What is Job Fit Quest?

Job Fit Quest is a scientifically-developed questionnaire and measures the personality traits that predict motivation and behavior at work. It can be used for:

  • Selection of job applicants
  • Talent identification and development
  • Definition of training and development needs
  • Building effective teams

Job Fit Quest can be used in combination with other tests or questionnaires, interview and/or assessment and development center.
The report contains 3 main sections with results:

  • Validity – reveals the response validity and the individual’s attitude toward the assessment process.
  • Individual Profile – displays the results for 11 personality traits forming the work profile of the individual.
  • Professional Match – pairs the personality profile with five key professional roles.

How are the results presented?

Test results are presented in sten scores. The ten-point scale allows comparison between the individual personality profile and the reference norm group.
Job Fit Quest is standardized through nationally representative sample which includes people from different job sectors and the norms are differentiated by gender, age and education. The results are classified in three main groups:

  • Low (from 1.00 to 3.49 scores) – corresponding to approximately 16% of the norm group with the lowest results on the particular scale.
  • Medium (from 3.50 to 7.49 scores) – corresponding to approximately 68% of the norm group with results within the average norm for the scale.
  • High (from 7.5 to 10 scores) – corresponding to approximately 16% of the reference group with the highest levels of the particular personality trait.

Keep in mind:  The results must be interpreted only by specialists who are qualified to use the questionnaire. The report contains personal data and must be stored according to the country’s Law for Protection of Personal Data.

In development programs:

Job Fit Quest can provide employees with feedback which can be used as a starting point for career counseling, personal development, and increase of their motivation and engagement with training and development programs.

It is recommended that the feedback session starts with a discussion of the employee’s strengths. The employee may be encouraged to identify them on their own through leading questions. The information received is then compared to the test results and the matches and/or discrepancies can be discussed.

In a similar way, a discussion of the employee’s developmental areas follows. The focus has to be put on those characteristics and behaviors that are significant to the particular position.

The final stages of the feedback session can be used to negotiate the areas of development that the employee is willing to work on. The main goal here is to reach a mutual agreement and high engagement.
