Preparing for your job interview can be stressful. We know. Especially if it’s your first! But take it easy. scandiweb has vast experience in interviewing specialists with different levels of experience. And we promise a conversation with no exam pressure!
Here are a few tips to help you better prepare for your interview and let you focus on the most important things.
The interview is for us to get to know you better and allow you to share that bit about yourself that will help us see why you’re suitable for the job. But it also matters how you present yourself, and we’ll appreciate it if we see that you did your homework and came to the interview prepared. A candidate who is prepared always sounds and looks more confident—sending a message that they know what they’re getting into, even though they might have no experience at all!
Many are afraid of being asked, “Can you tell us about yourself/your experience?” If you’re one of those people, you have to realize that you could use this question to your advantage. Take the chance to build the conversation so that it highlights your best qualities, and then align those qualities with the role you’re applying for. Present yourself confidently and show us why you’re our perfect candidate. So yes, think about how to best answer this question before your interview.
We have interviewed people from many parts of the world. International teams support the eCommerce services that we deliver to our clients. And we can assure you that we treat everyone equally and with a smile.
The interview comes later in the recruitment process. You’ll sit down with HR and possible teammates. If that scenario scares you, it really shouldn’t. We treat interviews as simple conversations with the candidate. Take it from us; it is not a test. It is a conversation—a chance for us to talk—in which we’ll learn if we are a good fit. And this conversation is crucial for both parties to appreciate the final hiring decision.
During the interview, we always appreciate it if we know that you’ve taken the time to learn about us and inform yourself of your potential work environment. It shows your interest in the company and what we can offer you.
What are we to talk about? A little bit of everything. 🙂
We are curious about your field and work experience. What responsibilities have you assumed in the past? We are interested in the specialist you are–but also, who you are as a person. What do you like and what do you do in your spare time?
Then again, we only have about 20 minutes for our little rendezvous. So we have to keep it straightforward and relevant for the position.
Can we do the interview online? Of course! We can remotely arrange the entire recruitment process—from our first touchpoint to onboarding.
Closing the conversation
At the end of the interview, we’ll let you ask your questions and clarify points that have not been addressed up to that point. Based on our experience, this part of the interview usually brings to the surface interesting details and new angles to the conversation that enrich both sides.
So if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask them. We’ll be happy to answer in detail and help you better understand what you’re signing up for. But if you don’t, that’s alright too. If you feel that you have enough information to know from your end if this is something you want, it’s all good.
After all, we both want to know if you and scandiweb are a good match.
