Competency-based interview questions will cover a range of skills, including your accountability, adaptability, communication skills, leadership skills, resilience in stressful situations, etc. It is advisable for you to research and brush up on the competencies and skills your prospective employer is looking for prior to being interviewed.

How are Verbal Reasoning Tests Scored?

Like other aptitude tests, the Verbal Reasoning Test does not have a passing score. This does not mean, however, that you cannot fail your exam. Quite the contrary, sometimes, even if you answer correctly most of given questions, you may be told that you have done badly. The reason for this stems from a peculiar system used to score applicants’ results on the Verbal Reasoning Test. When you take this test, your scores are compared to a benchmark that includes scores of other job candidates competing for similar positions in a similar field. This scoring method allows employers to evaluate your verbal skills in relation to other employees working in the position for which you applied. Such scoring may place you at a decided disadvantage, even if you answer most of the questions on the test correctly. If other job candidates with whom you are compared get more questions right, your score will be considered lower than average, no matter how few mistakes you made.

What Are the Different Steps That HP May Utilize to Find the Right Candidate?

  • Pre-employment tests - Applicant Talent Assessments weed out the candidates that do not have the skills to properly perform on the job. The company wants to know you can do the technical work.
  • The Interview - This could include a screening phone call, followed by a first, second and even third interview. Of course, the process for C-Levels will be more intense than for lower level workers.
  • The follow up – After each stage make sure you follow up by thanking your interviewer for their time and to reiterate your interest in the position.

Jobtestprep will provide you all the tools you need to guide you through each stage of the process.
