BERKE Pre-employment assessment tool

The Berke Pre-employment assessment tool is a free resource available to all departments. The tool assesses candidates against personality and talent traits directly related to the role you are hiring for. The result is a “Job Fit Report” and “Interview Guide” for each candidate that gives you an extra source of comparison to increase your ability to select the best candidate for your department! For more details and how to get started, see slides 34-53 of the “UCO Hiring Procedures” document above.

What other departments using the Berke Pre-employment assessment tool have said:

“This tool provides wonderful insight when framing our interview questions. It provides great suggestions on areas we might want to explore deeper with the candidate to ensure they are indeed the right fit for the job.” – Anne Holzberlein (VP for Development & President UCO Foundation)

“The Department of Mass Communication was one of the first academic departments to use the Berke Pre Employment Assessment. It is phenomenal!  It provided additional insight for our staff and faculty applicant pool and assisted us in making good hiring decisions. In terms of the people we hired, the Berke results were exceptionally accurate.” – Rozilyn Miller, Ph.D. (Director, Leadership Minor & Assistant Dean, College of Liberal Arts)

“Berke provides insight on a broad spectrum of skills that come in to play once an applicant becomes our new hire. What I like best about the feedback is that it helps me make a more informed hiring decision and develop a strategy for helping my new hire be successful by playing to their strengths.” – Geoff Willis (Assistant Dean for Curriculum Management and Global Activities, Information Systems & Op Mgmt)

“The Berke Assessment is a great tool to increase team diversity.  Not only does it help predict a good job fit, it also helps me-as a supervisor-specifically identify candidates whose strengths compliment the needs of my team.” – Amy Rogalsky, MLA, NBCT. (Student Support Services Programs, TEACH Project Director)
