JOBThoughts® - Rules of the Road

When taking the assessment keep in mind it is presented in two (2) parts.  The first part is what is referred to as the affective portion or your feelings, likes, and emotions.  This part of JOBThoughts® is untimed and produces little stress.  So relax and enjoy this portion.

The second part of the JOBThoughts® assessment focuses on your arithmetical, reasoning, verbal skills, and more.  This portion is timed and you will not finish!  You should do what you can, do not use a calculator - it will slow you down and you will not finish items you may know the answers.

The best advice - relax and enjoy!  If you feel under pressure take the assessment another day.

Your results will be available within 24 hours.  You can print your results as well as return to the site using your personal username and personal password if you need to get another set of results.
