Staffing and Executive Search

Nervous about the hiring process at a staffing and human resources agency like Robert Half and Korn Ferry? Let JobTestPrep help you get hired. Our Staffing and Human Resources Bundle was designed by our employment testing experts to help you prepare for your interviews and assessments.

What Is the Hiring Process at Staffing and HR Agencies?

  1. Apply: Send in your application through the agency's website or through a recruiter. Check your CV to make sure that it includes the keywords listed in the job description, and tailor your cover letter to the position for which you are applying.
  2. Take an online assessment: Depending on the position for which you are applying, you will need to take a pre-employment assessment test. Usually, this will be a personality or situational judgment test, both of which are outlined below.
  3. Complete a phone interview: This is preliminary interview designed to weed out candidates who do not fit the basic requirements of the position. Review both your CV and the job description beforehand so that you can emphasize your relevant work experience during the interview.
  4. Complete an in-person interview: This interview, which will take place at one of the company's locations, will require you to answer questions that are both behavioral and situational in nature. Whether or not you will be hired depends on this crucial interview, so be sure to prepare beforehand using our interview guide, included in the Staffing and Human Resources Bundle.

Personality Test: Personality tests evaluate your work-related behaviors and categorize your personality according to various criteria. You want to emphasize your interpersonal skills and work ethic, but you also need to be honest. In rder to strike this delicate balance, practice using JobTestPrep's full practice personality test and guide.

Situational Judgment Test: Situational Judgment Tests (SJTs) assess how you would react to work-related scenarios, such as dealing with a difficult coworker. They are designed to evaluate your decision-making and problem-solving skills. It is crucial to practice before taking an SJT because often, more than one answer appears to be suitable. There may be several good answers, but only one is the correct answer. Our Staffing and Human Resources Bundle can help you get ready for your SJT.
