psychometric test tips

The psychometric test has become an important part of the recruiting process. The test evaluates candidates beyond their education, skills, and experience and instead measures a candidate’s mind. The test helps recruiters find the best people that suit the job as it shows employers the personal characteristics and cognitive ability of an individual and compare it with other individuals’ results.

Employers choose to use the psychometric test for a better overall evaluation of a candidate which could benefit both the employer and potential employee. The psychometric test is believed to show a candidate’s character, working style, strengths and weakness. It could also help show the potential future performance of a candidate and allow employers make a successful decision. The psychometric test has two main types; personality and ability.1

Personality and Interest

The personality and interest test measures how you do things and the way you interact with people within your environment. The mechanics of this test is that it is able to determine your personality through questions that ask about your feelings, thoughts and behaviour.

Aptitude and Ability

The aptitude and ability test measures your ability in carrying out different tasks and assesses logical reasoning and thinking performance. Within this test, there are sub topics including:

  1. Verbal Ability
  2. Evaluates you on your understand of the written and verbal language and usually include questions of spelling, grammar, sentence completion, analogies, word groups, instructions, critical reasoning and verbal deductions.
  1. Numeric Ability
  2. Covers basic arithmetic of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division; number sequences; and simple mathematics of percentages, powers, fractions etc. The test is to assess your basic numeracy and could also be categorised as a speed test.
  1. Abstract Reasoning
  2. This test is different from the others as it includes questions that have little to no applicable use in the real world. The results are able to measure your general intellectual ability and whether you are able to understand complex ideas.
    The questions would require you to be able to recognise patterns and similarities between shapes and figures. They are most important for jobs that involve dealing with abstract ideas and concepts and jobs that involve:
    • A high degree of problem solving
    • Dealing with complex data or concepts
    • Developing strategies or policies
    • Performing non-routine tasks
  1. Spatial Reasoning
  2. Involves the ability to visualise and manipulate two-dimensional or three-dimensional shapes and patterns. This test is essential for many jobs in design, illustration, architecture, publishing, technology and some branches of science and mathematics.
    The questions for this test including shape matching, shape rotation, combining shapes, cube views in three-dimensions, and manipulation of other solid shapes. There may also be questions using maps and plans for areas in emergency services, military, and law enforcement jobs.
  1. Mechanical Reasoning
  2. Measures your knowledge on mechanical and physical concepts. The questions depend on your knowledge of levers, pulleys, gears, springs, simple electrical circuits, tools and shop arithmetic.
    If you’re taking the test for emergency services and military jobs, the questions would concentrate on principles than calculations. On the other hand, mechanical reasoning for craft and technical jobs would expect you to make calculations and may also be asked about tools and its use.
    The results of this test are then compared to results of others within a particular group or specific criteria. Your score will show whether you meet or lack the ability needed to carry out a certain task required.

Preparing for the Test2,3

 

  1. Know which test you will be doing
  2. Some employers let you know and provide information on the test you will face, however some won’t. You have to find out what test and exercises you will be doing so further prepare yourself and have enough practice.
  1. Have good physical and mental shape
  2. Make sure you’re well rested before the test and produce good results during the test. Being in bad shape could also affect your attitude and perspective which would reflect badly onto your scores. Do your best and have a positive attitude throughout the day.
  1. Practice in advance
  2. Practice is important to familiarise yourself to the questions that you may face once in the real test. Practice will help you succeed and work with material that you’ve already done during your practice time. Focus on areas that you lack in during practice so that once you do the test, you’ll be able to do better and have better results.
    Not only do you need to practice the questions, but you also need to be able to practice against the time. Psychometric tests have a time limit and practicing under that time limit will not only help you work faster but also exercise your brain.
  1. Get to know the type of test questions
  2. Familiarise yourself with the format of the psychometric test and make sure that you’re practicing the right test questions. It’ll be easy if you have practiced enough and know what categories you’ll be doing.
  1. Be honest
  2. The test is designed to indicate any inconsistency in your answers. Make sure to be yourself and be honest with your answers as the results will reflect you and your work behaviour.

There is no right or wrong answer in a psychometric test and the results will give an insight on the potential that a candidate holds and how they will perform in a work environment. A study shows that the psychometric test can show results that can account up to 60% of an employee’s performance.

The results also draw up conclusions on whether candidates are suitable for the job, able to work in the work environment, able to cope with the demands of the position, and whether they hold the skills that are required.

GradConnection chats to Grad App about their cleverly designed app, how it started, their involvement in the Top100 and what makes them a leading graduate-specific application tracking system

Grad App 

What exactly is Grad App?

Grad App is an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) which gives your applicants a seamless, fully branded and customised experience from application form to offer. For you and your business it provides quick, user friendly access to real time application and recruitment data via our unique live dashboards. It is Australia’s first graduate specific ATS designed to improve accuracy and save huge amounts of grad managers time.

When and why did Grad App start?

About 5 years ago we saw (and heard!) a lot of frustration in the graduate market due to the high cost of recruitment systems and often their inability to be flexible with customisation and functionality specific to the unique needs of the Graduate Market. Using our combined knowledge of the recruitment, design, software development and the Graduate Industry, we saw an opportunity to build something that truly has a positive impact. So, we developed a web app that is customised to fit your needs, is cost effective, capable of saving you time and has the ability to report in real time, all whilst showcasing your brand (not ours!).

No doubt we needed Grad App... but what drove you to become involved with the Top100 Graduate Employer and Future Leader Awards?

Grad App is committed and focused to the Graduate market, with a special interest in the development and recognition of high potential Graduates. We believed Grad App could help find and process the best applicants, give Fusion (the recruiter) the most effective and user-friendly system experience and of course, what better medium to connect talented students with top employers than the Top 100 Future Leaders Competition?!

What makes Grad App a leading graduate-specific application tracking system (ATS)?

We’ve designed this system with YOU in mind. We know and understand your needs and frustrations and want to bring you a cost effective, user friendly and highly capable solution. We are the most agile ATS on the market today. Because we are not constrained by an outdated system/integration we are able to develop features and provide them to market very quickly. We can do this while also providing a very high level of data security which is why our client base stretches from small start-ups to top level businesses and government departments. The uptake of the product has been incredible.

We love the look and feel of the app, what was your thinking around the design and functionality?

Our aim when we designed Grad App was to ensure we were user friendly for both the applicant and the Employer. This aim remains at the forefront of our vision as we continually drive towards a completely intuitive interface. Our training with most new clients is now down to less than an hour due to the ease of use and practical, logical and intuitive system design.

If you could have any famous person promote your system who would it be?

Liam (or Chris!) Hemsworth – because he’s Australian made, easy on the eye and sexy, just like Grad App!

GET READY... GET SET... ATTRACT!

Posted by Nikki Barnard

December 2nd, 2016

When it comes to graduate programmes, a clear and well thought out graduate attraction strategy will be what sets you apart from the rest, as you position your company as the employer of choice

In order to select the top graduates, you need to attract them first. Here are a few things to bear in mind when putting together your attraction strategy:

1. GET READY…

Attracting the right candidate for your graduate recruitment program is usually determined by the old “what you put in is usually what you get out” cliché’. This certainly rings true for graduate recruitment, as the more effort you as an organisation put into your attraction strategy the greater the calibre of student you will be able to select from.

In order to do this, you need to define your student target group and understand what matters to them. Times have changed and the work environment is constantly evolving. Young graduates know what they want and what is important to them and as such, graduate programs need to be clear on a few things:

  • work-life balance
  • challenging and stimulating work
  • international opportunities
  • opportunities for advancements
  • learning and development prospects
  • clear goals and regular feedback
  • compensation and benefits

How I hear you say? Be a professional stalker. Think about the person you (ideally) would like to work for your organisation, then be specific about what you can offer and how that would matter to them. The other vital step is to identify your channels and providers - the key is quality over quantity.

2. GET SET…

Gearing your yourself up to showcase your organisation is the next fundamental cog in the proverbial graduate attraction wheel. In order to do this, you need to get online and make your company known.

Students in their exploratory stages may be aware of your company, but not necessarily of your employer brand or employee value position (EVP). Help them picture you as their employer, by showcasing your organisation and your job opportunities. It is helpful to bear in mind that strong employer brands spend less time and resources on hiring, and have better employee retention and increased productivity.

The bottom line, when showcasing your company, comes down to authenticity. Communicate your company, its culture, values and benefits. Don't forget your uniqueness is what will set you apart from the rest.

3. ATTRACT!

Like attracts like - if you are wanting to select the top graduates for your organisation then you need to be top employers and be ready for them. Stay current and ahead by:

  • Setting clear targets for your attraction campaigns - Determine the criteria for a successful campaign such as better calibre of students, shorter screening times, higher offer-to-acceptance ratio, and increased awareness of employer brand. Having clear goals up front will determine the success and return on investment (ROI) of your attraction campaign.
  • Consistently measuring your progress and adjusting it if you need to - Keep your eye on the analytics and readjust your content or channels if needed. In an ever-evolving market, where young graduates are at the forefront, you need to keep up and be willing to move along with it.
  • Remembering to celebrate and acknowledge your successes - Don’t be shy… go on brag! Be proud of your organisation and let others know how you feel. Remember that the most powerful form of marketing is word of mouth, so get people talking.

University eSports League

University eSports League

Introducing, the University eSports League (UEL)!

Following on from the blog post about how so many students find their way into IT, we are pleased to announce the University eSports League, brought to you by GradConnection and IAG!   The UEL is the latest, newest and coolest IT attraction event Australia has seen, so if you have a focus on finding the right IT students or have an interest in providing a gateway for more people to choose technology as a career, check this out.

eSports 101

Firstly, before we get into the details you are probably asking what exactly is eSports? In recent years, computer games have gone from a mere hobby and pastime to becoming one of the biggest businesses in the world, where audiences are now tuning in around the globe to watch people play competitive computer games. In the same way we are used to watching traditional sports, computer games have become a spectator sport enjoyed by millions.

To put this in perspective, 6.5 million watched the 2016 AFL Grand Final. The 2016 League of Legends Grand Final had 36 million viewers, which was up 16 million from last year. However, League of Legends is just one of many popular computer games, with others also drawing audiences in the millions.

If you want to check out the scale of these events, take a look at the video below:

How it starts

Many children start gaming from a young age. From iPads to Game Boys and eventually graduating to Playstations and full blown gaming PC’s, making technology a very comfortable addition to their lives. So when it comes down to what path they should choose for their career, IT is generally the number one option on the list. To find out more about this pathway - check out the full write up here.

What is the UEL?

The University eSports League is a nationwide eSports tournament for students right across the country and has just kicked off with our first partners jumping on board - IAG, PwC and Telstra who have a focus not only on attracting IT students, but also providing a strong avenue for more people to discover and choose a technology related career.

Streamed live and online for thousands to see, students will be battling their way through online tournaments, supported by our partner companies, for audiences around the country to tune in and watch.

Those students and teams who come out victorious will be flown to Sydney for an unforgettable grand final at our purpose built eSports arena. Streamed live and online via sites like twitch.tv, for a large viewer base, this event will be open to all university students, IT and gaming societies to attend and cheer on their teams.

University eSports League

The UEL is the latest and greatest attraction event for technology related students, where companies can take notice of them doing something they have a genuine interest in. Beats a resume workshop any day!

Why should I be involved?

The UEL is a chance not only to interact with technology students in a relevant, comfortable and genuine way but also provide a strong gateway for students to discover technology as a possible career. All the while, tackling the under supply of IT graduates which is something that we can’t do alone.

The UEL will help position your company as innovators in this exciting, new space as well as understanding and supporting something that these students are extremely passionate about. Through GradConnection’s marketing channels, relevant IT, computer science and gaming societies (with a current member base of 40,000) UEL sponsors will receive some of the most widespread yet highly targeted student reach possible. The UEL is not to be missed and will no doubt grow year on year into one of the largest events the Australian graduate and eSports industries have seen.

There are options available for every budget, all of whom will receive significant coverage. To get involved, contact [email protected] for more detailed information, full stats about the industry as well as the various of ways you can get involved and support these students.

A big thanks to our first partners, IAG, Telstra and PwC as well as the game developers themselves, Blizzard and our global eSports partner ESL, for helping make this a reality.

The 2016 AAGE Conference has been and gone and what a whirlwind of excitement, innovation and learning it was!

aage

GradConnection has attended the AAGE for nine years now and in that time 2016 has been by far the busiest we have seen it. We are yet to receive the final figures but unofficially it seems that this was the most successful conference by attendance in recent years.

So from our experience at the conference, here are GradConnection’s three key points that you should take away from this year’s conference:

  • 1. Innovation and reinvention can bring your program to life

One of the stand out winners from the 2016 Australian Graduate Industry Awards this year was Australia Post, taking home three of the night's awards including Most Popular Graduate Recruitment Video, Most Popular Integrated Marketing Campaign and the Will Spensley Memorial Award for Innovation in the Graduate Market.

Innovation and reinvention were key to the success of Australia Post’s rebranding campaign. Coming from a brand that was considered slow moving and within a declining industry to a cutting edge program that boasts agility and innovation as it’s core values was no small feat. It is a testament to Australia Post that they were able to turn their brand around so quickly and re-establish themselves in the market as an employer of choice. It goes to show that you don’t always need big budgets and endless resources to be able to make real changes happen!

  • 2. Social media is a rising phenomena but is it all it’s cracked up to be?

One of the biggest trends that we as a company have witnessed over the past 12 months is the increasing interest in using social media as a part of your graduate attraction strategy. It was for this reason that we centered our presentation at the AAGE on this topic.

The overarching message with regards to social media is threefold:

  1. Do it right or not at all - Graduates see the amount of effort you put into your social media channels as a reflection of how much effort the company puts into their graduate program. Only posting once a month on Facebook? Students think that the graduate program isn’t valued by the company.
  2. Each social media has a defined purpose - Make sure you use each channel for the correct purpose to generate the most value. Facebook is best used for updating students on information such as key application dates, campus events, profiling graduates while Instagram is more of a cultural branding tool.
  3. Social media will only directly contribute to a small number of applications and hires - While social media is fun and exciting, students are still not finding it a useful source for information about graduate programs. We saw this confirmed through the AAGE Candidate Survey 2016. We see this happen with our own site. GradConnection has 30,000 followers on Facebook but this only contributes to approx 5% of our overall traffic. The majority of our traffic comes from Google and emails.
  • 3. The Australian graduate landscape is improving

If the attendance at the AAGE conference is any indication, the graduate landscape is improving with more vacancies opening up (per employer) and more new employers joining the graduate market. The median vacancies per employer are the highest it’s been in three years and the second highest it’s been in over 10 years.

This is exciting for students with more opportunities for them to explore at the tail end of their academic careers, however with this improvement also comes increased competition for employers. An improving market means that you will have to compete with more employers for top talent, so it’s more important than ever to ensure that your attraction strategy is comprehensive and will work hard for you in bringing in the best pool of candidates for you to then select from.

Those are GradConnection’s top three take away points from the 2016 AAGE conference. If you have any questions regarding the above or the market in general or if you would like a copy of our slides from our presentation on social media at the AAGE please feel free to email me on [email protected].

7 Tips An Undergrad Can Do To Succeed

Posted by Devina Tarin

November 10th, 2016

undergraduate success

For undergraduates who are still studying and those in their penultimate year, to be prepared for your career life or continue on to grad school is important. As a student, the work and activities that you do in university can pay off in your future and lead you to success with the skills that you have acquired. There are a few tips that can help your preparation to succeed in your future, whether it be for your career or future studies.

1. Acquire and Grow Skills

The first thing that comes to mind when it comes to success would be to get enough experience that could land you a job. Being able to find the experiences you need, you are also acquiring and developing your skills. This includes the skills that you may have already had, or find yourself having new skills you didn’t have. Acquire the skills that you may need and develop them to be better. These skills that you acquire are key to your future job prospects and without the skills needed, you may not be able to get the job you wanted.

2. Internships and Volunteering

Use your break time wisely and apply yourself into internships or volunteer work. There are skills that you’re not able to gain on campus, and so internships and volunteer work are able to fill in the skills that you may lack in. This is also a great opportunity to work with others and an inside of what your future work environment could be in your chosen position. It also gives you work experience and tests your knowledge that you’ve learnt and be put into practice.

Internships and volunteer work also help you decide what you’re interested in. You have the opportunity to work in different fields and you may be able to learn more about yourself and discover that you’re really interested in. They also help you build your network of professionals that could guide you and help you in the future.

3. Build Your Network

Building a network and having relationships with various people is a key importance for when you graduate. Your network can help you in your future endeavours and help you transition into your career, whether it be looking for a job, looking for reference, or even just to help and mentor you. 

Being able to nurture your network and creating relationships can also help you connect with more people; you never know when you’re in need of something that someone else may be able to help you with. Your network may include various people and groups that you may have met such as:

  • Classmates, colleagues and even roommates;
  • Peers and co-workers;
  • Professors and supervisors;
  • Campus staff;
  • Organisational partners;
  • Alumni;
  • Club members;
  • And even family and friends

4. Document Your Achievements

It is a good idea to keep note and document all your achievements and accomplishments when you get involved. It allows you to keep track of what you’ve done, including the experience and skills that you may have gained for you to look back at.  

The documents could help recruiters and prospective employers evaluate your work and performance. This way, you’re also able to be more specific in interviews and give examples that could highlight your skills and experience. Your document may include achievements such as:

  • The clubs and campus jobs you’ve done, including your duties and dates;
  • Internships and summer jobs;
  • Scholarships;
  • Events that you may have held and managed;
  • Public speaking engagements;
  • Awards you have won and what they were for;
  • The courses you’ve taken and what you’ve learn;
  • And any published work, etc.

5. Challenge Yourself

Be able to involve yourself and challenge yourself in experiences, responsibilities and activities that you may not be good or familiar with. Tackle your obstacles and the outcome could be surprising. You may discover things about yourself while achieving new skills and even a new interest, while also being able to gain the experience. 

You may even discover your likes and dislikes to set you on a path for your future career that you wouldn’t have explored if you didn’t challenge yourself. Don’t be afraid to explore your field to get the maximum experience and knowledge for yourself.

6. Set Professional Goals

Setting a goal for yourself may help you stay clear on where you want to focus on and your future career. Your professional goals may help you shape your direction in classes, projects, and even the experience you may undertake.

Make sure to look at your resume and your achievements and find if you lack in anything that may be important for your field and future profession. Involve yourself in activities and work that are able to fill those caps and help you move in the right direction to your goal.

7. Do Your Best

The simplest way to put it is to do your best. You might have heard this plenty of times, however, working hard and doing your best allows you to be able to succeed and have an easier transition into your career life or further studies. Doing your best as an undergraduate wouldn’t hurt anyone, and instead be the push that you might need. 

Doing your best doesn’t just mean to get good grades, but it also means to be active and participate on and off campus that could branch out into building your network and acquiring skills and experience that you may have missed out on. Benefits that you are able to find in working hard and being active may include:

  • Possible hires from places that you’ve interned or volunteered in off campus
  • Be able to get good reference from your professors, peers and club leaders. If you do your best, they would be more than happy to give reference.
  • Gaining experience from the various activities that you’ve done. Your achievements and accomplishments are reflected in your resume and is useful for career opportunities and job interviews.
  • Gaining skills and confidence in yourself from your experience that could put you above others in school and jobs

These are the few tips that may be able to help you prepare for your future career. Remember to set your goal and find your way towards your goal while gaining experience, acquiring skills and building your network. Take the opportunity to explore your field and your interests to learn more about yourself and find the professional path that suits you the most.

Launching in January 2017, the new website brings together all the vital elements that make up our GradConnection ecosystem – students, universities and employers

As the end of the year gets closer, so does the launch of our new website - GC5! To date, we’ve had four iterations of the GradConnection website and with the development of GradConnection Campus, the international student job platform, we are long overdue for the next big improvement which is set to launch at the start of 2017, perfectly timed for the busy, new recruitment season.

GC5 is bringing in some long theorised elements which are going to be of benefit to all three parts of our important ecosystem - students, universities and employers. With so much to cover, however, we are only going to take a sneak peek at the university space for now. The university community has given us so much over the last few years, we are pleased to announce that we are now able to give something back. Merging all the great ideas that you have discussed with us at events such as the Top100, industry networking, careers fairs or even at 3am in an underground wine bar.

What the universities need to know

Available to our partnered universities, GC5 has the following features in the works:

  • Your own university profiles - Take ownership of your space on GradConnection where you are able to feature your careers service and all the great things you are doing - from the various ways to help prepare students through to your own events with industry connections.
  • Re-engage with students – Connect with your students on a daily basis. We get asked for help by students for a variety of topics that we just are not equipped to deal with, from general help through to mock assessments. When students are identified as needing help through our employability processing engine, we can redirect and connect them with the right touch points on your careers centre.
  • Employment outcomes - When we identify students who may have got a job our automated processes collect where and then stop all email correspondence. If they do not respond to our online processes, we then call them and close the loop that way. All this valuable data will be available to your careers office and other university stakeholders.
  • Utilise our email database - GradConnection has 200 000 students registered in Australia and as they hunt for jobs our email correspondence, which creates a daily summary, becomes of great value to them as it is full of relevant opportunities which will assist them as they begin their entry into the job market. Have employers on campus? Events? Workshops? Program these into the GradConnection database and have a specific channel to reach your students.
  • Customise our communications - With millions of emails being sent through the GradConnection platform, we can tailor exactly what your students see. Every email sent to your students, beyond events and other updates, can provide strong links back to your careers centre to help them re-engage and discover all the resources you have available to them.

Some of you will have already spoken to us and may have even helped in shaping the site, but if you want to know more and how you can take part, just get in touch: Andrew Purchas ([email protected]) Education and Employment Manager at GradConnection
