    In an increasingly competitive employment market, obtaining the best career advice and knowing the right skills and strengths to highlight is more important than ever when getting your dream job.

    Just when you think technology has reached it’s peak, the global leader in talent management solutions, SHL, have launched the iPQ Career Planner – an intelligence test designed for use on iPhones and iPads.


    The iPQ is a compact version of SHL’s world renowned Occupational Personality Questionnaire and is available for download at just 59p per report. The test takes just 20 minutes before identifying the most suitable career for you and summarizing your key skills and strengths.

    ‘In today’s ultra-competitive job market, everyone needs a step up to help them secure the job that’s right for them,’ says Paul Levett, Chief Product Officer at SHL. ‘The iPQ Career Planner gives users personalized development advice to improve their chances of success in interviews or assessments.’

    The iPQ is the first scientifically robust personality and career assessment of its kind, enabling users to take the assessment in just the same way as they would on a PC or using a pen and paper.

    Mr Levett says: ‘People need to know what their strengths and weaknesses are in order to address them, and match their skills to the right job. The iPQ questionnaire is guaranteed to provide you with an objective response.’
