Graduate selection

Graduate selection is all about identifying and assessing the skills and attributes that your organisation needs - quickly and easily, whilst ensuring a positive user experience.  

Graduate selection focuses on the reasoning abilities, personality or competency characteristics, the judgement and the fit with the recruiting organisation of graduate applicants. Many companies deploy initial online assessment in the early stages of selection to help them focus on the right people for their organisation and also include a job preview element in their process.

cut-e helps you to understand what you are looking for and then creates a series of tests taken from our portfolio to identify those who have the right abilities and skills, are able to learn or train, who will fit culturally with the organisation and who have the personality and attitude to succeed in your business. The more information you have in the early stages of application, the sooner you can make decisions, focus on the right people and hire them for your business. Even those you don't select need to take away a positive perception of their interaction with you.
