How the test works

Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

I joined this company two months ago. I must say that from my first day, everyone has been extremely welcoming. I'd like to thank Serge in particular, who took the time to answer my questions, which allowed me to very quickly find my place within the team. In this trusting atmosphere, I've been able to show what I'm capable of doing while soaking up the company's culture. I've actively contributed to the projects that were assigned to me, and I've fulfilled all my objectives while respecting deadlines. I hope to keep on improving within your company.

I'll be right with you...
