Assessing Graduates

Assessing Graduates and Management Trainees

Hiring the best and brightest graduates presents many challenges for employers.  Assessing Graduates is the scientific approach to ensure that you can identify your future business leaders? Are your competitors beating you to the most talented graduates?  In an increasingly competitive environment, employers face high volumes of applicants making it difficult to hire the right graduates, management trainees and professionals. Use Testing Talent’s intelligence and expertise to inform your graduate hiring decisions to objectively, sift out, and screen in talented people.   Our wide range of psychometric tests and assessment materials are a reliable and valid way in assessing graduates.

Select the right graduate and provide a positive experience

The need to identify the right graduate, before your competitors do, is critical and requires an objective, effective, scalable and candidate-friendly process that does not rely on educational qualifications alone as a measure of potential.  Using our range of aptitude and personality tests you will enhance the probability of selecting the right graduates as well as providing them with a positive experience of dealing with your organisation.

Aptitude Tests

  • Verbal (Working with Words)
  • Numerical (Working with Numbers)
  • Diagrammatic (Working with Systems)
  • Abstract (Measures abstract critical reasoning)
  • Combination (Tests measuring all of the above)

Personality Tests

From our work with employers many report that whilst graduate and management trainees may well be academically well qualified, they lack understanding of the demands in a working environment. Using our personality tests this provides to employers an insight into how the individual will ‘fit’ into the workplace as well as performing effectively in the job role.
