Answer the following:
What is meant by matching an individual with a job?
After completing the analysis of an individual’s characteristics (testing individuals) and the specific nature of a job (job analysis), a career counselor selects and recruits the suitable person for the job, matching the person’s abilities with the job requirements.
Through job analysis, job characteristics i.e. the components of each job are known. Then through the application of psychological tests, the characteristics of the person are traced. Then these two are thatched. This is known as matching individuals with jobs. If matching is a hundred percent, then the person is best suited for the job.
