Know How You Can Hire Right Candidate Using Pre-Employment Tests!

Apr 24th 2015 at 4:49 AM

Who knew that you would have more applications submitted to you than you would be able to count when you put up that job posting last week? Of course, you’d rather have more qualified people apply for the position than be left scavenging for appropriate candidates, but it takes more than a glance at a resume to determine if someone is a good fit for a job. Are there any concrete ways to test someone’s skills or general abilities before actually hiring them? Thankfully, pre-employment tests are available that you can use to effectively assess and screen potential employees!

The Drug Test: One of the Most Popular Screening Devices

So what exactly do pre-employment tests normally consist of? One category of testing that most people are familiar with is drug screening tests. These are popular and are useful for ensuring that potential employees are not active drug users. The test provides accurate results that can quickly screen out potential illegal drug users.

Skill Test to Find the Right Fits

Drug screenings aren’t the only pre-employment tests that you have at your disposal. You probably want to test your potential employees’ acumen for completing certain job-related tasks. These tasks can include standard, commonly assessed attributes such as typing speed or skills or abilities that are unique to the position. The flexibility that pre-employment screenings can offer allows you the ability to customize the assessments to fit your and your organization’s needs.

Employees Can Screen Themselves In or Out of the Job!

Another added benefit of pre-employment tests is that it gives the employees themselves more insight into what they will be expected to do as well as some tentative job-related duties. For many, they will come away from the assessment feeling good about their prospects, knowing they are capable of what the job will require of them and confident that they performed well on the test. However, some may realize after taking a test or assessment that the position may not be a great fit for them. This is an additional means of helping you screen out unqualified employees…they screen themselves out!

When you have decided you need to be spending less time interviewing and even training unqualified employees, consider the time and energy that you’ll save by implementing one or more pre-employment tests: better employees with less of a time investment!
