      Let’s get ready for the interview!

      You are just about to take part in online interview with one of our employees. An interview is a bit like a first date. Yes, a bit stressful, but full of expectations – on both sides, and the aim of this meeting is to get to know each other. Remember that the first impression is the key impression – in most cases it can impact your chances to succeed. Therefore, get ready for this meeting. Be natural, but leave improvising aside. Here are some tips.

      1. Get acquainted with the communicator we use (you will find this information in the invitation to the interview).

      Good advice #1: before a meeting with us, have a meeting with your friends. It’s the best way to get used to being on camera and get a positive feedback from people you trust before the official interview.

      Good advice #2: click many options beforehand to check what they are doing, find the app’s menu, learn to mute your mic – all so you know where to find useful options during the meeting.

      2. Arrange the setting and show yourself in a favourable light.

      Good advice #1: carry out the test interview from the place where you will talk with us (best if it can be the same time of the day). In this way you can see in the background all we will see later on and to find the best arrangement for you!

      Good advice #2: for the comfort of both sides, take care of proper lightning – both a very bright face and a shade instead of you will impact your impression.

      1. Inform your household members of the date and time of your interview. We are open to meeting new people, but think whether you want to introduce to us all your family at the start. A „do not disturb” sign on your door can help with that.

      Good advice: if something unforeseen occurs (e.g. your dog starts to bark loudly), don’t panic, face it! Just master the situation. Let us know about the problem and solve it as fast as you can. Bringing the stressful situation under control may have a positive impact on your assessment.

      2. Mute the applications which may hinder the conversation. Remember also to mute your phone.

      Good advice: but have your phone within reach It may prove handy in case of technical problems. Also you should be able to reach if we had to contact you (accidents happen on both sides!).

      3. Remember that it’s a video call, not a phone call!

      Good advice: during conversation, look into the camera or at the recruiter, not at the things behind the computer. Also do not jump on different apps in your computer (trust us, we can see that!). If you have to check something important, let us know what you are looking for and we will give you time for it.

      1. Have a sheet of paper, a pen and… a glass of water within reach.

      Good advice: write down questions you would like to ask to the recruiter. You may forget them when under stress. Appropriate preparations may impact your impression in a god way.

      2. Dress up!

      Good advice: an online interview is still an interview. Remember that the first impression is made only once. Business casual dress code will be the best – choose a plain shirt, a jacket or an elegant top.

      1. Be punctual!

      Good advice: Join the meeting 5 minutes before the scheduled time. In case of technical problems, you will manage to solve them or inform us about them. Nothing ruins the atmosphere like starting a meeting with „sorry I’m late!”. Even if your computer will have an unexpected update, but we will know about it earlier, it’s gonna be a different situation.

      Remember that people on the other side of the screen want to meet you and check whether you can blend in with our teams. You can do the same! Get to know your future responsibilities and your career path. If you have any questions, don’t be afraid to ask them. Good luck!

      What will we be talking about during the meeting?
      For us, interview is not a contest with tricky question. We want to get to know you and we want you to get to know us. Prepare for the meeting, as we for sure ask you about your strengths and areas in which you feel you are good. If you can give examples to support your skills, it will be a great asset. The recruiter may also ask you how you behave in difficult situations, or if you have ever been in such situations, and how you managed to cope with. Remember that we have a shared goal – to discover your true potential.

      STAR model

      STAR model may be helpful in preparation for the interview. In case of questions on your hitherto behaviour e.g. in difficult situations, you may build your answer on the elements:

      Interview is also a good moment for the manager to learn about your aspirations, expectations and motivation behind your intention to join Capgemini.
       
      Remember that conversation means dialogue, so if you want to learn more on the job description or working style of a given team, this is a good time to ask questions.
