Can Skill-Assessment Tests Help You Identify/Get Your First Job?

by IV S. Consultant

Landing that first job is no mean accomplishment, and even though there are jobs for freshers, sometimes as a first-timer you could be unaware of such opportunities. When you opt for an online platform that brings recruiters and job seekers together, you have a great chance of landing that ideal job. Such an online portal or app also provides tools including a pre-employment skill assessment test that would be of great use.

Still wondering how skill assessment tests can help you with that first job? 

   If you are a first-time applicant or a student, you have no idea where you stand in terms of job readiness. How about opting for an online web portal/app that ensures job seekers and applicants meet each other on a common forum? The free online platform lets students upload their video profile/resume so that their overall personality comes across to recruiters. Their communication skills, language skills and presence can all make an impression. Apart from this, the platform also helps job applicants with a pre-employment skill assessment test.

   The test assesses students on criteria such as technical knowledge and skills, basically, core subjects, quantitative aptitude, verbal skills, logic, psychometric/personality, communication and technical - programming. Based on these criteria, the students are given a seven-digit score. This score and the tests put together helps recruiters get a comprehensive idea of a student’s weakness and strengths. Screening of candidates becomes a less cumbersome and more scientific exercise so applicants stand a greater chance of landing one of the jobs for freshers.

   The pre-employment skill assessment, much like uploading of a video profile, helps students showcase their talent and personality. The score also means freshers know their weaknesses, and can improve their knowledge and presentation skills. By assessing what kind of jobs for freshers they are offered, job seekers can understand their aptitudes as well. The score and recruiters’ offers will help them identify the correct job description and industry commensurate with their skills. 

Hiring freshers, especially by way of campus interviews and screenings can be a time-consuming and chaotic exercise. There are no guarantees that a really talented fresher will land a job through this process. However, when there’s an online platform where everything, from assessment to showcasing of skills, is carried out in a systematic manner, it saves a lot of time and energy. What’s more, the likelihood of a fresher landing the perfect job is really high!
