IQ tests in one form or another are still very common for employment in the US today.

In which industries? I've never had to take one unless you count the ASVAB.

Every decent consultancy (big 3, big 4), government jobs, international organisations, multinationals, they all use tests derived from IQ testing. Some use multiple. Middle management positions at plenty different companies also require timed cognitive testing. Number & figure sequences, deduction/induction, verbal reasoning, basic math & algebra etc.

At some companies new graduates are subjected to at least 2 cognitive assessments (1 up front, 1 in person), a group assignment, 3 rounds of interviews and a case study + writing proficiency tests. Maybe language testing as well. That's more or less what you can expect if you apply for foreign service or mckinsey or (management) traineeships with banks & big tech or industry players etc.

Of course this is only possible because of the fact that these companies find themselves comfortably swamped with tens if not hundreds of applicants for every vacancy. If you're specialised in a field in which there's more demand than applicants, you can generally escape this stressful experience. It's increasingly becoming the norm for everyone else. Testing standards are based on scores of current employees and new candidates are expected to score at least average though usually higher.
