    • A.

      Company culture

    • B.

      Manager style

    • C.

      Team structure

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Having an up-to-date job description is important for job fit, but it is not the only factor to consider. Company culture, manager style, and team structure can also greatly impact how well a person fits into a job. Company culture refers to the values, beliefs, and behaviors that are shared within an organization, and it can greatly influence an individual's satisfaction and performance in a job. Manager style refers to the way a manager communicates, makes decisions, and interacts with their team, which can greatly affect an employee's motivation and productivity. Team structure refers to how a team is organized and how members collaborate, which can impact an individual's ability to work effectively with others. Therefore, all of these factors are important in determining job fit.

    In general, the TA team sends the Caliper assessment to a candidate:

    • A.

      After the resume review in preparation for the phone screen

    • B.

      Before the hiring manager conducts a phone interview with the candidate

    • C.

      After the hiring manager phone interview, and before the on-site interview

    • D.

      After the on-site interview

    Correct Answer
    C. After the hiring manager phone interview, and before the on-site interview
    Explanation
    The Caliper assessment is sent to the candidate after the hiring manager phone interview and before the on-site interview. This suggests that the purpose of the assessment is to further evaluate the candidate's suitability for the position after they have passed the initial phone interview. It allows the company to gather more information about the candidate's skills, abilities, and personality traits before making a final decision on whether to proceed with the on-site interview.

    Potential resume “red flags” are:

    • A.

      Employment gaps

    • B.

      Measurable accomplishments

    • C.

      Forward career progression

    • D.

      Credentials such as certificates and licenses

    Correct Answer
    A. Employment gaps
    Explanation
    Employment gaps can be considered as potential resume "red flags" because they may raise questions about the candidate's reliability, consistency, and ability to stay committed to a job. Employers often prefer candidates with a consistent work history, as it indicates their dedication and reliability. Employment gaps can also be seen as a lack of experience or skills development during that period. Therefore, it is important for candidates to address any employment gaps in their resume and provide a valid explanation for them.

    Correct Answer
    B. A scientific instrument that measures natural tendencies
    Explanation
    The Caliper Profile is a scientific instrument that measures natural tendencies. It is not a timed assessment with all 'right or wrong' answers, nor does it predict how someone will behave on the job. The Caliper Profile is used to assess an individual's natural strengths, motivations, and potential areas for development, providing insights into their personality traits and preferences. It is often used in hiring and talent management processes to help organizations make informed decisions about candidates and employees.

    Correct Answer
    B. A numerical job recommendation coding system
    Explanation
    The refreshed Caliper report includes a numerical job recommendation coding system. This coding system is likely designed to provide numerical ratings or scores for job recommendations based on various criteria. This system can help employers or recruiters quickly assess and compare candidates for job positions. It adds a quantitative aspect to the assessment process, allowing for more objective evaluations and decision-making.

    Which of the following is ‘not’ considered an “Interpersonal Trait?”

    • A.

      Sociability

    • B.

      Empathy

    • C.

      Accommodation

    Explanation
    Abstract reasoning is not considered an interpersonal trait because it refers to the ability to think logically and analytically, to solve problems, and to understand complex concepts. Interpersonal traits, on the other hand, are related to how individuals interact and communicate with others, such as sociability, empathy, and accommodation. These traits involve understanding and responding to the emotions and needs of others, as well as being adaptable and cooperative in social situations. Abstract reasoning is more closely associated with cognitive abilities rather than interpersonal skills.

    Assertiveness is considered a "Leadership trait" because it refers to the ability to confidently express one's opinions, ideas, and needs while respecting the rights and opinions of others. A leader needs to be assertive in order to effectively communicate their vision, make decisions, and motivate their team. Assertiveness helps leaders establish authority, gain respect, and inspire others to follow their lead. It is an important trait for leaders to possess as it enables them to navigate challenging situations, negotiate conflicts, and drive positive change within an organization.

    Your role as the interviewer should be to:

    • A.

      Accept phone calls and check your e-mail to see how the candidate manages interruptions

    • B.

      Make decisions based on candidates’ qualifications

    Correct Answer
    D. Make decisions based on candidates’ qualifications
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to make decisions based on candidates' qualifications. The role of the interviewer is to evaluate the candidate's qualifications and suitability for the position. Accepting phone calls and checking emails, interrogating the candidate, and doing most of the talking are not the primary responsibilities of an interviewer. These activities may be distractions or may not provide relevant information about the candidate's qualifications.

The STAR model is a commonly used framework in behavioral based interviews. It stands for Situation, Task, Action, and Result. This model helps the interviewer understand the specific situation the candidate faced, the task or challenge they were given, the action they took to address the situation, and the result or outcome of their actions. By using this model, interviewers can assess a candidate's problem-solving skills, decision-making abilities, and their ability to achieve positive results in different situations.
