Online aptitude test in graduate recruitment

Hi Kieron, online ability tests in graduate recruitment is very common. Getting on graduate scheme means speeding your career progression at the early stages. In most of the companies after completion of programs you would become part of management team perhaps responsible for managing a small team of employees hence you have to have good aptitude to overcome challenges in such roles. Online ability test don't evaluate all of your competencies nevertheless they evaluate your aptitude to examine numerical data and your decision making skills which form a vital part of managerial abilities.
