At CIMA we recognise the importance of helping you be ready for the workplace and that includes your applications for jobs.

Psychometric testing has become increasing popular with employers in the recruitment of their apprenticeships, internships, placements, graduate roles and jobs at all levels in fact as part of a wider assessment process. These tests measure someone’s skills, abilities or personality, according to a defined set of criteria that a company has identified as important when evaluating potential new hires.

Linkedin is a popular tool for professional networking and it is no secret that many employers use the platform to view job applicants and their history. Linkedin is a great platform to become commercially aware and business minded. Did you know that being commercial aware is one of the top three things that employers look for in candidates?

The aim of this session is to better prepare you for undertaking these tests, we will cover:

  • Why employers use psychometric tests and what the tests look like.
  • How to prepare and approach questions (including an interactive live session!)
  • Looking at Linkedin and its benefits.
