How and Why Organizations Can Responsibly Use Personality Assessments

Earlier this month, HBO released a documentary that promised to reveal the “dark side of personality tests.” Starring a mix of chattering Youtube personalities, corporate talking heads, and various activists with a bone to pick with the psychometrics industry, Persona devoted a mere hour and a half to covering essentially every circumstance in which a person might find themselves answering a question about their thoughts or behavior—and aimed to leave the viewer with a deep sense of foreboding about ever doing so again. 

How to Nail a Zoom Job Interview, Based on Your Enneagram Type

Not only did the Covid-19 pandemic disrupt the way many of us work, it also changed the recruitment process for both companies and candidates. As if job searching wasn’t difficult enough, now we also have to navigate online interviews, often under challenging circumstances.

Should You Turn Your Hobby Into a Business?

Do friends just happen to stop in when you’re baking cookies or homemade pies? Or maybe you knit trendy hats and scarves to give as gifts, or fix relatives’ computers for free just because you can.

Most likely, people have often remarked, “With your talent, you should open a business!”
