Adding a Job Opening and Inviting Candidates

Although the same assessments are used for all Wonderlic Select job openings, scoring and results interpretation are tailored to the requirements for specific job profiles. Wonderlic Select employs our TrueMatch technology to quickly identify and apply the ideal scoring profile for your job title.

TrueMatch uses the Department of Labor’s O*NET database as its foundation. But, we've combined O*NET data, covering just over 1,000 distinct jobs, with information gleaned from over 10 million resumes and LinkedIn profiles to create a truly extensive database of job profiles. Our data scientists have been able to develop an understanding of the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary for over 3.5 million unique jobs.

It takes only a few minutes to create a job opening and send a test invitation.

Creating a Job Opening

To begin, click on “Add Job Opening” on your Wonderlic Select dashboard or job openings page. You'll be prompted to enter the job title. Enter the title, click "Next," and within seconds the optimal scoring profile will be assigned to this job title.

If your job is already a perfect match with O*NET, TrueMatch assigns that job profile. If you enter the name of a job that isn’t cataloged in O*NET, TrueMatch intelligently identifies the similarities and differences between that role and similar jobs - and produces a new and unique job profile automatically.

You can view the details of the cognitive, motivation, and personality requirements we've identified for the opening by clicking "View Details." You can also modify the opening name, location, and hiring manger, add tags* to the opening, and select to provide candidate feedback (recommended) and to follow the opening.

After you have made any desired updates, click "Save" to create the job opening.

Testing Your First Candidate

If you choose to test candidates right away, you're all set! Just navigate to your Job Openings page, find the opening you just created, and click anywhere on the job card.

On the screen that appears, you'll have the option to immediately test a candidate, or you can generate a Quick Apply Link to embed in a job board, your website, or candidate emails. To test a candidate right away, click on the "Test Candidate" button.

Then, you'll be prompted to enter the candidate’s first and last names and email address.

From this screen you'll be able to:

1. Select launch options

  • Email Invitation (Immediately send the candidate an access link.)

  • Onsite Access Code (Receive a code and instructions to test candidates on site.)

  • None (Invite or test the candidate at a later time.)

2. Select specific assessment activities you want your candidate to complete.

  • By default, all assessments are selected.

3. Indicate if the candidate is a non-applicant (Select if the test taker is a current employee experiencing the assessments for demonstration purposes.)
