Nothing divides opinion quite like the use of psychometric tests during the recruitment process.
People either love or hate using them and/or sitting them, our experience suggests that more and more people are learning to love them.
That means as a candidate it is becoming increasingly likely that you will be asked to complete some sort of psychometric assessment during your interview process/es.
Even if you are not asked to sit an assessment, we strongly believe that understanding your personality better, what makes you tick and what your strengths and weaknesses are will improve your confidence.
Illustrating that you know yourself will show that you take your career seriously and ultimately therefore enhance your chances of landing the best job for you.
In 2009 we developed a relationship with Mindmill, in order to give you, our candidate the opportunity to learn more about yourself by sitting the assessment with access to your own consultant to then run through the resulting report.
A bit more about Mindmill:
We view ourselves as more than just another recruitment business, we see ourselves as Career Consultants with our goal being to help you to find a job that you love in order to build a rewarding and successful career.
We believe that our partnership with Mindmill helps us to achieve that in a number of ways.
Your Mindmill profile will allow you to gain a deeper insight into yourself, your motivations and preferred working and learning styles so that you can make better informed decisions about your career. The more you understand yourself the better able you are to judge what motivates you and the more you will realise how others perceive you. Both of these are critical aspects in your career development.
Our stats and data show that by completing a mindmill assessment you are more likely to secure an interview for the jobs you have applied for. In addition your Mindmill report will provide you and the interviewer with a list of suggested competency questions to cover in the interview, this gives you an opportunity to prepare accordingly for a more detailed conversation about you as a person and what makes you tick.
Finally, most managers make their hiring decisions based on soft skills and behavioural attributes over and above pure technical ability. Mindmill allows you to demonstrate your soft skills during the interview process in a more informed way meaning that your performance at interview will improve.
