Employability Test

Welcome to your Employability Test

All job seekers have some level of education or training, skills and experience, aptitudes and interests and abilities, but it is attitude, motivation, and personality that permit us to obtain and retain employment. The employability checklist below allows you to evaluate your own perceptions of your attitude, behavior, skills, and abilities in light of potential perceptions which could be made by interviewers. Think about these before going to an interview and review your responses after the interview. Try to keep them in mind before beginning your workday and during difficult situations on the job.
