Job Applicant Interview & Testing: Psychologist-on-Call™

Large organizations throughout the world employ their own in-house Business Psychologists. They call upon these psychologists to assist in the design and development of the recruitment and selection process, among other roles.

Within the selection interview, the Business Psychologist is able to bring scientific tools and principles, as well as expertise in the application of ability and personality theory in the workplace. The end result is an enhanced ability to predict the likely work performance from Job Applicant Interviews.

Our Psychologist-on-Call™ service provides the same services as would typically be offered by in-house organizational psychologists to organizations who do not currently use these individuals or whose own psychologists are engaged in other tasks or where an external perspective is required.

Our Job Applicant Interview & Psychometric Testing Process

Create Job / Role Profile

Prior to the Job Applicant Interview, we assist in the creation of a job profile by examining the job description, competency profile and any other information that you may have about the job. We may ask you to undertake an online job analysis questionnaire. Additionally, we consult international competency and behavioral indicator databases to provide us with a clear understanding of the job (as an additional consultancy service we can also run a job analysis for you).

Psychometric Testing of Job Applicants

Based on your role requirements, we recommend the most suitable psychometric tests and, upon your approval, we invite your job applicants to complete these assessments online. Once completed, we score the assessments and produce confidential psychometric test reports.

Job Applicant Interview & Psychometric Testing

Job Applicant Interviews

With the role profile, job description, person specification and results from the psychometric assessments in hand, our experienced Registered Psychologists now facilitate a Job Applicant Interview. We use mainly a technique called “Behavior Based Interviewing” where we gather evidence to support or refute the notion that a particular candidate has the skills, competencies and experience required to be successful in the role.  This technique has been shown through lots of research to be the most valid interviewing technique to predict work performance. (Note that not all clients want us to undertake this interview due to budget constraints. If this is the case, we move on to the final point below.

Report and Feedback to Client

The final step is to send the psychometric assessment report(s) to our client by email a short time before we contact the client and provide a full feedback session. The objective is for the client or decision-maker to fully understand the reports and their limitations, along with the candidates’ likelihood of succeeding in the role given all the information to hand. We typically recommend assessing at least 3 or 4 candidates for any single position to make any comparison meaningful. Many of our clients ask us to undertake assessments of a much larger number of candidates however, so we have expertise of testing over 1000 individuals and short-listing these down to smaller numbers for final interview with the client.
