So I recently applied for the 2015 Graduate placement program (all business areas), and I ace’d the logical and numerical reasoning tests (scored the highest category on PwC’s report). I’d prepared for those tests, but did not think to prepare for the “workstyle” questionnaire, as I thought this was just to get a preference on your habits etc etc.
However, I got an email instantly after doing all 3 tests, and got rejected based on the workstyle test. I scored 2/3 in the "Business Acumen, Whole Leadership and Technical capabilities. However I got 1/3 in the Relationships and Global Acumen sections. 1-3 is a indicator on how well you have that still, with 1 being “partial” alignment.
While taking the workstyle questionnaire, I was quite confused and conflicted on a lot of questions, and I guess I did try to seem like an “ideal” candidate by putting work and success over “people” first, and this may have been the reason for my rejection. I guess next time I’ll have to be a bit more honest and try to answer it how I really feel, but are there any tips for passing this? Seems like quite a silly thing to fail for, and idk how to answer questions which make you choose between people, getting the work done, and pushing yourself (or other hard choices between characteristics).
Any tips/programs to help me prepare would be great!
