About the Executive Assistant test

Being able to prioritize your focus on mission-critical priorities can seem like a luxury nowadays. There are too many deliverables and not enough hours in the day to accomplish them all.

An executive assistant is a key player on the executive’s team. Not only do they solve problems and manage important administrative deliverables, but they also give the executive back the precious time that otherwise would be taken from leading and managing their business or clients. The executive assistant has the potential to act as a true business partner to the executive. Having the right executive assistant can be an invaluable asset for your business.

The Executive Assistant test evaluates candidates’ abilities to solve problems accurately and efficiently, manage their time and tasks effectively, and communicate effortlessly through myriad situations and mediums.

Candidates who perform well on this test have a self-sufficient attitude that allows them to proactively address problems and determine the best solutions to deploy. They can manage their time and tasks without creating additional work and do it effectively. These candidates understand the power of communication and how to wield it successfully to represent and propel a business entity forward.

Review from G2

Any tool can have functions—bells and whistles. Not every tool comes armed with staff passionate about making the user experience positive.

The TestGorilla team only offers useful insights to user challenges, they engage in conversation.

For instance, I recently asked a question about a Python test I intended to implement. Instead of receiving “oh, that test would work perfectly for your solution,” or, “at this time we’re thinking about implementing a solution that may or may not…” I received a direct and straightforward answer with additional thoughts to help shape the solution.

I hope that TestGorilla realizes the value proposition in their work is not only the platform but the type of support that’s provided.

For a bit of context—I am a diversity recruiter trying to create a platform that removes bias from the hiring process and encourages the discovery of new and unseen talent.
