In a development assessment we look together at what gives you energy. What talents do you have and how can you further develop them? We coach you specifically during the assessment. Afterwards you will also receive a personal and clear report with development advice to help you even further.
An assessment is often part of the final phase of an application process. For many companies it is a useful tool to test your suitability for a position. What you show is compared to the job requirements and compared with other candidates. This is followed by a recommendation. If this is positive, then you have the job. So a lot depends on an assessment, because the company takes the result extremely seriously. That is why it is smart to prepare well. Sometimes the selection and development assessment are combined.
An assessment consists of:
Interview with a psychologist
Cognitive Capacity Tests
Drivers Analysis (optionall)
Practical simulations (role playing)
Mailbox exercise (optional)

Central during the assessment:
What do you want?
What can you do?
Who are you?
What do you do?
Psychologists want to find out whether you fit into the position and whether you meet the criteria set. For them it is important to be able to properly predict whether you want to be as expected in the position and specific working environment. In other words: are you going to succeed or fail?
After the assessment you will receive an interview and view the report. This is an important moment because you can learn from it. In the case of a negative recommendation, it is important to elaborate on the how and why of the results. After this discussion, the report will be forwarded with advice with your approval.
