Preparation is key: Get acquainted with the company via the company website, social media accounts or recent press releases. Get to know who we are, who our customers are and what we do. Additionally, always keep in mind to think about your own goals and ambitions. Ask yourself why you are applying for this position and why you believe that you are the perfect candidate for this specific job. Try to reflect on your career history to date and think about the most important points to mention to the interviewer. First impressions always count. We like to see motivation and going into an interview well-prepared, we’ll do the same for you.
Conduct a test run: Try to avoid blunders on the day of the interview by checking your microphone and web cam as well as ensuring that you have a stable internet connection beforehand. For example, you could ask a friend or family member to conduct a test run with you to make sure everything runs smoothly. We usually use Microsoft Teams for video interviews, therefore have a browser installed that supports Microsoft Teams Web like Microsoft Edge or Chrome. In case of phone interviews, charge your phone the night before so your battery won’t die. We know this might seem obvious, but technology can be unpredictable sometimes and this will save you a lot of stress before the interview. If your interview will be in person, make sure to arrive on time and look for the entrance. Leave yourself some minutes before the interview to have time to use the bathroom or have a final check.
Dress appropriately: Due to the Corona pandemic, all our interviews are conducted via phone and video calls. However, when it comes to dressing appropriately for your interview, you should approach it in the same way as you would for an in-person interview. Whether your interview is live or via video conference, always dress professionally. Doing so will not only leave a good impression on the interviewer but also give you a confident feeling.
Create a pleasant atmosphere: When your interview will happen remotely make sure to avoid noises in the background during your interview. Use a space where you feel most comfortable at with less distractions. Tell your family members that you have an interview, so unnecessary interruptions can be avoided. This also includes turning off cell phones, closing doors and shutting windows.
Be on time: Don’t rush into interviews. Take 10 to 15 minutes beforehand to prepare mentally for the upcoming interview. Try to relax and have a glass of water close by in case your mouth gets dry from talking.
Last but not least - Be your own authentic self: Our goal during the interview is to find out how we match in terms of skills, tasks, mindset and culture. So being honest and giving us the chance to get to know your personality and your goals will not only be beneficial for us but also for you. At the same time, don’t shy away from questions, we want to be honest with you too and are happy to share insights with you.
