Lots of employers today use online tests to check your abilities, judgement skills and personality type – normally as the first step once you’ve applied for a job. They’re nothing to worry about and can even help you show skills you don’t get to demonstrate in an interview.
Often called ‘psychometric assessments’, these tests are a bit different to tests you might have done at school. These tests are designed to determine your ‘personality’ (your preferred style of behaviour) and your ‘aptitude’ (your ability in certain areas, like verbal and numeracy skills).
