Skills Tests for:

Microsoft Office

HighMatch offers a suite of Microsoft Office skills tests for the most popular MS Office applications, built from the ground up for mobile to deliver the best possible candidate and recruiter experience.

The HighMatch Difference

There are a number of vendors offering hard skills testing for Microsoft Office applications.  What makes HighMatch’s solution unique is it’s fast, accessible and fully customizable, from scoring to messaging to overall length, and it is built specifically for mobile, with SMS invitations and assessments which can be taken entirely on a mobile device.

Why That Matters

Adding a long, generic skills test that can only be taken on a laptop or desktop to the hiring process can lead to qualified candidates dropping out of your funnel.  In tight job markets, that’s simply not an option. 

Our Microsoft Office skill tests are also fully ADA/WGAC-2 compliant, so you ensure your hiring process is accessible to all potential candidates.
