Interview process before using a pre-employment testThe hiring process is unquestionably one of the most difficult responsibilities of any business—no matter the industry or role. Whether you are the owner, human resource manager, or supervisor, sorting through resumes, reviewing applications, and conducting interviews, can all be overwhelming and ineffective. You do, of course, put forth the effort to make this process as efficient as possible, but it can still be unclear which applicants are the right choice. This is especially true at the entry level, where experience and industry knowledge is limited amongst candidates. At Nocti Business Solutions (NBS), we have considered this shared challenge and designed a pre-employment test made for any industry or job position: 21st Century Skills for Workplace Success.
