Prepare to Get Hired.

Aptitude tests are widely used by companies to help make hiring decisions. While pre-employment exams aren’t fun, getting ready for them can be. Hit the mental gym with JobFlare and prime your mind for aptitude testing.

How to Pass An Aptitude Test

1. Find somewhere distraction free.

Somewhere quiet with stable internet connection. You don’t want to be disrupted during the test.

2. Warm up your brain.

This is the main benefit of the JobFlare app for test takers! Just like doing stretches before an intense workout, JobFlare brain games exercise your math, critical thinking, and verbal skills before the main event. After playing, you’re warmed up and ready to go!

3. Have some scrap paper.

Especially for the math questions, quickly jotting out the problem will help you arrive at the right answer.

4. Answer what you know.

Play to your strengths – if you know you’ve got really strong math skills and you’re likely to answer those correctly, it’s okay to spend a few extra seconds working it out, versus wasting a lot of time on a question you know you’ll sink a lot of time into.

5. If you don’t know something, that’s okay!

Eliminate the obviously incorrect answers and make an educated guess – then move on. It’s in your best interest to answer as many questions as you can.

6. Relax. 

It can be difficult not to worry about a test like this but remember that getting too stressed will hinder your performance.
