What to Expect at a Group Assessment Center

What to Expect at a Group Assessment Center
From Recruiter - October 17, 2016

A group assessment center is a great alternative to the traditional one-on-oneinterview. It allows you tolearn so much more about the role and have the opportunity to demonstrate your skills and abilities rather than just talk about them.

Have you been invited to a group assessment center? Are you unsure what the day will involve? Here are a few insights to help you prepare:

What Should I Expect at a Group Assessment Center?

A whole heap of fun and information!

Okay, maybe I am biased, but I love group assessment centers. They are great for the hiring team because they allow the teamto see how a candidate will act in a role, and they are great for candidates because the candidates get to learn so much more about the company and role than they would have in a traditional interview. Plus, if youre a candidate, you get the chance to meet other candidates, making ita great opportunity to grow your network!

Every assessment center is different. Your sessionmay last an hour or two, or it may even take a full day. If the time frame hasnt been explained yet, ask! If you drive there, make sure you plan ahead for parking so you dont need to pop out to move your car or put more money in the meter.

So, what will the day involve? Generally speaking, at the start of the day, there will be a presentation about the company and role. You will likely have an opportunity to ask questions about the information contained in these presentations. Do not waste that opportunity. Comeprepared with a few different questions to ask, and only ask questions that were not covered by the presentation.
