Telecom and cable companies use interviews and assessment tests to ensure that that are hiring only the top candidates. If you want to get hired, you will have to outshine the competition by achieving a high score on your assessment test and by impressing the hiring managers at your interview. Our Telecom and Cable Bundle, which is specially tailored for jobs in this industry, can help you prepare for all the steps of the hiring process.

What Is the Hiring Process in the Telecom and Cable Industry?

  1. Apply: Send in your application to the company website or apply through a recruiter. Before submitting your application, be sure to review your CV and cover letter to make sure that you are emphasizing your relevant work experience.
  2. Assessment Tests: Complete a pre-employment test at home. This is often a personality test, and the employer is assessing whether or not your personality would be a good fit for the position and the company. Although you should answer questions honestly, it is imperative that you practice beforehand so that you understand how the test works and how to achieve optimal results.
  3. Phone Interview: This is a short conversation with a hiring manager. The manager is checking to see if the information that you provided about yourself in your CV and personality test is correct. If you make a favorable impression, you will be invited for an in-person interview, often in the same week.
  4. In-Person Interview: This interview is more intensive than the phone interview. Prepare to answer questions relating to your work experience, qualifications, availability, and motivation for applying to the position. You may be asked situational questions that evaluate how you act in a variety of work-related scenarios, such as a disagreement with a coworker. You may engage in role play and pitch products to the hiring managers. You may also need to give a presentation which you must prepare on the spot. To get ready for your interview, JobTestPrep's Telecom and Cable Bundle includes an interview guide with tips and tricks for acing your job interview.

What Tests Will I Have to Take?

Personality Test: These tests are used to evaluate candidates for all positions. There are a variety of personality tests used by different employers, but usually, you will be presented with a statement and asked to rank how much you agree or disagree with it. For example, "I often get angry at work"- strongly agree (5), agree (4), neither agree nor disagree (3), disagree (2), and strongly disagree (1). It is important to be consistent with your answers and to select answers which portray a conscientious, pleasant employee. For practice personality tests, see our Telecom and Cable Bundle. Situational Judgment Test: These tests are often given to candidates for sales and customer service positions. The test details a number of work-related scenarios, and for each scenario, you must choose the best and worst way to react. It is crucial to practice beforehand because often there are a number of good or bad options, but there is always only one best or worst option.

Numerical Reasoning Test: Primarily used to evaluate candidates for finance positions, numerical reasoning tests measure your knowledge of basic math concepts and ability to interpret information in the form of graphs and tables. Our Telecom and Cable Bundle includes practice tests and study guides that can help you practice for your numerical reasoning test.

Mechanical Reasoning Test: For engineering jobs, you may have to take a mechanical reasoning test, which measures your knowledge of basic mechanical concepts. While the test is not difficult, if you haven't reviewed these concepts in a while, you should practice beforehand so that the test goes smoothly.
