personality test for employment


However, personality tests are just the beginning of the benefits that online

testing can offer. In addition to personality tests, companies can also perform

online simulations of the actual job to see how the candidate in question can

handle the responsibilities of the job. Using job simulation testing in the hiring

process can provide additional perspectives on the candidate in question, as

well as help recruiters use a data-driven approach to discover better


“Web-based employee screening and selection assessments…are an

increasingly popular option for more companies.”

the Tribune brings up several great

points on the benefits of personality

testing. By using personality tests at

the beginning of the hiring process,

human resource teams can use

statistical feedback to determine who

should move forward in the process,

as well as what questions they should

focus in on during the face-to-face


And, because data is being used to determine who to interview, the entire

process is sped up since under-qualified candidates can be identified through

personality testing data and exited prior to meeting with a recruiter.

the benefit speaks for itself better candidates

The benefit speaks for itself: better candidates, better interviewing questions

and a quicker hiring process, all with hard data to back it up.

In addition to providing tangible feedback on prospective candidates,

personality testing also benefits follows up interviews by giving the

interviewer an idea of what areas they should focus in on with questioning. So,

if a candidate scores low in a certain area, the follow up interview could be

focused on why that candidate may have scored low, giving the candidate a

chance to discuss where they went wrong and possibly reconcile the score.

Additionally, the hard data provides groundwork for newer hiring managers,

giving them a sense of what to look for in candidates much earlier in their


“When companies avoid using online assessments, it’s often because they

aren’t closely enough aligned with the job being filled.”

As beneficial as personality testing is, however, it's merely one dimension of a

multi-dimensional candidate. Gaining a more holistic view of the candidate

requires evaluating against more than one aspect of the job, while still

achieving quantifiable data to determine what type of employee the candidate

will be, and how well they'll be able to perform the responsibilities of the job.

This is where the importance of job simulations comes into play.

With job simulations, a company is able to provide job like scenarios that the

employee might face, with the candidate able to complete each scenario and

see if they meet the job requirements.

Job simulations can be applied to multiple roles - from call center agents, to

field services, sales, and retail as well - and shows whether or not a candidate

can use their demonstrated personality traits into the job's demands. Now,

you're not only achieving qualitative data for their personality, but also their

ability to perform the job at hand.

using personality tests and job simulations

Using personality tests and job simulations in harmony with one another can

result in bringing in the best talent possible and ensuring that new employees

will quickly adapt to their roles, while weeding out any candidates who may

have the motivational fit, but not the ability to handle the job.

simulation in the hiring process below. For more blog posts about hiring,
