Assessments / Skills Testing

Testing Skills and Personality Match

One of the first questions prospective clients ask is “what makes your firm different?”


In addition to our 30 years of recruiting experience, consultative approach, and dedication to 100% client satisfaction, our clients value the tremendous amount of time and expense we spend utilizing behavioral assessments to determine which candidate(s) will be a strong “fit” for a particular position.

In addition to utilizing the traditional methods of screening skills testing, we also analyze a candidate’s particular behavioral work-style.  Our experience in this field is based on our successful strategic alliance with Target Training International. At Murray Resources we focus on skills, as well as personal and knowledge assessment tools.

Our most commonly used assessments are:

Work Environment

Successful job performance is often directly related to accurately matching a person’s natural behavior with the behavior demanded by a specific job. Our assessments explore the question of “If the job could talk, what behavioral characteristics would it ask for?” When a candidate’s behavioral style match that of the job, the result is a better fit and successful placement.

Interviewing Insights

This assessment allows employers to compare a candidate’s behavorial style to the work environment report. It reduces the likelihood that the candidate can mask behavior just to get the job.

Skills Testing

At Murray Resources, we test our candidates to ensure they have the right skills to meet your request. We have over 900 skills assessments to help us identify qualified candidates.
