How does our common journey look like?

- At the same time, we will provide you with detailed information about suitable positions and present you also the companies with their expectations, company culture and benefits offered.
- After our discussion, you will decide which of the presented companies appeal to you. Upon mutual agreement, we will recommend you to those companies.
- If the company expresses interest in inviting you for an interview, we will provide you with useful information about the interview process.
- After the interview, we will get feedback for you.
- If the feedback is negative, we will try to obtain a more specific feedback so that you know what areas you can improve. Alternatively, we can offer you other suitable positions.
- If the feedback is positive, we congratulate you on receiving a job offer.
Recommendations for a CV that can impress:
- Be brief. Try to keep to a 1-2 page format.
- Use clear and uncluttered visuals. Bullet points and dividing your CV into sections can help.
- Highlight your most important experiences and achievements. Introduce your projects and technologies used (e.g. programming languages, OS, databases, devops technologies, etc.).
- Tailor your CV to each position. For example, you can highlight your managerial soft skills for the role of Tech Lead, or technical skills for other roles, depending on your future preferences.
- Still broadening your knowledge? Mention any workshops or courses you have attended or certificates you have acquired, ideally with the length of the course (e.g. in hours).
- Let someone else check your CV. Author blindness is a tricky thing - don't let unnecessary grammatical errors affect the first impression.
- For both education and experience, give a time period - ideally in (mm/yyyy-mm/yyyy) format.
Example of a structured CV
Why write a cover letter?
If you want to get your dream job, it's worth writing a short cover letter when sending your CV. Just put it in the body of the email. This way you can distinguish yourself from other candidates and get one step closer to an interview. Give reasons why you respond to the position, what made you interested in it and what your qualifications are.
How to write a motivational letter?
Sometimes companies may require a motivational letter. A motivational letter is not just a simple presentation of your CV, but a space where you can show your interest in the position and the company and explain why you are the ideal candidate.
- Keep the letter short and to the point. The ideal length is around half a standard page.
- Start by briefly introducing yourself and stating what job you are applying for and how you heard about the position.
- Explain why you are interested in the specific position and company.
- Why you? Highlight your strengths, experience, and interests that you could utilize at the position.
- Avoid using generic, one-size-fits-all wording. Your motivational letter should tell a lot about you.
Tips on how to shine in an interview:
- Luck comes to people who are prepared. Don't underestimate preparation - think about which projects you want to present and refresh the skills you've gained in previous positions.
- Be yourself. Present the best version of yourself.
- Highlight your strengths. Focus on your skills and achievements that you can use in the position. Present yourself with meaningful projects.
- Your appearance is your personal card. Choose your outfit according to the company culture and position. You should feel presentable and comfortable in your clothes.
- Don't underestimate your own research. Find out information about the company and the position. This will help you ask thoughtful questions and highlight your interest.
- Be punctual. Make a time reserve. This will give you time to relax, collect your thoughts, and arrive feeling calm and confident.
- Smile and maintain eye contact. These small gestures will help you make contact with the recruiter and leave a positive impression.
- Remember that the interview is a space for you and the employer to get to know each other. Don't be afraid to ask questions.
- At the end, ask about the next steps. Don't forget to say thank you for the interview - either on the spot or later by email. At the same time, you can also express your interest in continuing in the selection process.
