The Talent Gear team is here to help you get the most from your pre-hire assessments. That starts with getting familiar with your new Profiles Assessment Center (PAC) admin tool.
You should have received an email once your PAC account was created with some step-by-step instructions for how to get started. It usually arrives within one business day of your assessment purchase. If you're still waiting on that, contact us for help.
A note about Distortion
When taking the assessment, some candidates may answer in a way that is socially desirable or that makes them look better, rather than respond candidly and risk disapproval. In other words, they may “distort” their responses.
