You can also then download interview questions employers would likely ask you based on your profile and tips on how to improve.
JobFit is an online work-simulation game which prepares you for employment. Learn your strengths and weakness and how to improve, and receive an interview questions guide.
The game highlights characteristics and abilities beyond those obtained from traditional personality or ability tests. These are revealed by the way in which the game is played; the actions, reactions, and decisions, combined with ability to adapt, manage and perform are revealed. Thousands of data points are recorded and analysed by sophisticated data algorithms and predictive statistical models to produce the results.
Profiling tools must first and foremost deliver valid results. Under the supervision of our occupational psychologists we have run extensive trials which compare the results of our games with traditional measurement techniques and these have shown that our games have statistically validated construct validity on all measured behavioural traits.
Thousands of data points are captured and recorded during the assessment and all lead to a more in-depth assessment of behaviour and performance. The metrics are collated, analysed and presented in a quick-to-view profile with suggested areas to explore and the player receives his or her own report summarising the assessment scores.
JobFit combines two strong traditions in psychometrics and the use of applied psychology to measure work-related competencies.
Like many existing and traditional measures including Myers-Briggs and the Occupational Personality Questionnaire, JobFit includes measures based on the Five Factor Model of Personality. Specifically JobFit concentrates on work-related areas stemming from superordinate traits like Agreeableness, Extraversion, Conscientiousness and Emotional Stability.
Unlike many personality-based measures, JobFit works by sampling behaviours in real-time in response to virtual work-based situations not by answers to questionnaires.
So JobFit is more like a virtual assessment centre where behaviour is measured dynamically and as part of a behavioural flow, unlike in situational judgement tests or questionnaires, where behaviour tends to be measured in parts and often as a multiple choice. JobFit is therefore unique in the way it builds on fundamental concepts in personality measured dynamically in a simulation of work.
JobFit develops its online psychometric games in partnership with t-PHI. t-PHI is a supplier of psychological and psychometric expertise for the design and testing of employee development, selection, recruitment and appraisal products.
The psychometric development and statistical validity testing was led by Dr. Michael Burnett, (HCPC) Registered Occupational Psychologist, Chartered Psychologist & Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society (BPS), Registered EuroPsy Psychologist. Michael holds a BA in Psychology and a PhD. from the University of Surrey where he researched new methods of assessing people at work using simulations. You can find out more here: http://t-phi.co.uk
