How to prepare
Whether you’ve never been on an assessment day, or you’ve attended many, these evaluation days can prove daunting – even for the most experienced candidate. This is where our wealth of knowledge and expertise of the entire recruitment process can help you to be prepared for all eventualities.
Many assessment days involve some form of testing. This could be in the form of psychometric evaluations. Other group activities could include role playing, interviews or group tasks; all designed to give you the opportunity to show off your skills in comparison with the other interviewees.
As part of the day’s activities, you might be asked to make a presentation. If this is the case, make sure you give yourself lots of time to ensure you understand the brief exactly and if you have the chance beforehand, family and friends make an excellent test audience.
It’s not just about your CV. When you’re getting ready for an assessment day, your potential employer will be looking out to see how you’ll represent their business. And that goes for how you dress, your body language and tone of voice. So dress well, have confidence, and go for it!
