I believe that employers can find that assessment tests are useful tools to help in the search for certain abilities, skills, and their overall traits as well as drive for success. The assessment test could be used by employers to better choose candidates for certain positions for their company. I don’t think should be the only way that employers do their hiring but it could be an added part of the hiring packet just to see how beneficial a candidate is. I think this test would also be good for current employees who are possibly trying to move up in the company.

I still think the test is a great way to help people where they are on the road to success but it should not be relied upon for any main reason....
