The LinkedIn Web Editors group has been discussing editorial tests, and whether we have taken them ourselves when we are job candidates, or given them to candidates applying for a job for which we are hiring. Editorial tests may include spelling, grammar, editing, HTML, proofreading. We have a poll question below for you, and you can feel free to comment in the comments section here. Another question is – if you administered the editorial test to a group of candidates – did the results influence your decision? If you were the one taking the test, did it influence whether you wanted to work for that company or not?
