Employing the right person for the job is often a difficult decision. This is compounded by the need to go through hundreds sometimes thousands of applications from potential employees.
To help alleviate this problem, a team of psychologists from University Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS) have developed iCompetent, a trademarked psychological internet based instrument for screening potential employees with the aptitude for the job.
It is a speedy and efficient tool which utilises theories and methods of psychological tests to unravel the hidden talents of individuals, which may not be very obvious from conventional face-to-face interviews.
iCompetent is an efficient computer and internet based technology, which enables organisations to conduct selection of the best candidates at the press of a button. The inner personal competencies of think-feel-act of job applicants that you are looking for can be quickly revealed, saving both time and money.
Furthermore, as it is an internet based technology, iCompetent allows for the screening of thousands of job applications from all over the world, 24 hours a day, even when the organisation is closed for business. The research team can also tailor the system to suit different company needs.
The system was recently purchased by The Sarawak Department of Public Service.

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
