Various Types of Employment Tests

Employment tests are designed to help the employer choose the best candidate for any given job. They are created to determine whether a person will be the perfect fit for the position. In order to do this, different types of tests are provided to help employers learn a candidate’s maximum capacity for activities relative to the job. A few of the most common and helpful types of employment tests are categorized as:
