About the Market Analysis test

Market analysis examines the interplay of various market factors within a defined market to identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats for particular business decisions. Hiring skilled and effective market research analysts can help position your company as a market leader or maintain your company’s competitive advantage. Creative market analysts can also help you understand how to transform unexpected problems into opportunistic benefits.

This Market Analysis test evaluates candidates’ abilities to apply business concepts to various market scenarios. These scenarios are based on realistic case studies that a market analyst will encounter. This test evaluates candidates’ abilities to gather and process information related to market analysis.

A skilled market research analyst will know how to see the big picture by focusing on key information (and knowing how to find it) instead of getting bogged down in unimportant details. Perhaps more importantly, the hiring test evaluates candidates’ abilities to interpret consumer behavior and psychology. A successful market analyst can put themselves into the consumer’s mind to understand and predict outcomes.

This screening test will help you identify market analysts who translate the skills in the covered areas into results you will witness firsthand in your business.

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.
