PROFILE TESTING ! To PROFILE or not to PROFILE, the most asked question and the most misunderstood …………
Ever wondered why someone looked so good on a resume and interviewed so well and didn’t do well on the job? Ever hire a candidate who did not fit into the corporate culture? Ever had 2 equal candidates and didn’t know which one to choose? Ever felt someone was not telling you the truth but you didn’t know why? Ever wondered why a certain personality type functions better than another? Why profiling is necessary?
ALL positions need profiling that interact with your existing employees. Profiles differentiate between good people and excellent people. Profiles give you the ability to hire TOP performers every time. Profiles allow you to manage your staff effectively for optimum performance, both individually and as a group. Profiling of sales personnel can make the difference between a top performer hitting the road running or requiring a long learning curve. What positions need profiling?
Prior to your first face to face interview is the best time to profile the candidates on your short list. Taking the results of the profiles and using the results as a base for some critical questions, allows you to determine if the personality “fits” with the corporate profile, and is able to function within the management style of the department/company. Make profiling part of your hiring and management process every time! WHEN TO PROFILE ?
