Graduate Assessment Process

We recognize your hidden talent and help you unleash your potential.

Kickstart your career following graduation

When it comes to your graduate career, we aren’t your standard recruitment agency. We take a unique approach to sourcing, assessing, and placing our graduates, helping them to kickstart their careers. We specialize in sales roles, finding talented graduates for many clients including Oracle, Adobe, and Blackberry. 

Our Assessment Process


Found a sales role that captures your interest? Apply and send us your resume.


We stage a competency-based telephone interview with a member of our expert Graduate Management Team.


If you move forward following your telephone interview, we'll invite you to one of our many assessment days to further evaluate your potential.


We don't just place you into just any job. Our goal is to understand and match you to the opportunity that is the best fit for YOU.


What makes Pareto so unique? We don't just place you and hang you out to dry. We provide 128 hours of free training & development so you have the tools for success.

Beyond the credentials.

Our key selling point is that we go further when it comes to discovering your sales potential. We don’t believe in using a graduate’s resumes as the sole basis for determining their worth. That’s why we offer a comprehensive screening and assessment process, using competency-based methods to gain the full picture of your sales potential. We match those competencies to our clients and their roles.

Taking you further.

When it comes to taking your career further, we’re in it for the long run, supporting and mentoring you every step of the way. Our free 15 days of training and development equip you with all the fundamental skills you require to hit the ground running in your graduate sales career.

The Assessment Day

What is an Assessment Day?

An assessment day is our unique approach to recruiting candidates for a job role. The goal is to match the right candidate to the right position. What makes assessment days unique, is that they go much further than an interview alone. Using many methods to seek out skills and competencies, they offer the employer a chance to see how compatible you are with their company and role. We urge candidates to use the day to show what you’re made of!

The Pareto Assessment Day

We welcome thousands of graduates every year to our assessment days. Our assessment days typically come under one of two different categories:

  • Open assessment days: held at either our New York office or on Zoom, our open assessment days welcome both candidates who have applied for specific positions and those simply looking to enter the world of sales.
  • Client assessment days: These assessment days are tailored to a specific company that is usually looking for several graduates to join an existing sales team. 

Ran by our team of experienced Graduate Managers and Recruitment Specialists, no two assessment days are ever the same. We identify those core competencies and skills that will help you become successful in the world of sales.
