Why should you care about job fit? What is Job Fit? This “fit” is the mergining of an individual's behavioral traits, cognitive traits and interests. Making a successful hire is much more than a resume and a face-to-face interview. You need to see what is below the surface. Wouldn't you also like to replicate top performers? It certainly costs less to make a successful hire than to fire and rehire! Job fit assessments will help you to hire, develop and retain employees.
