Employment Technologies helps businesses select only the best candidates for employment – offering the most real-world and immersive assessment experiences possible. Owner-operated by Orlando residents Joseph and Eugenia Sefcik, Employment Technologies was founded in 1995. An unprecedented five-time national Top HR Product of the Year Award recipient, the company provides proven solutions in all phases of the HR process, including job simulations, realistic job previews, employment branding, online interview tools and onboarding guides.

From its first days, Employment Technologies has demonstrated a commitment to the well-being of the company’s employees.
