Why Employers Need Pre-Employment Testing

“Interviews are terrible predictors of job performance” explains Dr. Adam Grant. “Consider a rigorous, comprehensive analysis of hundreds of studies of more than 32,000 job applicants over an 85-year period by Frank Schmidt and Jack Hunter. They covered more than 500 different jobs—including salespeople, managers, engineers, teachers, lawyers, accountants, mechanics, reporters, farmers, pharmacists, electricians, and musicians.” They found that reviewing resumes and conducting interviews alone is significantly less effective than using pre-employment testing to predict job performance.

Pre-Employment Tests Predict Performance

Pre-employment testing enables managers to screen out applicants with low potential, allowing them to focus on interviewing candidates with high potential. Pre-employment testing significantly increases the probability of hiring star performers. Below is a sample employment assessment test question:
