Sally advises businesses on their employee life cycle strategies, including recruitment, selection, induction and development. Sally has recorded video tips for answering a range of competency-based interview questions and what to expect from psychometric assessments. Competency-based interviewing is based on the assumption that past performance is the best predictor of future performance. Interviewers want to find out specific examples or evidence of experience you have gained and what you personally did in particular situations and how you resolved any issues.
Sally also advises that psychometric assessments are generally split into two broad types, such as ability and aptitude testing (for which you can often ask for practice questions papers) and personality profiling, where there are no rights or wrongs; no pass or fail. She offers tips on how best to approach them if they come up in an interview.
