Assessing Entry-Level Job Candidates

SelectWrite

Do you need to hire people who can effectively communicate with customers or colleagues by email, web chat, text, and other nonvoice methods? Then SelectWrite can help you. This assessment uses artificial intelligence and a rigorously-developed standardized scoring system to instantly and objectively evaluate a job candidate’s ability to write clearly and effectively.

SelectWrite is very straightforward: Job candidates write a response to one or two prompts, and have 20 minutes to complete each one. That’s it. The advanced scoring system takes it from there, instantly providing you with an overall hiring recommendation and information about six key aspects of their writing:

  • Accuracy and Completeness
  • Purpose and Impact
  • Writing Mechanics and Grammar
  • Vocabulary and Word Choice
  • Business Writing Style
  • Organization

Scoring does not vary, as it does with manually scored tests. The online platform enables onsite and remote testing, and integrates with Taleo® and other applicant tracking software. Please note that data entry/keyboarding speed and accuracy must be evaluated separately.

Entry Level

New entry-level professionals and support staff require specific knowledge, skills, abilities, and personal characteristics to succeed. With the help of our Entry Level employment test, you can identify the best candidates for a wide range of positions, including general administration, customer service, insurance underwriting, and claims.

Each candidate report provides you with an overall rating, as well as separate evaluations of the applicant’s cognitive and soft skills such as:

  • Work commitment
  • Interpersonal skills
  • Adaptability
  • Following policies and procedures

Entry Level can help you deliver bottom-line results in these challenging times. Improved hiring decisions helped one top-five insurance company save more than $1 million in claims processing. Other clients have reduced turnover up to 33%, slashing their hiring, training, and administrative costs. Our assessment experts can help your company reap the rewards of improved hiring.

Assessing Potential Managers
