What can you expect from the hiring process?
The entire recruitment process usually takes about three weeks. The process consists of two or three rounds of interviews, depending on your level of experience.
Our first encounter. Once you've applied for the job of your liking, our recruiter will first check your resume and motivation, after which they will contact you to ask some general questions to get to know the person behind the CV. We'll also explain a bit more about CRANIUM and what the rest of the process will look like.
2. First Interview
Seek the Match. During the first interview, we want to get to know you a bit better as a person. We'll discuss your motivation for the job, your skills and history, but more importantly, we'll discuss your needs and expectations. In this stage, we check if there's a match between you and our organisation's values and expectations.
3. Second Interview
Your time to shine. During the second interview, it's time to show off your knowledge. This interview will be conducted with a Manager and a Mentor, who'll give you a case to prepare on a topic relevant to your potential position. This way, we can test your current level of knowledge on the topic you're applying for.
Meet the CEO.
In some cases, we'll also invite you for a third and last conversation with our CEO.
We'll share the verdict (aka, the hiring decision) either after the second interview or after the conversation with Anne (our CEO).
Our top tips to ace your interview.
Prepare your elevator pitch and common interview questions.
This way you avoid getting tongue-tied when answering the classics like "Tell me about yourself" or "Why do you want to work for us?"
Curiosity didn't kill the cat!
Prepare a list of questions to ask our interviewer. Not only will this show that you're interested in the company and position, but it's also a great way to learn more about the company culture and your potential growth opportunities.
Don't be late to the party!
Arrive early for the interview to give yourself some time to review your notes and get into the zone. Running late anyway? No problem, everyone gets stuck in traffic sometimes. Just give our recruiter a heads-up!
