Recently, Scirocco Group Inc has added some new Web-based tools to support the agency's consistent testing policy; among them, Insurance Hiring System, which includes the ProfileXT, developed and offered by Profiles International, and distributed by Nordhaus Profiles International. Scirocco is also using the Virginia M. Bates Hiring in Insurance Testing Service, a series of insurance skills tests developed by Bates to gauge an individual's insurance knowledge and assess that person's skills against those needed by the insurance industry Cecilia Driza, Scirocco's EVP, says that the ProfileXT is a thorough look at the entire person; it looks at the behavioral traits and the interests of the job candidate. It gets at the 'hard-wiring' of the individual, she says. Using the ProfileXT, they learn a lot about potential new hires that they're not going to pick up during the interviews. Their interview process is lengthy. They'll have candidates in a few times to meet with a number of people in their organization.
