How Are Aptitude Tests Better Than Other Evaluation Methods?

The Aptitude Test has recently been introduced as a part of companies’ pre-employment assessment. It is considered a more reliable method for estimating candidates’ innate abilities than trying to gauge their personalities from their résumé or interview conversation. Depending on the type of the Aptitude Test that they administrate to their prospective employees, employers may measure their numerical and verbal reasoning, situational judgement, or diagrammatical reasoning. What, therefore, employers try to evaluate is how well job applicants perform specific tasks or how they react to particular situations. There is no raw score on the Aptitude Test; that is, your score is not measured by the number of questions you got right. Rather, your score on the Aptitude Test is calculated relatively to the scores received by all job candidates taking the test with you. Because your score on the Aptitude Test hinges so conspicuously on the performance of others, it is essential to come to your pre-employment assessment well-prepared. Practice with JobTestPrep’s comprehensive resources and stand out from other candidates for your applied position.

What Qualities Does the Personality Test Measure?

It has lately become common for employers to invite their job candidate to take the Personality Test. Many companies have added this test to their pre-employment assessment, because they care to hire not only good professionals but also people with whom it is pleasant to be around. They also want to ensure that their future employees will not exhibit production, property, political deviance and personal aggression at workplace. Consisting of numerous multiple-choice questions, the Personality Test allows employers to create applicants’ personality profile with precision and accuracy. Questions posed on this test is usually of two types. Job candidates are required to estimate people’s emotional reactions to certain situations. Or they need to rank their own agreement with given statements on the scale from 1 to 10. Although you are expected to give only honest and impromptu answers on the Personality Test, this does not mean that you should not prepare for it. The Personality Test is usually long and tiring, and you can start making mistakes as you progress through it. Mistakes will make your personality profile skewed. To avoid representing yourself incorrectly, practice with JobTestPrep’s resources before you take your actual exam.

How Can I Prep for a Panel Interview?

Granted the panel interview is harder to pass than a one and one, but this also gives you the opportunity to ask questions and open up a discussion. Generally, 6 or 7 people will participate in the panel including managers and team leaders, who will switch off asking you questions to ensure you have a serious grasp of the technical and interpersonal aspects of the position. Much of the questioning will revolve around how you might correct work situations on a sliding scale, while other questions will be about your work past and even hobbies. Company culture and office atmosphere is a big thing these days.

Why Is It Difficult to Succeed on the Test?

Competition between job candidates has lately become truly fierce. Only few job candidates arrive to the last stage of the hiring process. The majority of them get eliminated after their pre-employment tests. Do not, therefore, show up on your examination unprepared. Doing poorly on your test may cost you employment in your desired company. Prepare for your upcoming test with JobTestPrep’s exclusive resources. With them, you can stay tall on your exam and become an employee of the company.
