Online assessments for jobs
Many local and international companies in both the private and public sector now rely on pre-employment tests, such as aptitude and personality tests, as the most effective method to measure your ‘fit’, or match, for a position you apply for. These tests tell employers what they need to know, not just what you want to share with them.
Why pre-employment tests might stop you getting the job you want
One of the key challenges of these pre-employment tests is to ensure they measure an applicant’s true capabilities and characteristics, as it’s widely known that pressure and stress can drag some job seekers’ test scores down. You may find that ‘perfect’ candidates, who have both the right experience and capabilities, are filtered out of the recruitment process merely because they didn’t pass the basic pre-employment test requirements. Once your pre-employment test finds your profile does not match the requirements, it will be almost impossible for you to remain in the race to get the job you applied for.
