All interviews can be similar. You prepare almost exactly the same: with a CV you know very well, a well done presentation letter… on principle, we grant you, all may look alike, but !
Our recruitment process, like many other aspects at Michelin, is unique. And our recruiters want to know what you can bring to your job, how your past has shaped you, and how you see your evolution within the company.
We have prepared some recommendations that can make your job search easier and increase your chances of success in the recruitment process.
Writing your CV can be a challenge, whether you are at the beginning of your career or you already gained experience. The resume is the first step in looking for a job. Done correctly, it will increase the chance of viewing and implicitly of being for the interview.
Candidates often rely on transferable skills when applying to a job outside their expertise area. And this is what you can do, too.
The telephone interview is that stage in the recruitment process in which the recruiter contacts the selected candidates following the CV analysis. It is an essential step and should be treated as seriously as the standard interview.
Rather than having you travel to our office; we are more than eager and open to get to know you through video. But remember, online interviews are just as important for us as in person interviews. Even though we are not meeting in person, there are still some things you could do to prepare before the interview.
In their recruitment processes, employers assess the basic, measurable technical skills and personal skills. The latter are more difficult to measure according to a scale, but they are observable; during the interview, the recruiter evaluates them as they are a predictor of your way of working and of your future interaction with the team members.
In addition to the things that the recruiter looks for, we present to you what the manager is following in the discussions with the candidates. We invited some of our managers to tell you what they would like to see in candidates, regardless of their experience and the role for which they applied.
When, following the recruitment process, the employer returns to you with positive feedback and a job offer, the decision can be stressful. Here are the things to consider before accepting a job proposal, including what to look for when evaluating a job offer.
Skills or competencies are the proven abilities that you develop through learning and experience. It is important to have a range of skills, as each of them will help you in different activities. As your career advances, you can measure your progress by looking at the skills you acquire and their complexity.
I expect a positive attitude, even if there are emotions involved. I would like to notice his/her real desire to see, together with us, if we are suitable for a long-term collaboration. - Emilia Oprea, Recruiter
The most successful interviews I had were those in which the candidate had questions and expressed his/her curiosity. - Alexandra Barbu, Recruitment Team Lead
I appreciate the candidates' curiosity, openness to have a conversation. With the help of the interview, I think we both aim to find out if there is a match between our needs, those of the company, and their needs, as future employees. - Mihaela Croitoru, Recruiter
I believe that the purpose of an interview is not only to make sure that a candidate is suitable for a role, but also for the interviewee to make sure that in our company they can have the kind of experience they are looking for. - Anamaria Gheba, Recruiter
The first job interview may seem demanding, and the pressure of external factors can influence your behavior when you are a candidate for a position. The success of a job interview depends on a mix of factors.
