In the example for the candidate who is being interviewed for an accounting position, testing should begin with QuickBooks and other accounting programs, typing tests to evaluate speed as well as accuracy. The candidate should also be tested in Microsoft Office since these programs are used in almost every business office – especially MS Word.The operating systems that every candidate should know and be skill tested in are the ones that are wide-ranging among all industries with MS Windows being the one most used.
