SATS in the workplace
— Do you think SAT scores could be a good indicator of future career success? Why or why not? Not at all. They literally have nothing to do with anything in the workplace. They don't show that you're capable of doing anything in the real world. I mean when you get to the work place when are you going to take a four hour test in a pressure filled window? Also once you reach your career you're already well beyond where you were, at your junior and senior year in high school. — If you were on a hiring committee at a workplace, would you consider SAT scores as part of an applicant’s materials? I would consider their college grades, what classes they took, where they went to school, all of that stuff but never their SAT scores. You improve and learn so much through college why should something you did back in high school matter or be able to predict your future. I'm sure 90% of people didn't have a clue what they wanted to do when they grew up at that point in their life. What if a job applicant did not take the SAT? Do you think some employers would penalize that person? How should this situation best be handled, in your opinion? I think they shouldn't but if it was important to them they would. I think the SATS should be used only for college they have no place in the work place.
