Pre-Employment Testing Services

Evaluate Your Candidate

UBC Hiring Solutions (formerly Staff Finders) can provide you with the necessary tests to help you in your decision making when you need to evaluate a candidate. You can choose to have the tests done at your convenience in your own office or, you can choose to let us do them for you. In both situations, we e-mail test results about an hour after the candidate finishes the tests.

The company we use

UBC Hiring Solutions uses the services of a company called eSkill. The tests are done using an on-line platform. The candidates are guided through each step by the program.

Available tests

Please view List of Available Tests.  Please contact Maria Salim  if you’d like assistance in selecting tests.

Interpretation of test results – The test results provide you detailed analysis of the results. Most tests evaluate a candidate’s skill at Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced level and provide you with an average score of the three levels combined. The interpretation of the results should be based on what your needs are (e.g. the position level that you are testing for).
