“There is one significant difference between those who get a job and those who don’t after being shortlisted. Successful candidates invest in research and understand the nuts and bolts of the recruiting process. They are prepared for each step: they know what to expect from an assessment centre and how to stand out in the interview. They are not surprised by the format of the psychometric tests and by the test’s questions. They researched potential employers and their targeted industries and impress interviewers through their use of a common language. If you try to be successful without help from an expert, you will probably make many mistakes and fail to achieve your goal.
