Workable Assessments are used by companies to get a sense of job seekers' skills and personality before making an offer.
If a company that's hiring sends you an assessment you'll receive an email with a link to the Workable Assessment. A complete set of instructions about the test are available at that link. Review these instructions and complete a few example questions before beginning.
Assessments must be completed in one sitting and only an internet-connected device is required. Review our guide on how to prepare for more details. Be sure that you complete the assessment before the deadline cited in the instructions you receive.
Types of assessments
The company that's hiring may send you one or more of the following assessment types.
Discovers your ability to think logically and solve abstract problems.
Questionnaire on the five basic dimensions of personality: extraversion, agreeableness, openness, conscientiousness, and emotional stability.
Attention & Focus
Examines your ability to focus on individual elements to solve problems.
Assesses your ability to analyze arguments and draw conclusions from written statements.
Tests how well you can work with numbers.
All of our cognitive ability assessments are "adaptive". This means that the system adapts to your ability level and selects what questions to administer based on your previous responses and whether they were correct or incorrect.
You begin with a question of average difficulty. If you answer the question right within the time limit, you progress to a more difficult question. If you answer incorrectly or fail to answer within the time limit, the system selects an easier question next. This process is repeated until you reach the end of your test.
As a result of the adaptive nature of the test, don't worry if you feel continuously challenged or consider the questions difficult.
