At some point in your career, you’ll probably be required to take an assessment, especially if you are interviewing for a position or moving into a new role.
- Behavioral assessment responses describe how a person might “show up” in the workplace and whether they are a good fit for the job’s requirements. For example, introvert/extrovert, fast/steady, rule follower/risk taker. DISC, Myers-Briggs, and Predictive Index evaluations are a few examples.
- Emotional intelligence assessments demonstrate self-perception, self-expression, decision-making, stress management, and interpersonal skills.
- 360-degree evaluations gather feedback from various perspectives – peers, direct reports, and supervisors
- The cognitive assessment determines how quickly a person can learn (if change is constant in the workplace, rapid learning is essential).
Understanding these assessments aids in hiring decisions and employee evaluation, so just be yourself. Don’t let valuable career opportunities slip away. Connect with Job Seekers’ Edge and discover how assessments and evaluations can give you the competitive edge you need!
