Gauge What Your Job Candidates Really Know
After reference checking, appropriately implemented skill and behavioral assessments can become the next most important tool for determining the right fit for the job. You obviously want an employee that is able to accomplish the work that they are being hired for. To guarantee that they have the professional and cognitive skills needed for the job, consider using a skills and cognitive ability test. Let us help you through this part of the hiring process.
Oftentimes, filling a position can be a long and arduous process requiring more effort than you initially thought. Pre-employment tests are a great way to speed up the process and weed out any job candidates that end up not having the skills or experience that they claim to have.
Verify Your Job Candidates’ Experience
While we have a separate employment verification process to verify that an applicant has the experience they claim to have, cognitive ability tests offer some hints as to whether or not they’re telling the truth. The skills assessment test will show if they have the skills necessary to perform the work, so it will offer hints as to whether they’ve performed a job where they’ve needed to use those skills.
For example, if a candidate does poorly on the skills assessment, but claims to have experience in a position where they would have used those skills, they may have either exaggerated the truth or simply lied about having the position altogether. If a candidate does poorly on the skills assessment and you’d like to verify their previous employment experience, we offer an employment verification process that will either confirm or deny that they have the experience that they claim to have.
