become increasingly popular for companies to use psychometric
tests to access their candidates. These tests are commonly used
by larger corporations who have many candidates for many roles.
The purpose of the
tests is to assess your motivation, interests and values, as well
as your behavior and attitudes. These questions don't generally
have a right or wrong answer.
The test often comes
in the form of a personality questionnaire, with multiple choice
questions. Once the test is done you are often placed in a category
which summarises what sort of person you are and how you react
in different situations.
It is important to
practice these tests before you take them so you get used to them.
There are many of these tests available on the internet.
