Why use typing tests?

It’s simple! Most jobs today require typing skills, although the modern day description might be keyboarding skills.

It may not seem like a big deal to employers, but the “hunt and peck” method of typing or some other variation used by many employees might be impeding productivity, accuracy, and quality. The fact is that the typing class your employee or job candidate blew off in school could be paying big dividends. Don’t believe me? Consider this; computers are a large part of our lives today, more than ever before. Most jobs require at least the most basic computer skills, even jobs that never did before in manufacturing, transportation, and construction.

More and more employers are looking at typing tests as a prerequisite for the job. Adding an employee typing test to your pre-screening or employee test process may put you ahead of your competition when productivity and quality are differentiating factors.

Here is a list of just a few jobs where testing typing skills helps:

  • Office and Clerical (at least 35-40wpm)
  • Administrative and Executive Assistants (at least 35-40wpm)
  • Legal Secretary (60+wpm)
  • Computer Coders (60+wpm)
  • Data Entry Clerk (75wpm)
  • Medical Transcriptionists (90+wpm)
  • Stenographer (up to 200wpm)

Even managers, salespeople, accountants, engineers and a whole host of other jobs require typing skills, which is why many employers should be using an employee typing test.
