Sitting a Psychometric Test? Preparation is Key
Psychometric testing is an efficient way of gaining an insight into someone’s personality, and the way they think. It can help develop team spirit at work while indicating what an individual’s priorities are.
Most employers – an estimated 65% – use a psychometric test when they are recruiting. At the same time, some organisations also use this form of testing as part of their staff development and retention programme. And you can be asked to undergo psychometric testing whatever your level, from school leaver to executive management.
So gaining an understanding of your own strengths and weaknesses in advance is a crucial first step in preparing for these assessments.
Learn how you would appear to a prospective employer and you can tip the balance in your favour before you’ve even turned up to take the test.
You may not have realised that psychometric testing can also help you to decide whether a career change is right for you. In fact, it’s no exaggeration to say that just a few questions can end up having a dramatic impact on your life, whether you’re looking into career planning or even personal relationships.
Online psychometric tests can be taken anywhere, so are very efficient. But you need to practice before you sit an assessment for real. At Assessment Day, we can help you prepare with our real examples of online psychometric tests employers use.
