Have you ever felt like you’re at the center stage when answering pre-employment tests? The heat of the spotlight on you may be nerve-wracking but think of the assessments as a chance to show off why you are tailor-made for that job.
After all, you're the headliner of your own success story.
Let's transform that nervous energy into an applause-worthy performance! Here’s how:
Stay calm – Don’t let stress or pressure fog your head. The calmer you stay, the clearer your thoughts become. Take deep breaths and conquer one question at a time. You'll build your own momentum from there and before you know it, you’re done!
Follow the directions provided – Not only does this show that you can follow detailed instructions and select the correct course of action, it also reflects your character.
Read the questions carefully – Refrain from speed-reading the items. In fact, read them twice if you must.
Ask questions – It may be daunting, but we keep our lines open for a reason and that is to help you whenever you need us. Worry not because we don’t see it as a sign of weakness, but of your commitment to getting the tests done right.
Honesty is the best policy – When taking personality tests or writing essays, you may be tempted to do so in a manner that you think will match what we are looking for, but please, don’t do this. Be your unique self and answer from your heart. This way, you’ll be more likely to showcase your best self while also putting yourself in a better position to evaluate whether the job is right for you.
Remember that the clock is your best friend – Mind the time you spend on accomplishing your tests and submitting your output. The sooner you pass, the faster your application can be processed.
Our goal, as recruiters, is to get to know as much about you as possible to determine whether or not you are fit for the job and the team.
Now that you are armed with the knowledge of how important assessments are and tips to ace them, take a bow because we are sure you can lead us to a decision that would land you a better career.
We’re rooting for you 😊
