DISC Job Matching

Matching personalities with ideal jobs and roles

With Job Matching, we can compare a person's DISC profile with the ideal for any job or role, and sum up how well their personality matches that role's needs.

DISC explains a personality in terms of four numbers, and quantifying a person's behaviour like this brings some significant advantages. This opens up, for example, the possibility of Job Matching. If we use DISC to predetermine the ideal personality style for a role, Discus can match the factor values in a DISC profile against that ideal, and so work out how well a candidate is suited to that role's needs. Because we know all the personality factors involved, it's even possible to highlight strengths that stand out, or areas where a person may need development.

It's important to stress that DISC Job Matching can only look at an individual's personality, and it's therefore limited to describing suitability in those terms, but nonetheless it can provide a powerful basic guideline in helping to make a recruitment decision.

Adaptation Needs

Areas where the candidate will likely need training or development, with useful behavioural questions.

As well as finding how well a personality matches a job, we can also reverse the process to create a Candidate Match. If we have a job, and a set of DISC results for each applicant, Discus can search through those applicants to find the ones whose personalities are closest to the ideal.

Job Profiling

Both types of matching, Job Matching and Candidate Matching, rely on having a predefined personality profile for the job we're matching against - a Job Profile. A natural question would be: where does this ideal DISC profile come from?

There are two possible answers to that question. The simplest and easiest is to select a template from a library of predefined profiles. Discus includes several hundred templates for the most common types of roles, from categories as diverse as administration or sales, or specialised as education or media.

Those templates are a useful starting point, but the best possible approach is to create your own custom Job Profile to match the exact needs of a job. Discus includes a complete built-in Job Profiler service to help you do just that. You can start, for example, by answering a set of questions about a job that's analogous to a normal DISC questionnaire, and from those answers Discus will build a Job Profile. For more advanced cases, the Job Profiler provides a host of other options, so you can (for example) base a Job Profile on the personality of a really successful candidate, or 'tweak' the profile's settings to match your needs perfectly.
