IT graduate recruitment: Matching skills with jobs

There’s never such thing as an un-busy week in the world of IT recruitment, but the last seven days at Jumar have seen more than their fair share of bustle.

One of the reasons for this has been the staging of an intensive IT graduate assessment day to put a series of graduates through their paces, to provide a major  employer with a pre-assessed set of interviewees for their next graduate intake.  Read more below – or join our recruitment manager, Denis Bayliss in the world of YouTube..

As part of the service, we consider the use of physchometric tests to be invaluable in allowing us to assess the ‘whole’ candidate.  We use the Thomas General Intelligence Assessment test during these events, but we have access to a range of similar assessments for other scenarios.  The feedback from the Thomas profiling is then combined with a host of other data which we measure by assessing

  • team-building exercises
  • communication tests
  • technical tests
  • problem solving tests
  • group activities

and many other aspects of a candidate’s aptitude and ‘fit’ for a particular IT role.  We then collate this mass of information and perform comparisons against our client’s person specification.  The resultant ‘suitability analysis’ is then used to present the client with a comprehensive summary of the available talent.

We have a number of these events taking place over coming months, which we hold either at our premises or at a suitable external venue.

It means that our clients can save money, time and frustration – and be presented with a pre-filtered group of quality candidates for their upcoming vacancy – or vacancies.
