Should You Only Test Candidates That Look Good On Paper?

  • Finding the core abilities of the candidate, which cannot be determined from their resume. In this case, the assessment test will ensure that the candidate can cope with the demands of the job.
  • Focusing on a candidate’s real potential rather than their past experience. By gauging someone’s ability to think on their feet, communicate with others, and problem-solve, businesses can better know whether they have the right person for the job.
  • Assessing intelligence, problem-solving skills, ability to learn, knowledge of core development skills… none of which will be on a candidate’s resume. An assessment test is more effective at measuring these aspects rather than a plain interview. These are critical components of any job, but they are especially important in programming jobs because so much of what we do is done in teams of different people.
