How to conquer your biggest job application fear
The job application process is daunting. If you make it through the interview, the next step could be psychometric testing.
We all dread this part of the process! Don’t stress, we’ve got some tips to help you get through it…
Carefully read the instructions Slowly and calmly read the instructions so you can mentally prepare for the activity ahead.
Pace yourself Have a watch or clock nearby so you can keep an eye on the amount of time you have left. Don’t rush yourself, it will cause panic and will affect the accuracy of your answers.
Be honest There are no right or wrong answers on a personality test so don’t be afraid to be honest. The test is designed to analyze the way that you best work in a role and with your colleagues.
Set your environment If you are sent a psychometric test to complete online in your own space, make sure you have a quiet and calm spot to work so that you are free from distractions.
Practice If you haven’t done a psychometric test before, jump online and practice one so you know what to expect when you take the real one. Practicing will help you feel prepared and will kill those nerves.
Have no fear Now you’re ready to conquer your psychometric test!
