Purpose: RA’s Event Planner Test is useful for screening potential employees who will be tasked with planning, organizing and overseeing the successful execution of events and special occasions. This test will help you find detail-minded individuals who can adapt quickly and effectively problem solve while staying calm under pressure – even in the face of the unexpected. The most successful candidates will also be good time managers, able to work alone or collaboratively, and possess the interpersonal skills to interact with internal and external customers.
