  9. 9. Confidential Placement Report Sally Sample Considerations for Interviewing The darker shading represents the Job Match Pattern for the role of Demonstration Pattern-NOT FOR ACTUAL USE. Ms. Sally scored outside the Job Match Pattern in the areas listed below. Information and interview questions are provided to facilitate the selection process. Tact – Tendency to state a position without unnecessarily offending others 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Pattern 6-9 Score 3 Considerations for Interviewing With a relatively low result on the Tact scale, Ms. Sally scores outside of the Job Match Pattern for this position. Her willingness to adjust his behavior through training should be determined. Since the score is in the lower mid-range, it is possible that only some adjustment is required and her readiness for training may be determined by interview questions. A few typical questions may include: • When a customer requires a delicate touch, so to speak, what methods do you usually employ? Would learning some new competencies be of interest to you? • Provide a recent example of your skill at dealing diplomatically with a customer. How do you feel about this kind of mannerism, and what skills would you like to develop to improve in this area? Focus – Tendency to stay on target regardless of distractions 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Pattern 6-8 Score 10 Considerations for Interviewing Sally has scored above the Job Match Pattern for this position. Determining the intensity of her concentration may be helpful. Whether she can redirect herself when required is of importance in these interview questions. A few typical questions may include: • Describe for me a previous experience in which you successfully redirected your attention from one priority to another due to the practical needs of the moment. • How would you describe your level of focus and concentration? What improvements would you pursue to enhance your performance in this area?

  10. 10. Confidential Placement Report Sally Sample Flexibility – Tendency to explore new approaches to doing things 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Pattern 5-7 Score 10 Considerations for Interviewing Ms. Sally has accomplished a score quite high on the Flexibility scale. This score is above the Job Match Pattern for this position. Interviewing may need to emphasize her willingness to avert her tendency to change her methods simply for the sake of doing so. Some accommodation to the procedures of the workplace is likely to be required, so determining her readiness to do so could be revealed by her responses to interview questions. A few typical questions may include: • What use does a procedure have if it’s outdated? Give an example of how you have dealt with such a problem recently. • Tell me about a recent situation in which you went along with the procedures required for the job, despite the fact that there was probably a better and easier way to reach an objective.
