The recruiting manager evaluates applications and selects candidates for interview. The number of interviews varies according to the type of job and the number of applicants. Typically, a successful candidate will attend 2-3 interviews before signing a contract.
For some jobs the second interview involves an assessment tool – in the form of a business case, an ability test and/or a personality questionnaire. When the interviews are over, candidates are evaluated and the best-qualified candidate receives a job offer.
All applications and test results will be destroyed after six months.
