Executive Summary
The Myers-Briggs, Holland Codes and Strong Interest Inventory Personality Type Assessment
Use of the Different Personality Assessment Tests in Business

From the Paper:

"Business and industry have gone through tremendous changes throughout the last few decades. Competition amongst businesses not only in terms of getting clients but getting the right people to do the required tasks is unprecedented. The atmosphere has become more competitive especially in today's globalize world where employers no longer compete for resources - human or otherwise - locally but regionally and worldwide as well. Before, a public relations firm in Minneapolis could have its choice of different PR experts locally; and can even shortlist the creme de la creme of the industry. Nowadays, the same PR firm must look nationally and the top candidates would not only have offers in key U.S. cities' PR firms but London, Shanghai, Macau, Manila, Paris or Bonn's PR firms as well."
