Ace the Assessment
If you thought your test-taking days ended when you left school, think again. Recent research shows that about 76% of organizations with more than 100 employees rely on assessment tools such as aptitude and personality tests for external hiring. That figure is expected to climb to 88% over the next few years. How can you get better at taking these tests so that they're opportunities to shine instead of stumbling blocks in your career? After 15 years of studying assessments and developing more than 100 of them for organizations, I can tell you there's no easy way to game well-designed tools.
