The prospect of an assessment day can leave you in a bit of a spin; as you will be meeting lots of new people, taking part in some challenging tasks, while also trying to showcase your best attributes to a potential employer.
Assessment days usually follow a successful initial interview and are viewed as an important part of the recruitment process. The event allows an employer to be able to rate you against certain competencies which are required in the workplace such as communication, team work or leadership skills.
