"The test helped to validate his experience in a way that we couldn’t otherwise assess him since he’s 3000 miles away and we aren’t familiar with the firms where he worked. Your test gets an A+ from our firm!"

"I highly recommend Accountests to any firm looking to improve its hiring process. This resource has been an invaluable asset to our practice for discernment in hiring candidates. The tests provided by the website give us information that we cannot gather from an interview or a resume alone. It is a missing piece of the hiring process that has saved our firm thousands of dollars by preventing a mis-hire."
