When talking about the hiring process and career.place, we are often asked how we picked our assessment partner. It makes sense – people want to know if we selected wisely (yes, we did). But what we realized is, many times the question is not to understand how we picked the right assessments, but how we picked assessments at all.
The world of pre-employment assessments is confusing at best. There are hundreds of options measuring countless attributes in a variety of different ways. The claims span from “90 seconds will tell you everything you need to know to select the best candidates” to “our multi-hour assessments dive deep into dozens of facets of personality to find that perfect combination”.
To make things even more confusing, not all assessments are effective, and some will do far more harm than good if used incorrectly or used at all.
So, how do you find the right assessments in this sea of options?
To answer that question, we documented our thorough assessment selection process in a whitepaper “The Art of Selecting Assessments”. This step-by-step guide will walk you through on what to look for and what questions to ask when evaluating assessment providers.
Or, of course, you could always use career.place with our suite of embedded assessments already mapped to thousands of occupations so you measure only what matters.
