Understanding Some Common Types of Assessments that Must be Included in Hiring Process

There are different types of technical round which are usually conducted as per the job position for which the candidate is hiring. However, often times, we don’t understand the fact that along with technical knowledge it is the communication and personality from the candidate’s ends as well that matters the most. At times, we may take these things for granted and think that giving the desired training would help. But the fact is such day would never come and at the time of the bog day when you would want your team to represent your company in front of the clients, they would not be able to do that in spite of being so good in their technical knowledge. Don’t let this happen but yes, you can conduct some common assessment as a platform to hire those candidates who would be good in all these behavioral traits as well as have better technical knowledge.

Aptitude test:

The focus of this type of test is to understand if the candidate has got general knowledge and the knowledge which he can use when some challenging situation comes. The focus of such test is to let the employer know if the candidate can come up with new ideas and innovations more times and whether his contribution to the organization would prove beneficial or not.

Psychometric test:

It is not just work related knowledge but also it is expected that the person whom you wish to hire shall have a good knowledge in terms of experience, and understand that flexible work culture would have different mindset. To work with different mindset while keeping him cool is something not everyone can do. But form a candidate whom applies for the job in your organization is expected to have such kind of approach. Understand the behavioral traits are the focus of such type of test.

Personality test:

The candidate that you have shortlisted might be pretty good in the technical knowledge but it is equally important that the person knows how well to represent himself in front of the clients. If I is his ideas that he has come up with then he deserves to showcase it to the client and not you. But if he doesn’t have the good confidence level then it is all a waste. That is why. Make sure the candidate you choose has strong personality with a pleasing one so that client would feel good to have his company in the meeting span.
