Below is a list of general skills that will help anyone get ahead in practically any field, from running a company to running a gardening club. 1. The ability to speak clearly, persuasively, and forcefully in front of an audience – whether an audience of 1 or of thousands – is one of the most important skills anyone can develop. 2. Writing well offers many of the same advantages that speaking well offers: good writers are better at selling products, ideas, and themselves than poor writers. 3. If success depends on effective action, effective action depends on the ability to focus your attention where it is needed most, when it is needed most. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. What Else?

Deloitte SHL Numerical & Verbal Aptitude Test Information Deloitte are one of the biggest and most well known companies in the world, being part of the accounting "big four". Year-on-year they have a high volume intake of graduates, and also employ many management level staff in offices throughout the UK and the wider world. How Do Deloitte Use Aptitude Tests? Unlike other employers Deloitte do not use aptitude tests as the initial barometer for candidates. According to various past candidates, it takes anywhere between a few minutes to a couple of days to get the results of your numerical test from Deloitte to see if you will move onto the verbal test. The assessment centre could involve an e-tray test, which whilst not one of the traditional aptitude tests still falls under the test category so it is worth getting in some e-tray practice if you make it past the initial round of tests and are invited to an assessment. Who Produces Deloittes Aptitude Tests? Deloitte uses the SHL system of tests rather than PSL or any of their other competitors.

ASK: How long have you been recruiting? WHY? ASK: How much have you seen the industry change over that time? WHY? RESEARCH: How many endorsements do they have on LinkedIn? WHY? ASK: How long have you been recruiting for my role? WHY? ASK: How pivotal is the role in the overall company scheme? WHY? ASK: What was the last great achievement made here? WHY? These are just a few questions and the methods behind the madness. -Jim
