Branding “The Self”
Are we what we do or do what we are? At Lighthouse Recruiting we look at this anomaly as a “whole” where we are comprised of things that identify what we are in relation to our environment and community and things that identify what we do in relation to our environment and community. Ultimately we like to consider ourselves a composite of attributes and contributions identified by our thoughts and behavior within an environment.
- I am:
- Identify, highlight and accentuate your positive professional and interpersonal forte with your industry experience and skills. Be ready and willing to share this information within the professional community where these composite attributes will resonate as a whole in relation to you as a professional and portray you as a positive contributor to that industry.
- Performance appraisal or performance evaluation is the process of measuring an individual's work behaviors and outcomes against the expectations of the job. Performance appraisal is frequently used in promotion and compensation decisions, to help design and validate personnel selection procedures, and for performance management. Performance management is the process of providing performance feedback relative to expectations and improvement information (e.g., coaching, mentoring). Performance management may also include documenting and tracking performance information for organization-level evaluation purposes.
- Individual assessment involves the measurement of individual differences. I-O psychologists perform individual assessments in order to evaluate differences among candidates for employment as well as differences among employees. The constructs measured pertain to job performance. With candidates for employment, individual assessment is often part of the personnel selection process. These assessments can include written tests, physical tests, psychomotor tests, personality tests, work samples, and assessment centers.
