AssessmentDay Comment on Graduate Applications

AssessmentDay, leading experts in online aptitude tests and numerical reasoning tests, comment on graduate application processes and their use of psychometric tests.

AssessmentDay is a leading provider of online psychometric tests, numerical reasoning tests and aptitude tests which can help graduates and job seekers secure employment. Due to their rapid growth in popularity, AssessmentDay’s website is now linked from 25 UK universities and they are a prominent resource on graduate career websites, such as WikiJob, Prospects.ac.uk, CareerBuilder, GradSouthWest and GraduatesYorkshire.

AssessmentDay has recently commented on the use of psychometric tests in graduate applications. AssessmentDay believe employers should bring the psychometric test forward to the first round of applicants instead of the second round, as this test can eliminate a large amount of applicants. As a result, an applicant will not waste their time going through rigorous processes only to be rejected.

A spokesperson for AssessmentDay commented: “While many believe applicants will be deterred by the idea of a psychometric test, it is in the applicant’s interest to discount them from an employment position as quickly as possible if they do not fit the role. Various application stages may ultimately only lead to disappointment and will only serve to slow down the employment process.”
