1. trin

I første trin vurderer vi kandidaternes baggrund. De kandidater, der matcher jobprofilen bedst, inviteres til samtale. Som kandidat introduceres du til job og virksomhed, og vi spørger uddybende ind til din baggrund.

2. trin

I andet trin møder de bedst matchende kandidater vores kunde, herunder typisk den kommende leder til stillingen. På mødet går vi yderligere i dybden med stilling, virksomhed og din baggrund.

3. trin

I tredje trin inviteres de bedst matchende kandidater til testinterview. Som kandidat udfylder du før mødet 2 typer test, dels en færdighedstest og dels en personlighedstest – begge dele online. Vi går tæt på dine personlige egenskaber i forhold til jobbet og henter efterfølgende – med din tilladelse – referencer hos tidligere arbejdspladser

4. trin

Vi indstiller i fjerde trin de bedst egnede kandidater, som inviteres til et afsluttende møde med vores kunde. Du vil som kandidat møde din kommende leder igen og måske en lidt bredere personkreds i virksomheden, inden der tages endelig beslutning om ansættelse.
