Demystifying the Assessment center
In ccoperation with the Talent Management team at CERN.
Many companies are using Increasingly sophisticated evaluation tools in the recruitment process (psychometric tests, structured interviews, situational and case-study exercises, etc.) which may be organized together into an “assessment center,” generally half or even a full-day of activities for candidates.
The workshop will allow you to better understand the prevailing methods and techniques used for assessment centers, and to experience through the interactive parts of the course how to deal with competency-based questioning, and what to expect in the typical group exercises which recruiters tend to choose.
This workshop is free-of-cost and priority is given to students near the end of their studies as well as recent graduates (up to 6 months after graduation). Assuming there is still space available, students from earlier years will also be admitted.
