Dr. Blaine Gaddis and Ashley Palmer will speak at the Academy of Human Resource Development in Arlington, Virginia, February 14-16. They will discuss the Development of a Competency Model for Entry-Level Selection.
Hogan uses personality to forecast performance in competencies critical for entry-level jobs. Using job analysis evidence and existing research, Blaine and Ashley identified competencies required for success in entry-level jobs and developed algorithms to predict performance. They will present meta-analysis results validating the utility of these competency algorithms for selection into entry-level jobs during their discussion.
