The screening process in hiring is getting longer. You need skills assessments, personality tests, multiple interviews – the process can drag on forever. Assessments and tests are eating up your time and the time of job candidates, and you need a simpler way to find the best person for the job.

Enter jobFig, an app that quickly delivers personality assessments in the form of resumes to allow recruiters to easily review important data from candidates.

How jobFig Works

JobFig uses the Five-Factor Model of personality to create behavioral resumes for recruiters to better find the right candidate and for candidates to find the right jobs for them. Candidates complete a personality assessment in five to seven minutes and receive their results to share with employers.

For Employers

Employers invite candidates and existing employees to complete a personality assessment through the web app. For a deeper analysis, employers can access data through APIs that correlate behavioral data to company datasets such as performance, conflicts, team makeup, and engagement with company initiatives. In this way, organizations can run multiple analyses on candidates, and candidates only have to take one test.

For Candidates

Candidates and employees who create behavioral resumes own their data and choose who can view it. Job seekers can share their data with employers for a more personalized job search and onboarding experience. Behavioral resumes change along with candidates over time to reflect their career goals and major life events.

Pros of jobFig

  • The assessment can be taken on a smartphone, computer, or tablet.
  • Data is good for more than a year, so candidates don’t need to retake assessments.
  • Takes less than 10 minutes of a candidate’s time.
  • Results are explained clearly.

Cons of jobFig

  • Must purchase an annual subscription to the service instead of a set amount of assessments.
