Good.co is a website that offers career and lifestyle advice after determining a user’s workplace personality type.
Filling out a profile with Good.co takes about three minutes, and it leads users to useful results regarding their respective workplace personality types. The survey Good.co asks users to take also differs from most workplace surveys, as it asks questions like what you would do if you reached $100k on “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” or whether you would join the chess club or the drama club if you had to start high school over. The site then uses a complex algorithm to calculate these results into a portrait of your personal characteristics. Good.co doesn’t categorize your answers into simple descriptions of your personality like many comparable sites. Instead, it truly delves deep into your personality and attempts to help you make insights about your ideal job situation.
Good.co also takes a step beyond traditional personality surveys by combining with LinkedIn and Facebook to determine whether or not your personality fits with your current job. If you currently lack a job and are seeking employment, the site helps determines what careers would be the best fit for a person of your personality type. The site is unique because it values personality as an important factor for determining a career. It’s tools are extensive, which means a user can spend a lot of time on the site discovering more information about his or herself in order to gain a better understanding of a career outlook. Good.co has over 500 companies with over 10,000 jobs hosted on the site, and it helps match users with potential job openings at companies such as Apple or Google. The website is a forward-thinking way to approach the job search, and should be used by applicants and HR teams alike.
