Passing The Online Application Personality Test

While the job market is in such a crisis and everyone is searching for a job, getting hired can be a little tricky now a days. Applications are most commonly filed online now and then there is a personality test

While the job market is in such a crisis and everyone is searching for a job, getting hired can be a little tricky now a days. Applications are most commonly filed online now and then there is a personality test that must be taken.  The idea of choosing a good employee from a questionnaire and no personal interaction seems absurd to most, but the corporate offices deem this is a cost effective way of doing business.  The personality test will often say there is no right answer,  this is false as the answers to these questions will help them decide whether they want you for employment.

The first thing to remember is that you need to figure out what the questions are really asking and what your answer is really telling the people you wish to work for.  If they ask you if you know people who steal does that mean you condone stealing or that you are simply being honest, almost everyone has a friend that has stolen something at some point in their life.

Things most employers are looking for:

Honesty

Punctuality

Reliability

Decision makers

Being able to work on your own

Able to follow directions

Courteous and friendly

Clean and neat appearance

The tests that are provided will often give you a variety of degree's in which you can agree or disagree with the question they ask.  If they ask if you are ever late for work, you may answer never, but you don't know for sure if they will take that as an honest answer or if you are simply telling them what they want to hear.  Many of these questions will be asked in a variety of ways in order to make sure that you are sincerely as you say you are.  Because these questions that mean to the same thing to corporate are presented so differently in the question, the average person may answer with a contradictory answer.

Make sure that you read each question carefully and read the entire question, this will help you avoid sending conflicting answers. Employers are looking for people that are willing to grow and move a head with the changes.  Being willing to take some extra classes and advance your education in the fields you desire to work in will be a plus on your resume.  If you are not using a resume make sure that your work history and your accomplishments are defined clearly.
