TSB 009: Attract the Right Talent Using this Job Posting Analyzer

This week's tip: Using the Job Posting Analyzer + Behavioral and Cognitive Assessments = Data-Driven Hiring

Most people spend more time gathering data on the restaurant they'll choose for lunch than on a potential new hire to join their team.
Yet the stakes couldn't be higher.
A bad choice in an employee can create more work for the rest of the team, tear down morale, and destroy your culture.
Then why do so many of us depend on an impressive resume, positive recommendations (we should have seen that coming), and a polished interviewee?
Because that was how we were trained, and it worked fairly well in the days before everyone learned how to present themselves well on Instagram or Zoom and freelancers made it affordable for anyone to get a resume writer to beat the artificial intelligence (AI) gatekeepers.
Job candidates have a leg up on employers now. Glassdoor, Indeed, and any number of sites allow potential employees to read reviews and see ratings on hiring organizations before they consider submitting an application.
But we still don't have a consistent and reliable way to evaluate applicants.
Enter the Predictive Index.
I've been using it to train hiring managers on how to use the Job Posting Analyzer to create a set of ideal behavioral and cognitive profiles to match against assessments completed by job candidates to determine potential fit.
Simply upload a link or the text of your job description, and in less than 5 minutes, you'll get an email with a set of ideal behavioral profiles to match the job description.  Purchasers of the Predictive Index software get an ideal cognitive profile as well.
Using this data in combination with resumes, interviews, and letters of recommendation adds so much more rigor to the interviewing and hiring process.
The added benefit is that a standardized process that is more objective than subjective is better for diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA).

I can't wait to hear what you think and how you use it to attract the right talent.
