Product details

A significant and fast growing trend in both the private and public sector hiring and promotion processes is the use of Personality Tests as a screening device to help employers select those who are hired and/or promoted. These tests require candidates to state their agreement or disagreement with a series of statements designed to identify those candidates with the universal core values possessed by Ideal Employees. However, due to the lack of helpful information surrounding these Personality Tests many otherwise qualified candidates are rejected because they do not understand the process. This misunderstanding often leads them to select inappropriate responses to the statements they are being asked to evaluate and that subsequently results in their not getting the job or promotion for which they are applying.

This publication – "The Ideal Employee, Understanding and Dealing with Personality Tests" – strips away the mystery surrounding Personality Tests. This text guides candidates for entry level and/or promotional positions by helping them understand what the personality traits of Ideal Employees are and how these traits come together to build the core values required of an Ideal Employee. Throughout the text, candidates are provided with exercises that guide them in adopting and adapting these personality traits and core values for themselves in order to get the job or promotion they are seeking. In other words, readers of this book will be guided as to when to agree and when to disagree with Personality Test statements.
