Details: Salary is increased to $44,970 upon completion of training
Local, non-profit aptitude testing center in downtown Los Angeles that is part of a national career guidance organization has a full-time position available for a candidate with at least a bachelor’s degree (no specific major) who:
- has good communication skills (liberal arts background helpful)
- enjoys working with people on an individual basis
- is conscientious (punctual, responsible, etc.)
- can handle paperwork quickly and accurately
We are intellectually curious generalists who administer and interpret aptitude tests to individuals seeking understanding of personal abilities as an aid in career or educational planning. We enjoy being informed about the world of work and its many opportunities. Though we are not psychologists, this could be a fulfilling position for someone who is interested in psychology, sociology, or the social sciences in general. It combines elements of counseling and consulting with test administration to help others learn more about themselves. Someone with at least some work experience preferred.
The position requires accurate attention to detail in scoring and timing tests in addition to articulate explanation of career-oriented information. We also must handle our own office support work: entering data, scheduling appointments, preparing materials, responding to telephone and e-mail inquiries, and more. This is a small work environment (you would be working with the director and one other aptitude consultant), but you will be meeting new clients nearly every day.
Our hours are 8:15 am to 4:30 pm, Monday - Friday, leaving evenings and weekends free for life outside work: family, friends, education, gigs, hobbies, etc. There are no last minute all-night or even after normal work hours obligations.
There is no sales or other solicitation work required. Our clients, usually word-of-mouth referrals, come to us because they want to learn more about themselves. We are hoping to increase outreach, so comfort with public speaking and presentations would be helpful.
The ideal candidate would enjoy helping others understand themselves using objective measurements in a positive way and would enjoy learning about and discussing individual abilities in relation to education and careers.
We provide full training of the specifics of our testing program and its administration. You bring a broad background of interests and knowledge evidenced by a bachelor's degree, strong English vocabulary, and a measurable ability to process clerical work quickly.
Founded in 1922, The Johnson O’Connor Research Foundation is dedicated to helping people of all ages (from high school to retirement) discover work that is satisfying and rewarding. You can find more information about the Foundation and aptitude testing on our website: jocrf.org.
