New Opportunities In Psychology

The need for assessment psychologists is growing. Psychological assessments were originally popular in clinical settings but today they can be found in many areas of psychology including organizational psychology. Organizational psychologists use psychological assessments for pre-employment screening, development and selection. Getting the right talent on the bus shouldn’t be left up to intuition. When you bring in the precise measurements, then at least you’re resting the data you’re getting on something that is reliable and trustworthy. Psychological assessments can also be used in career planning helping guide individuals toward or award from specific career paths. Helping individuals identify these paths can save them time and money in the long run. Without an accurate assessment, it’s impossible to establish appropriate goals for executive development.
