  • Record a video interview or complete a short phone interview: This interview is to verify basic information about your work history as well as to discuss what you are looking for in your new position.
  • Take a personality test: The purpose of personality tests is to evaluate your workplace-related behaviors. While many companies claim that there are no right or wrong answers in personality tests, the truth is that employers use them to check if your personality matches the job and the company.
    • Take an aptitude test: Depending on the position, you may have to take a situational judgment test, a numerical reasoning test, or a verbal reasoning test. These tests measure your abilities to make decisions and process numerical and written information, respectively. Passsing an entrance exam is an important step towards getting hired.

  • Your interview may be one-on-one or it may be a group interview. Depending on the position to which you are applying, you may be asked technical questions. You may also have to participate in team exercises so that the interviewers can see how you act in a group.
