By | Blog, Career Development, Job Seeker, Personal Profile, Recent Articles

Your personality is a layered, ambiguous and is something that may change over time. Many people with the same personality type may still be vastly different. Therefore, is it worthwhile to discover your personality type? Well, it is quite useful especially in an employment context.

Why is it beneficial for work?

There are a number of tools used by employers to understand and categorise personality in an employment context. The aim of these tools is to help get people into the right roles for them, ensuring that they have the best chance of succeeding.

To categorise personality types, most tools gather information about character traits, decision-making methods, behaviour and attitudes. From these categories, conclusions can be drawn. For example, your personality type may indicate what attracts or repels you. It could also identify situations which may cause you stress.

Understanding your own personality in an employment context can be a helpful guide for understanding what sort of personalities gravitate towards certain jobs.

By | Blog, FAQ - Profile, Job Seeker, Personal Profile, Professional Profile

As a Job Seeker, which field is the most important field on your profile?

When you are completing your profile, one of the most important fields to set is “Your Next Job“. You can find the link on Your Personal Dashboard, when you log into the I Want 2 Work site.

Why is “Your Next Job” so important? Employers will be searching for candidates using “Type of Job” as their key search criteria. It therefore stands to reason that a prospective employer will want to search for a specific job role, like a Photographer, Motor Mechanic or Carpenter. If you want to appear in these search results you need to have “Your Next Job” set. You can change your next job as often as you like, and you also have the opportunity to list a number of jobs which you have the education, skills or desire to do by upgrading your account. Think carefully about the type of job you want to be offered as we have over 800 different jobs in the I Want 2 WORK database already. Read More
