Good employers go to great lengths to match people to the right jobs.
Because we spend long hours at work, it is important to ensure that our abilities, skills and interests fit the requirements of the role.
Employers will consider what abilities and behaviours are required for a good job performance. These abilities and behaviours are packaged into competencies, that are expected to lead to a high performance when applied to tasks associated with the role.
Competencies are measured in interviews, computer-based assessments, assessment center activities and a broad range of assessment products.
Always remember that selection is a two-way process, where the next employment opportunities should be right for both, the employer and the candidate.
