Job Profiling


The OTDN offers a variety of options for Job Profiling. The OTDN professionals are trained and certified by leading worldwide recognized businesses and organizations. Job Profiling is a process providing job evaluation based on tasks, work context, behaviors and competencies. It enhances the pre-hire selection and employee development processes by providing a comprehensive job description, behavioral interview questions, recommendations for assessments to administer, and identifies the key competencies for the job.

Job Profiling can help in:

  • Defining and designing the job responsibilities
  • Identifying key strategies for successful employee selection and development.
  • Creating an effective performance management system
  • Defining the characteristics of a job and the qualities required to succeed.

This can be especially important in jobs where there is little or no training time available.
