Conveying job requirements through an engaging and realistic rich media simulation is just one part of a truly effective recruitment process. To reach its full potential, a VJP also must help potential applicants assess whether their interests and values are a good match with the job. HumRRO has been helping job seekers evaluate this type of fit for decades, for example:
- We created tools such as the Occupational Information Network (O*NET) Work Importance Profiler to help individuals find meaningful careers.
- We developed an engaging and interactive online career exploration system that spans over 600 occupations across 370 Federal agencies.
A key strength of our VJPs is that they allow person-job fit to be assessed in a truly contextualized way. For example, the policing VJP we developed consists of a variety of situations commonly faced by police officers. Each scenario allows individuals to experience the types of interpersonal and emotional skills demanded by police work, and they are prompted to think about their own interests in light of those demands through questions embedded within each scenario.
Along with being engaging and informative, our VJPs are flexible and easy to administer. Users can complete a VJP and receive real-time feedback via desktop computers, smartphones, and tablets, and clients can host a VJP on their platforms or have us administer it for them.
Do potential applicants engaged in your recruitment process feel like they are having a great conversation?
