As a job seeker, you’re constantly being assessed. It doesn’t matter whether you’re in an interview or meeting someone new in an informal setting–when you identify yourself as someone who is looking for a job, people start sizing you up. The problem is that most people (even the ones who make hiring decisions) aren’t all that great at parsing the information that you give them. It’s almost comforting to be evaluated in a more formal process (like school). That’s what PeopleAnswers offers employers. They’re a Dallas, TX based company that has developed a “web-based assessment tool [based on] proven and validated Industrial Psychology principles to extract the Behavioral DNA® from both job applicants and existing employees to provide an unprecedented level of insight into their future on-the-job capabilities.”
I know that it’s hard to get excited about assessments when you’re the one who is being assessed, but PeopleAnswers claims some pretty amazing business results. We’re talking 39% turnover reduction, 21% sales increases, and new hires performing 62% better than their peers who came through other channels. You can see the full case studies here, and keep in mind that we’re talking major companies like Volkswagen, Panera, Macy’s, Hertz, and Discover. The combination of social science/organizational psychology and software seems to be paying off big time for PeopleAnswers’ clients. If you don’t mind being assessed by the company that created the assessment software that many employers use, check out PeopleAnswers’ Careers page. Right now the best job for a new or recent grad is Inside Sales Representative, but you may also want to take a look at Associate Client Account Manager, Data Analyst, SQL Server Database Administrator, and Support Specialist.
