What you need to know about these type of tests?
The types of exercises organisations are using with increasing frequency are collectively known as Simulation Exercises. They ‘simulate’ key elements of the role you have applied for. These ‘mock’ tasks will be similar in some way to parts of your new job. Your performance is being tested to see how well you can do in a ‘mock’ environment so your potential employers can predict how well you will perform in the actual job.
Why are these tests now being used?
- The results are more reliable and relevant. If you are tested in a very practical or ‘hands-on’ way and compared to what is actually required for the job, the organisation has a better chance of selecting the right person (rather than relying on what you say in your application form or interview). ‘Showing’ what you can do is far better than simply ‘saying’ it.
- These sorts of tests provide defensible evidence which protects the organisation from dispute. If a candidate is not happy with the outcome of their application, this type of assessment provides proof to back it up i.e. ‘we tested you against specific relevant criteria using scientifically tested, objective methods’ rather than the much less legally defensible ‘the interviewers did or didn’t like what you were saying based on their subjective opinion’.
So where does this leave you?
Without our help you will probably be:
- Unclear what to expect from these type of tests.
- At a disadvantage compared to people who have been through similar tests before who have had feedback to help them improve their performance.
- Unsure how to properly maximise your performance and excel in these type of assessments.
