A personality test for employment is a valuable tool that allows you to gain insight into the character traits and behaviors of job candidates. For instance, using a professionally developed personality test for hiring can help you identify whether a candidate is introverted or extroverted, patient or impatient, etc.
An employee personality test can help you spot character traits you’ve identified as being important for a particular job. If you need someone who’s detail-oriented for an accounting job, you can use an employee personality test to find candidates with that trait.
Finding the right employees is a daunting task. A resume, cover letter or even an aptitude or skills test will only tell you so much. That’s why the job interview process is key. But which questions will reveal whether a candidate will succeed in your unique work situation?
The Hire Success® Personality Profile is the most advanced personality profile tool on the market. It not only identifies candidates’ personality traits but also teases out the nuances within those traits. Even better, it suggests job interview questions tailored to each candidate — along with the answers you should receive. Unlike any other new-hire personality test, the Hire Success® Personality Profile gives you the confidence you need to conduct structured, objective, in-depth job interviews that lead to better hiring decisions.
The Hire Success® hiring personality test is unlike any other, helping hiring managers make rock-solid decisions since 1999. It paints a detailed picture of your candidates and gives you the tools to turn that analysis into actionable hiring steps. That means:
