PXT Select™ Step 2: ASSESS | Know the Candidate

Step 2: ASSESS | Know the Candidate

Knowing who to put through the interviewing or selection process can be daunting. Resumes, references, experience, or reputation may look great, but how do you know what’s below the surface? And let’s be honest – selecting someone for a job whether it’s an external hire, or an internal promotion or lateral move, is not an easy task. It takes time to prepare, experience to know what to ask or listen for, and the process can be intimidating if you’re not an expert interviewer. Asking insightful questions is just one piece. Remaining objective and knowing what to listen for is every bit as important. But don’t worry, we can help.

The PXT Select™ assessment asks candidates to respond to a set of questions to determine their fit to the position. The higher the overall Job Fit result, the better the fit to the role. Hiring managers can reach out to the most qualified candidates and advance them in the selection process. Assessment results include personalized questions to probe for how candidates might respond in different situations, especially in areas where the person doesn’t quite fit the model. This can provide insight that will help hiring managers better assess the fit with the team and organization.
