How do you prepare for psychological testing?

You cannot fully prepare for this part, as these tests are based on the fact that you are not familiar with the test tasks and the information contained therein, and that you have never seen them prior to taking the test.

Notwithstanding, you can influence certain aspects of the situation:

  • Get a good night’s sleep and come to the test refreshed
  • Don’t be late!
  • If you are taking the test online, make sure it is done in a peaceful environment for maximum concentration
  • Before you begin taking the test, read the instructions carefully
  • Answer the questions in accordance with the instructions given
  • Listen to the examiner carefully and if you have any questions, ask them
  • The tests are time limited, so be mindful of the remaining time

Still, we cherish diversity, and value motivation, so be sure to pay particular attention to your answer to the question, what makes you stand out from other candidates for the same job, and clearly explain your motivation to work at our company.

    • Questions from our candidates are always welcomed! Take this opportunity to find out what you are really interested in, but were unable to find out from your research of our company.
