Characteristic of Rake’s approach is that an assessment is conducted individually and that a candidate is not assessed as part of a group. Rake has opted for this method to guarantee candidates optimal privacy and peace.
The interview is at the heart of an assessment. During the interview, the psychologist will discuss the results of the various questionnaires and the observations from the role-playing session(s) with the candidate and will test them against reality. An inventory of the candidate’s qualities and development needs will then be made in consultation with the candidate. The phrasing of assessment questions is designed to measure the abilities necessary for a specific job (job assessment), to identify development needs (development assessment) or to make an inventory of career perspectives (career assessment). Often a combination of these assessment questions is used.
