During an interview, it is much harder to assess candidates behavioural traits and personality, than it is to assess their education, experience, skills, appearance, and punctuality.
To get a better overall evaluation of the candidate, we use psychometric testing to find the best suitable candidate for the position. It gives us a more objective overview of a candidate’s character, strengths, weaknesses and working style. Typically, a psychometric test is not used in isolation, but as one component in an assessment centre.
Psychometric testing helps to gauge the future performance of a candidate and helps you make successful hiring decisions.
