Webinar: 10 Reasons Why You Should Be Using Candidate Assessment Tests

Posted by Erin Borgerson on June 30, 2015

Here’s a scenario for you:

You have a position you have to fill. You post the job on popular job boards and watch your inbox flood with hundreds of some qualified and some not-so-qualified resumes. You take the time to filter which top job-seekers should be interviewed. Then, you run through a few interviews to finally make a hiring decision. Task complete, right?

But wait - there’s more.

Within a few months, you realize this new person you spent weeks to hire actually may not be the right fit for the job. Where’d you go wrong? You went through a structured hiring process, took the time to interview, and probably even ordered a background check or two.

You should have tried a candidate assessment; another way to quantifiably measure skill and will. Armed with an assessment, you already know on the first day your employee can truly do the job at hand and understand how they like to be managed. Imagine a world where you have a candidate with the right job fit, what endless possibilities could that lead to (i.e. more free time for you to enjoy)?
