      In other words, everyone I know–myself included–walks out of the conversation feeling a little iffy. Even if, on one level, you know you did a great job; there’s another part of you that’s questioning if you used that industry phrase correctly.

      These Personality Tests Might Know Your Dream Job Better Than You Do

      Until recently, recruiters and hiring managers have had to rely on gut instinct to determine whether or not a candidate will make a good fit on a prospective employer’s team. Now a company called SquarePeg is throwing them a lifeline. Launching out of beta this month, SquarePeg is putting some data behind the hard-to-articulate notion of “fit.” The company’s goal is to replace interviewers’ intuition with assessments that size up candidates’ personality attributes as well as their skill sets.

      As every startup founder and CEO eventually finds, it’s hard pleasing everyone. You’ve got customers to keep happy, of course.
