beyond the resume

Highlight your soft skills mastery with
the Vendition Success Aptitude Test.

You know you’re the exact person the company is looking for, if they would only interview you. So how do you stand out from the crowd? By going beyond the resume with Vendition.

With the Vendition Success Aptitude Test (VSAT) and the propriety Candidate Platform as part of your application process with Vendition, you are able to give companies the full story on who you are and why you’re the person they want to hire for their open sales position.

Built on university-led research coupled with Vendition’s years of experience, the Vendition Success Aptitude Test (VSAT) assesses your specific makeup of social, emotional, and behavioral skills – aka soft skills.

Soft skills are attributes that enable you to interact effectively and amicably with other people in the workplace. They are essential to professional success and are highly desired by employers, but understanding what soft skills are your strengths can be difficult for them to judge.
After completing the VSAT, your unique soft skills profile is displayed to Vendition’s hiring partners, along with your full application, which allows them to see if your combination of skills is a match for their specific sales role. For example, one company’s role may require a high level of independence, but the same role at a different company may need someone who is stronger in time management and organization. Just as you want your skills to be a great fit for a role so you’re successful, so too do the companies who partner with Vendition.
