The use of personality profiling is increasing. The purpose of psychometric testing, sometimes known as personality profiling, is to enable companies to find the most suitable employees to best fit within their organisation. If you use this resource to access the information that will be revealed by psychometric testing, you can turn it to your advantage.
Identify your strengths
CV Writing Services has partnered with Ad Astra Partnership to provide candidates with an opportunity to use psychometric testing to have their own personality profile prepared. By identifying your strengths and weaknesses this can be of significant help in personal development, career planning and preparing for interviews.
The most important use of a psychometric testing report is to give you an objective view, enabling you to gain a deeper understanding of your personality. You can then identify where your strengths and weaknesses lie and your best fit in the job market.
Not for inclusion in your CV
It is not a good idea to use psychometric testing so that you can include information about your personality in your CV. This type of information in a CV would usually be regarded as being purely a matter of opinion and would therefore carry no weight with a prospective employer.
You can even be provided with a list of interview questions that may cause you problems specifically because of your personality. You will receive expert advice on how to handle them. The issues raised will be those you are less comfortable with, so that you can be forewarned and be better prepared for the interview.
Find your ideal job
Psychometric testing will give you access to valuable information which will help you to select, win and enjoy the job that best suits you and your personality. Remember, if you find a job which ties in with your preferred way of dealing with things, then you are more likely to enjoy it and gain satisfaction.
