SHL Aspiring Minds Assessment (formerly known as the IBM Kenexa Employee Assessments) is a web-based assessment program that provides over 1,200 validated tests for clerical, software, call center, legal, financial, healthcare, industrial and technical job classifications. This platform is designed to help employers and recruiters determine if candidates have the required skills for a specific job.
“It has been great to partner with Cathie LeBlanc at MassHire Cape and Islands Career Center to perform the IBM Kenexa Assessments for our administrative positions. Cathie has helped with identifying which assessments to use, either typical or power user, and responds the same day with any requests. This has allowed the MBL [Marine Biological Laboratories] to identify those candidates who have strong Word and Excel skills and make the best hire possible for our organization.” Denice Baker, Sr. Human Resources Generalist, MBL
Why should employers use skills assessments?
To give job candidates an opportunity to prove they can do the job before you hire them.
Why do we offer this as a member benefit?
MassHire Cape and Islands Career Center has subscribed to the skills assessment portion of the SHL Aspiring Minds Assessment portfolio to give their employer members access to top quality Skills Assessment tests.
Is there a cost to the employer?
This service is available at no charge to employer members.
How do I arrange to have a job candidate take a skills test?
Contact Cathie LeBlanc at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
We will follow up with the employer and will send the link to the job candidate so he or she can take the test. If the employer would prefer the candidate to take the test at the company’s facility, a link to the test will be sent at a specific time. We will contact both the employer and job candidate with the test results.
“Convention Data Services [CDS] has greatly benefited from the complimentary IBM Kenexa Assessments service offered by MassHire. As part of our Contact Center hiring process, we can quickly and effectively narrow down applicants to those who meet the skill sets required for these fundamental and customer-focused positions.” Denise Hughes, SHRM-CP, Human Resources Generalist, CDS
