Assessments overview


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.
