Pre-Employment Testing

56% of employers now conduct pre-employment testing, up over 40% from 2009.

You have heard about them.  You are asked those “Tell me about a time when …” questions.

Perhaps you may hear about a test you will be taking and it’s not just the “drug test” anymore.

Do you know what to do?  What will it be like?  How can you prepare?  How will I know the correct answers?  What are they trying to learn?  Can I “game” these tests?

Would you like some expert insight?  We have some for you.


We are delighted to present Dr. Lou Gamble at our November meeting.  "Dr. Lou", a recognized expert in this area, will discuss Behavioral Interviewing and Psych Testing.
