Hi Everybody,
There is no method to detect the interest of candidate if he got another offer after your interview or else have alternate options he may prefer the best this doesnot requires any psychometric test (interest inventory)
Because this is subject of common sense. According to your logic all police stations in India should have provision for psychometric test (interest inventory) in order to reduce crime rate and bomb blast.

Hi all,
My experience is that you can motivate a candidate to join a particular organization or take a certain job, but he isn't going to take it just because you think he's the best candidate for the job. You'll want to "sell" the job and the company to him.
If you have the right tools & techniques, it's fairly easy to do.
What I use is an attitude-based interview and/or an online survey that measures a person's work strategy and motivation. It basically gives you an insight in how a person works, and what he likes to do at work. It gives me an insight in how to (ethically) convince a candidate to choose for a particular job or company.
If you're interested and ready to improve your success rate, let me know:

Hi all
There is no test to understand the likes and dislikes of a person and appointing anyone on basis of his whims and fancies would not be a right way of looking Right person for the Right position. As I know and understand these tests throw up ones characteristic and personality traits to understand to some extent the individual.

the test conducted during the interview process are individual specific. I do not think with the help of psyco test we can know the interest of the candidate.
we need to understand why people do not join after the offer is generated.
Most of the times candidates tend to enquire about the organizations that they get offers from friends and relatives. they may not know any thing about your company.

Hi everybody,
In my opinion one of the instrument to find out about the future plans of an new employee is "The Dream Statement". In this instrument, first of all, employee shares info regarding his/her backround, strengths/weaknesses and ultimately etc., why he has joined the organisation and what are his dreams in life. This way the empoyee shares his views about his/her future plans. Although it is very tough to get a direct feed back whether he/she is going to remain with the organisation in the years to come. I had been using this with new employees and have found this information comes up in this instrument.
With regards,

Dear All

There is no exclusive test or method which can make a candidate join the organisation. As far as my

understanding and experience in this field we as a HR/Manpower Consultancy fail to take care of the recruitment process pls. try to follow the below mentioned points i am sure it will help u.

1.Getting the Job requirement which includes ( JD, Salary, Career Path atleast next 2 levels)

2. Get some key factors of that company which can help u to convince the candidate.

3. Moreover, always think you are not just offering him a job it is a career so u should be able to analyse the

candidates capability and u should be also in aposition to say that this job will not create a career for u instead it only can

give u monetary benefit so it is better chose a job which will give a Career.

4. Priliminary round of interview is very important if a candidate is not coming for the interview or starts giving reason why he is not able come it cleary means he/she is not interested or satisfiyed the way u have explained.

5. There is no point in forcing a candiate to attend the interview u have to convince him explaining the + and - about the job.

I hope this may help u.

You may try the followring -
1. Holland's Interest Inventory. The assumption of Holland's model is that -'People with a particular interest are likely to perform well in certain jobs'.
2. Thomas Interest Profiling
3. MAPP - Motivational Appraisal of Personal Potential and so on.
But, you need to buy these tests for your company.
Today what is happening in the market is that, many times the candidates are forced ( pressure of getting a job, offers made by comapnies despite knowing the interest of a person, nexes of education institutions etc.) to get into a job, which is very different from their interest.
If possible, offer them a job only if their interest, personality, skills match with the profile.

No Psycho test will be helpful for this. Please do check company feedback out in market(this can be reason for the same) & also try to know the reason when any new joiner turn down your offer... work on that feedback (it can be salary structure, hierarchy or may be any other reason)
