Recruitment tests: psychometrics and gamification

Date/Time: 25 October 2019, 1:15-1:45

Venue: King's Gate 1.20

A variety of recruitment tests are widely used by employers as part of the recruitment process, often being included at application stage and/or assessment centres. Psychometric assessments cover numerical, verbal and logical reasoning tests (aptitude tests) as well as personality questionnaires and situational judgement tests. The rise of gamification includes game like tests that aim to test your reflexes, resilience and your fit with the employer.

Come along to this 30 minute workshop to develop an understanding of the range of tests, look at some examples and develop your technique and strategy when completing them. You will learn useful tips, sources of support and how you can undertake further practice.

We want our services to be accessible to our students and graduates. Please get in touch if you have any specific requirements e.g. an alternative format, communication support, or other adjustment, in order to access our workshop/event.
