The Talent Team will provide you with all the information and resources you need to prepare. The application process will test your thinking, working, and practical skills. Some general tips to help you stand out:
Find out about Vaira!
During your first interview, we want to see that you’ve read up on us, what we do, and how we work – for example, by browsing our website, resources, and news feed, googling press releases or articles about us in the news, etc. Many questions you usually have can be answered by doing some basic research, and asking educated (and informed) questions from the start will set you apart from the crowd.
You know what you want!
We value your motivation and ambition as much as your experience and skills. So be prepared to answer not only why you’re a good fit for us, but also why you’re interested in working for us. This includes what you would also like to learn new in this position.
We are a small, fast-growing team and work closely together. So if you clearly show that you know what you want, you’re giving us confirmation that you’re motivated. If your answer is, »I’m applying for this job because I want a job«, then Vaira probably isn’t the right working place for you.
Read the job description
We write job descriptions to accomplish two things: First, to give you an idea of what your job with us would be like. Second, to tell you exactly what requirements we’re looking for. We don’t unnecessarily bloat them with empty bullet points like „be a team player“ – who doesn’t think that about themselves?
You can prepare appropriately for each stage of the application. Here are a few tips:
- Before the application: think about whether you still want the job in 3, 6, or 12 months and which of the requirements you do or do not meet.
- Before the interview: Think about 1-2 behavioral questions – „Tell me about a time when,“ „How did you do X in your previous role,“ etc. – that we might ask you about each bullet point. Check to see if you can answer them yourself and where your gaps are.
Read our values
Our values define how we make decisions, how we work with each other, and how we behave toward customers and other stakeholders. As you become familiar with our values, think about which ones you identify with more and which ones you struggle with. None of us will ever live all of our values perfectly, but they are our north star in terms of how we behave and part of how we evaluate our performance.
