An Objective Approach to Talent Selection
Step 3: CHOOSE | Know the Fit
Job fit is one of the most important elements that affect how an employee performs at their job and how engaged they are while doing it. But how do you know you’re choosing the right person? Or maybe you have two great candidates, but aren’t sure who might be the ideal match?
We help you objectively compare candidates against your benchmark to understand if and how they fit the requirements of the job. You can also compare multiple candidates to see who a better fit might be.
The PXT Select™ assessment compares candidate results to the job requirements and provides an overall Job Fit result. The closer the result to the target, the better the fit. With our unique Job Fit feature, PXT Select measures the overall fit to the role across 20 different variables that span Thinking Style, Behavioral Traits, and Interests. This provides unbiased insight across all candidates in the selection process.
Learn how well the candidate matches the preferred verbal and numerical capabilities, including how a person processes information for problem-solving, communication, and learning skills.
Can the candidate understand complex instructions? Can they make decisions based on complex numerical data?
Learn each candidate’s tendencies across nine behavioral traits as a measure for assessing fit.
Does the candidate tend to work at a steady pace, or do they work swiftly?
Learn if a candidate tends to be more cooperative and compliant, or if they prefer independence.
Motivation and Engagement
Learn if the candidate will enjoy the job.
This section of the assessment report helps predict motivation and satisfaction with a given job.
The more their interests align with what the job requires, the more they will enjoy it.
