Step 1: PLAN | Know the Job

Many hiring managers start the selection process without knowing what their ideal candidate looks like. Whether you’re seeking a senior executive, a mid-level manager, an individual contributor, or a salesperson, PXT Select™ helps you identify the traits and behaviours required to perform a job successfully.

Our solution helps hiring managers and recruiters align early in the hiring and selection process by defining targets across cognitive traits, behavioral traits, and occupational interests most important to be successful in a position. These targets, also known as performance models, determine the range of scores typical for success in the position you are trying to fill. With these performance models in place, the hiring process is accelerated, and the path of employee development is illuminated.
