I have an interview this week with a jewelry manufacturing company
and it includes a half hour dexterity exam. Does anyone have any
tips to offer about this process? What should I expect? I've never
experienced anything like this and am a bit nervous.
Wow! I want to take one! It would be a hoot. I'd probably spend half
the test assuming the 'jeweler's position'. Hands and knees on the
floor, butt in the air - looking for for the stuff i keep dropping.
I'm looking forward to hearing from others who have taken dexterity
exams. I'd imagine they aren't too bad. I think tests like those are
aimed at evaluating hand/eye coordination and finding out if there
are any major issues.
Don't forget to breath- many of us tend to hold our breath when
we're concentrating, and that starves the muscles of oxygen, causing
the neck and shoulder muscles to stiffen up. In my case, a few cycles
of holding my breath while working, util I gasp for air also makes me
a bit- ok, a bit stupid. So if you find yourself holding your breath
and getting stressed, sit up straight, take a deep breath in through
your nose, and out through you mouth, repeat a couple of times, and
you'll get back to your task calmer and not so tensed up and
We'll be rooting for you Tracey!
Wishing you the best,
