2.Pros and cons of using virtual assessment for employee selection
National City uses a computerized simulation of specific job-related tasks known as “Virtual Job Tryout” to select candidates for jobs. In effect, job candidates get to audition for the job they
want. The company believes that this type of assessment does more than help the company select the right people. The process also gives National City Corporation a distinctive recruiting experience
that creates a unique impression on applicants and helps build the employer brand of the company.
National City worked with a consulting firm to develop several virtual simulations. The simulations have audio and video interactivity and are quite appealing to younger job applicants such as Gen
Y’ers. Call center applicants, for instance, are given scenarios requiring them to solve customer service problems. Branch manager applicants have to demonstrate their skills at developing client
relationships and making quick personnel decisions. Of course, these online assessments are just part of the overall selection process, but they are the next step in getting hired after completing
the application process.
The firm believes that this part of its selection process is an educational tool that helps potential employees learn about the company. According to one of the consultants involved in the
development of the simulation, innovative companies are looking for unique experiences such as this one to make their selection process stand out.
