When defining the Job Profile, providing the right input for a new role is essential in order to find the best candidates.
This article discusses how to create the initial profile, and how to further customize it based on your unique needs.
Creating the initial profile
Bryq provides three easy ways for you to create a new Job Profile based on:
our built-in role database
our unique AI Profile Prediction
selection of your optimized role profile
1. Using the role database
For any new assessment you create, you need to provide the Job Title and Department. As you type a Job Title, Bryq will suggest common Job Titles found in our database.
With just this information, you can click on the "Predict Profile" Button. Bryq will immediately match the role you entered to the closest one in its database, which has in turn been already matched to specific cognitive weights and personality traits, based on the Holland Codes theory.
2. Using the AI Profile Prediction
The drawback of the role database mentioned above is that many times a role title is used as a blanket term and can mean many different things. For example, the term "Program Manager" can actually mean a Project Manager, a Marketing Person, a Business Development person, or something completely different.
For this reason, Bryq has developed the Profile Predictor feature, which is powered by Artificial Intelligence. Before training our system, we analyzed tens of thousands of Job Descriptions and the cognitive weights and personality traits associated with them.
All you need to do is paste your Job Description in the corresponding text box. The text can include all the information usually contained in a JD. After you click on the "Predict Profile" button, The Profile Predictor will analyze the JD information you provided. A short animation will play while the analysis is ongoing. After a few seconds, Bryq will propose a profile tailored to the specific information in your JD.
3. Using your optimized Role Profiles
Finally, you have the option to click on the tab Role Profiles and select from a drop down list one of the optimized role profiles. These role profile templates are saved during the role optimization process which takes place in the Talent Insights module. The important aspect of this feature is the ability to select a very targeted role profile that is generated from your own employees and thus benefit from a better quality of hires.
Please note that this option is not available in case Talent Insights are not enabled. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
Customizing the initial profile
The initial proposal provided by our system should be very close to what you need, but it is customized based on the JD only. Take into account: a Software Developer for a startup is not the same person that would thrive in a multinational bank. They are both Software Developers, but there are quite different personality traits that suit each environment best.
You now have the opportunity to customize the profile proposed by the system, by adding, removing, or modifying cognitive skills and personality traits.
Aligning with Hiring Managers
It is always a great idea to review the final Job Profile with the Hiring Manager for the role.
This is an important step because it helps the HM visualize the requirements for the role; often - at this stage - HMs will realize that some of their requirements are contradicting each other or are not really relevant to the role.
By having HMs sign off on the Job Profile, you prepare them for the kind of candidates they will be receiving. It is much easier for them to subsequently interview and hire candidates, knowing that these candidates have been objectively selected based on their own unique criteria.
