How to prepare for your assessment

Our goal is to set you up for success at AT&T.

That’s why we’re providing you with the information you need to prepare for the entire application process - in particular, the Hogan Assessment, which measures your behavioral readiness for a position. When you’re getting ready, it’s a good idea to find a quiet place, get in the zone and answer as honestly as possible. And to prevent any errors from happening, make sure you are doing so on a computer and not a mobile device.

If you want to get a better idea of what will be involved, check out our Hogan Assessment Study Guide
