Real Assessments, Real Easy
Leave Your Candidate with a Great First Impression

With Cactus, send a short and sweet email to candidates with a link to complete their assessment. No lengthy verification codes or user account creation is required. It's simple, secure, and effective.

Assessments are stressful enough. Our interface is extremely user-friendly and makes the assessment process straightforward for candidates. No confusion. No frustration.
