Prove It!

Managing a profitable organization begins with hiring the right people. It is critical to properly assess candidates to ensure that they have the knowledge and skills needed to perform the job. An interview process and reference checks, however extensive, do not tell the whole story about a candidate’s abilities.

How, then, can a hiring manager be sure that a candidate is truly able to execute the tasks that are required for success on the job? Answer: Pre-employment Assessment Technology.

Frederick County Workforce Services recently acquired the rights to administer an award-winning assessment system called Prove It!, which includes over 1,000 validated skills and behavioral assessments for positions including but not limited to financial, legal, clerical, technical, customer service, medical, industrial and more.

Developed by Kenexa, a leading provider of Human Capital Management, the Prove It! system helps organizations to make better hiring decisions, ultimately saving employers time and money.
