5 questions to our recruiter Magdalena
You have just submitted your application and are curious about what happens next? Or maybe you’ve found an interesting job advertisement and would like to know which documents you need to submit and what to expect after your application?
We have asked exactly these questions for you. Magdalena has been a recruiter in our office Sofia since 2019. In the blog post, she tells you how the application process works and gives you practical tips.
How does the application process work?
First of all, an initial telephone interview is conducted with our recruiting department. This is about getting to know each other and clarifying the basic information. We will also present some facts about it-economics and see if we may be a good match.
If we were indeed a possible match, you would be invited to a first technical interview with our consultant team. Regularly, a short case study must be solved and explained. The case depends entirely on the future field of work. If you are a developer, for example, you will be working on a coding case in your preferred programming language.
Which documents are required?
In the beginning, we need a complete CV. A short cover letter is welcome, but not a must have. During the process, we will also need diplomas, references, and certificates.
What do you pay attention to in the interview and what are your favourite questions?
In the first interview, it is particularly important for me to find out whether a person fits into the team. I also want to know how our candidates would like to develop and what they expect from their future employer. Of course, our company culture and the internal development opportunities should also match the candidate’s expectations.
I don’t really have any favourite questions; most of the time they come up spontaneously. It is important not to simply work through a list, but to focus on the applicant. However, one question I really like to ask is: “Which expectations do you have if you decide to work with us?” I think this not only reveals the candidate’s wishes but also says a lot about the “it-economics factor”.
