I’ve been submitting resumes on multiple sites and some of the applications sent an email back to me to take an assessment. I SUCK at test taking. Something about reading about a situation to decipher it when I’d rather take the situation into the real world and solve it hands on, stumps me. This is why I quit Finite math in high school. So I took the assessment after putting it off for over a week with the threat of not even being considered without taking the assessment in my inbox every other day. I got the next to lowest score. I honestly don’t know where to start trying to “study” to attempt to get a higher score because I don’t know what I got wrong. Now, in having had all of the applications that sent me the assessment rejected, I wonder if I should have reached out with a friendly excuse or some type of verbiage that would explain that while they might consider the assessment to be a great judge of talent, it really isn’t as far as myself and what I bring to the table. Tell me what you would do. #advice #assessments #application #jobsearch

Same happened to me. A few of the tests i didn’t”highly proficient” others were just barely passing but when u apply for the job and they need a certain one of the test results it offers to post your current results or retake the test. I chose not to retake the ones I barely passed and eventually I got offered a job in the field I was searching with adequate pay. You just have to keep trying! Took me 2 months without a job to find one that finally offered me a position. Keep it up! Don’t get discouraged!!!! Your time will come i promise!!!

Is it just me or do companies make you take assessments that have nothing to do with the job opening? Sometimes I feel like these assessments don’t make any sense or have anything to do with the job you’re applying for. #assessments
