APTITUDE CONSULTANT

Non-profit aptitude testing center in Buckhead that is part of a national research organization providing career guidance has a full-time position available. We are looking for a candidate with at least a bachelors degree (no specific major) and some prior professional work experience who:

has good communication skills (liberal arts background helpful)

enjoys working with people on an individual basis

can handle paperwork quickly and accurately

We are intellectually curious individuals who administer and interpret aptitude tests to students and adults who seek an understanding of their personal abilities as an aid in educational and career 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, education or the social sciences in general. It combines elements of counseling and consulting with test administration and research to help others learn more about themselves.

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, responding to telephone and e-mail inquiries, and more.

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 offer paid training. Occasional travel to our other offices is optional once trained. The starting salary is $36,950 and is increased upon completion of training to $40,737. We offer paid vacation and sick days and full benefits (403b retirement plan and insurance).

Our hours are 8:15 am to 4:30 pm, leaving evenings and weekends free for life outside of work: family, friends, education, hobbies, etc. There are no last minute all-night or even after normal work hours obligations, although some weekdays around school holidays are mandatory. 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 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 vocabulary, and a measurable ability to process numeric information quickly.

Founded in 1922, The Johnson OConnor 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.
