One of the elements of technology recruiting often overlooked is the carrying out of psychological tests before and interviews are conducted. This is helpful in many ways as it helps root out those who might be psychologically unfit for the job. Many applicants will look perfect for the job on paper however in reality are completely incapable of handling the job from an emotional and mental standpoint. If your company decides to implement the use of psychological tests it would be a good idea to hire an expert to conduct as well as evaluate the tests for you.
Once you’ve decided to implement the tests it is then time to decide on a specific test to use. This is also an important step because the test should make sure to touch on the personality and analysis that is relevant to your company. Some tests take 5 minutes long while others are much more in depth. In order to choose the right one it is also suggested that you consider the advice of your hired executive search staff.
