What’s up with “TESTS” in job interviews? As if job interviews aren’t rough enough, why, for the love of all that is holy, would employers push us job seekers over the edge with tests?

These “tests” come in all shapes and sizes.

Most of them are ridiculous, but, since I don’t universally run hiring for the world, we’ll need to deal with them.

(Feel free to start a petition if you want to see if you and I can completely reform hiring for all mankind.)

I know you want to know what you should do before you take one of these little buggers.

Spoiler alert: Nothing.

Don’t do anything.

As in anything.

As in no thinking. Zip. Zilch. Nada.

Zero brain power dedicated to this.

That’s if the employer wants you to take a personality or aptitude or “fit” test or something of that nature.

If it’s a case study, by all means, knock your socks off.

That’s because those are cool and good predictors for future success.

I pulled today’s clip from one of the 1,478 times I was asked about “tests” during various Live Office Hours sessions.

You get my cheery thoughts on them and a little story about one of my recruitment clients who used them and the expensive dinner she bought me after she lost our bet…

If you'd like to build a great career and lead a rewarding life, check out some of these other places where I share my teachings:

1. Check out the milewalk Academy, my coaching and training site, for freemiums and premiums.

2. I have hundreds of educational and inspirational videos on my YouTube Channel.

3. Grab any of my three books related to interviewing, hiring, and goal setting. All can be found on my Amazon Author Page.

4. Follow me on Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, TikTok, and Facebook.
