Absolutely! Many employers believe that it is better to use a knowledge and/or technical skills test to assess candidates for technical positions. Although knowledge and technical skill tests are important to understand whether a candidate possesses the necessary knowledge and demonstrates the technical skills to perform the job today, they can’t predict how quickly candidates can acquire new knowledge or how easily candidates can be trained on new technical skills. These abilities are crucial for long-term success in any position, especially given that technical knowledge and skills change rapidly.
Using RightHire’s assessments, in addition to the knowledge / technical skill tests help employers measure capabilities such as problem-solving, critical thinking, attention to detail, as well as the ability to quickly learn, digest, and apply new information.
