The most difficult part of selecting candidates is determining if applicants possess the necessary knowledge. Additionally, an inadequate procedure may result in the exclusion of desirable individuals. Hiring managers can now make better decisions about using pre-employment screenings in their hiring processes, owing to the technological improvements. Many companies use an electronic system to conduct a preliminary evaluation of job applicants. Today, modern technology has made it feasible to collect real-time data from job applicants and evaluate them to make more precise recruiting decisions.
New science has led to a substantial shift from personality assessments to emotional intelligence assessments in the last few decades. Personality assessments such as intelligence exams and tests to determine if someone is extroverted or introverted are only the tip of the iceberg for understanding a person in depth. A candidate’s past conduct can help hiring managers predict how they will behave in the future if they have a high level of emotional intelligence. Hiring managers need to keep this in mind when searching for the best candidate for the position. Studies have indicated that emotional intelligence competencies make up roughly 80 percent of the critical workplace competencies linked to successful employees.
On the other hand, emotional intelligence has a considerably greater success rate than personality tests, IQ tests, or other baseline assessments that many hiring managers are accustomed to in determining the best fit for a position in an organization. Using cutting-edge technology, the findings of an online assessment are delivered in real-time after the candidate has completed it. Candidates can be chosen from specific job openings or progress in the recruiting process with more intelligent selections.
