Our Research

The Guelph Selection Lab focuses on research related to employee selection procedures in organizations. Our lab is made up of graduate students (PhD and Master's in Industrial-Organizational Psychology), Psychology honour's students, research interns and volunteers.



Our mission is to help organizations make the best selection decisions in order to maximize human resources, and to help job candidates present themselves accurately when applying for jobs, so that they are able to find satisfying work that is a good match with their strengths and interests.
