Providing the right input when defining the Job Profile for a new role is essential in order to find the best candidates for the role.

This article discussed how to create the initial profile and how to further customize it based on your unique needs.

Creating the initial profile

Bryq provides two easy ways for you to create a new Job Profile - based on our built-in role database or based on our unique AI Profile Prediction.

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.

Using the AI Profile Prediction

The drawback of the role database 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. We have analyzed tens of thousands of Job Descriptions and the cognitive weights and personality traits associated with them in training our system.

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 and after a few seconds, Bryq will propose a profile tailored to the specific information in your JD.

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. But a Software Developer for a startup is not the same person that would thrive in a multinational bank. They are both Software Developer, 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.

Furthermore, by having HMs signoff on the Job Profile, you prepare them for the kind of candidates they will be receiving, and 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.
