More than 80% of employers now use online assessments to help guide their hiring decisions. These assessments are used to measure the abilities, personality, attitudes, and skills of job applicants. Hiring can feel risky for employers and the information these tools generate is designed to make these decisions feel safer, fairer, and less subjective.
So what are employers actually expecting and getting from these tests? Where do they fit in the hiring process? Are they fair to all applicants, regardless of their background or age? Can you prepare for them? These are just some of the questions, concerns, and apprehensions that those of us less familiar with these tools may have.
In this session, we’ll tackle these questions, and more, head on. Josh Millet, Founder and CEO of Criteria Corporation, will demystify online assessments, helping us understand their purpose, design, and application. He’ll also help us understand what they can and can’t tell employers and how we can use them to our advantage as job seekers.
