Graduate Assessment Centres
When our clients have decided they need to recruit a number of graduates at the same time we have worked with them to develop a successful assessment day. No two days are ever the same and as the client it is your choice on how much involvement you want. This can be a cost effective and time effective way of selecting candidates for the same or similar role and creates a real buzz for all involved on the day…. That’s if you get it right!
So what is an assessment centre and what is involved?
It's a series of activities or tasks that are relevant to the job that will assess a candidate’s suitability for the role and for the company.
At The Graduate we have worked with our clients in developing a whole range of activites and key exercises that can assist in the assessment of candidates on the day as well as checking the documentation and activites that are already in place. These activites and excerises would include:
- One on one interviews
- Panel interviews
- in-tray exercises
- Team exercises
- Tests – numerical, proof reading, writing, analysing information
- Physical team assessments and exercises
It is vital that all delegates attending an assessment centre are marked in the same way so you can compare results. The Graduate will either create the matrix for you or assist with creating. You are the client so we work with you until you have the right solution for your campaign.
