Talent Assessment is a healthcare industry specific psychometric test. Psychometric assessments are intended to evaluate individuals’ suitability for a role based on cognitive skills and personality characteristics. Psychometric tests determine the extent to which an individual’s aptitude and personality match those needed to execute the role. Following the psychometric assessment, we will advise you on top 3 verticals within the healthcare sector most suited for your skills and personality. For example, we will be able to tell you whether your skills are suited for R&D, Quality Assurance or Marketing. This is a recommendation based on many years of experience which will arm you with the right data to pursue a “right job” which will advance career growth and job satisfaction. This may be different from your own assessment of strengths. We recognise that there is no right answer or right path – our recommendation is one of many viewpoints
