Help for Jobseekers
Psychometric testing is now a fundamental part of recruitment. Even so, every day more companies are integrating it as part of their process in getting the right people for the job. Executives Recycled is now offering you the chance to create your own behavioural profile.
A psychometric profile can be an excellent addition to your CV. Employers will get a better understanding about what makes you tick and how you behave. You will also understand what information an employer will be looking at if you are asked to complete a psychometric test as part of an application.
There are many forms of psychometric analysis. Executives Recycled uses the internationally recognised DISC version.
DISC measures four factors of an individual's behaviour: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance. They can be characterised as assertiveness, communication, patience and structure.DISC also interprets the relationships between these factors. For example, a highly Dominant person with a high level of Influence will behave quite differently to an equally Dominant individual with a low level of Influence. The factors combine like this to generate (theoretically) around one million different profiles.
Using this information, DISC can be used to describe a person's general working style, their motivations and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, and some of the basic assumptions they make about other people. It can also go far in helping to predict how a person will react or perform in various circumstances.
However, don't take our word for it. As you can see from the following quote, psychometric testing is fast becoming an integral part of the recruitment process.
