Research has consistently shown that personality is one of the most reliable predictors of long-term job success and satisfaction. Personality Job Fit is an online job match platform that leverages the power of scientific personality testing. Active job-seekers (or those researching potential careers) are provided with customized personality reports and local openings that match their core traits.
The Personality Job Fit Assessment is a brief (only 25 items!), validated questionnaire developed by an Industrial Psychologist. After completing the assessment, users are given correlation-based match scores indicating the degree of fit between their unique personality profile and the personalities of satisfied, successful employees from a variety of rapid growth occupations. Users then have the option to organize their job matches by occupational field and/or level of education. Each job match links to local openings for that particular position.
Personality Job Fit customized reports provide users with their standings on the “Big 5” personality traits (i.e., Openness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism) as well as insights into work environments that would foster job satisfaction. An overview of these reports can be shared with friends on users’ favorite social networking sites.
Finally, users have access to weekly-updated Job Search Tips, which include educational videos and custom curated articles tailored for job-seekers.
Knowledge is transient. Skills become quickly outdated. But personality traits endure.
A well-documented study, published in Harvard Business Review, found that "Job Match" (i.e., the degree to which an employee's personality is aligned with the position) is by far the most reliable predictor of effectiveness on the job. The researchers concluded the following: "It's not experience that counts or college degrees or other accepted factors; success hinges on a fit with the job."
