Three Tips for Your Successful Skills Assessment Test

by IV S. Consultant

If you are in the job market for the first time, preparedness and expertise matter a lot. You would need to take at least one skills assessment test or more, if you are to get one of the fresher jobs in Bangalore or any other location you are eyeing. Here are some tips that help you ace that test:

1. Be prepared: It is obvious, but many of us think we’ll cross the bridge when we actually get there. Students are also of the opinion that it is impossible to prepare on a hypothetical set of questions or challenges. Staying prepared would definitely help. Look online and you are bound to find plenty of sample questions. If you are looking at a test offered by an online portal that acts as a bridge between recruiters and job seekers, you should know that the skills assessment test is chalked out on seven different categories. You will be test on your verbal, logical, psychometric/personality, quantitative, communication, technical knowledge in your core domain, and general technical skills. So, take up some online mock tests and keep at them for a good score.

2. Be honest: You could land yourself one of the fresher jobs in Bangalore if you are honest and grounded. Several tests are designed wherein your levels of honesty and work ethic are tested; don’t fake skills or your basic aptitude/traits just so you land a job. Be clear about what you want, and try not to be too clever. Knowing yourself, your requirements and qualifications is the first step towards an honest approach. You will ace your test if you are honest and clear, and not resort to devious means such as copying or rephrasing someone else’s answers or trying to take on someone else’s personality traits. 

3. Be confident: Practice will help you understand how to answer tests. Practice will also help you with your confidence levels. Sometimes, there are questions that you may not immediately know the answers to. Skip them; answer the ones you are confident and don’t get bogged down. Give yourself enough time to go back to the ones that are tough and tackle them once you finish the easy bits. 

Remember that the assessment test is often used in combination with interviews, your resume, background checks and other qualifications you have. Employers expect you to meet a certain standard; you don’t necessarily have to be a topper here! Be aware of the big picture and know why you are being assessed and what is required of you. Go ace it now!
