How does Astride work?

1. Astride asks different questions to assess your competencies.

The series of questions are based on the five competence areas of the e-CF (European Competency Framework), a common framework that uses shared language for IT skills, and proficiency levels. The questions cover a wide range of competencies - from IT-specific skills to management and digital preparedness. It'll take you no more than 20 minutes to complete the assessment, and you can resume it anytime you want.

2. Astride gathers the information and processes it.

Based on how you answer the questions, the proprietary software will process each result and calculate your match with each skill in the e-CF. Such questions were created and refined after interviews with 80+ leading professionals in different fields, and Astride analyzes more than 250 data points to generate her unique, free Insights Report. Are you ready to discover what Astride has ready for you?
