Choosing between the human interviews or written tests has long been a subject of debate amongst the HR Professionals. In my opinion, both are interrelated and interdependent. It is quite difficult to give preference to one system while putting other on the back because I myself have found both the options suitable in judging men and women of abilities depending on the situation. This piece is an endeavor to give readers an insight on both the methods and readers will decide which one they want to opt. It depends largely upon the Nature of the Job - The decision of whether to take tests or conduct interviews depends solely upon the nature of the job. In case a company tends to hire a grocery clerk, the test may be a feasible option as it is most relevant to the requirements of the job. On the other hand, for some strategic level job i.e. hiring some International Relation officer, companies conduct interviews, as tests are not the right option to test the skill level of such candidates.
