No later than after the application deadline, the recruiting manager will read and evaluate all applications with the local HR Business Partner in order to select the best qualified candidates for a personal interview.
Selected candidates are invited for a detailed first interview. In addition to the recruiting manager an HR Business Partner, a specialist from the department may also participate.
The purpose of the interview is:
- to give the candidate insight into the job environment, department, opportunities in the department and the Terma Group in general
- to evaluate the candidate's professional and personal qualifications
- to give the candidate and Terma an opportunity to evaluate whether or not the job matches the expectations.
Second interview and personality profile
After the first interview, the recruiting manager and the local HR Business Partner selects 2-3 candidates who are invited for a second interview. During the second interview, we go more in depth with the job specifics and with the candidate's personal and professional qualifications.
We use a number of tools to assess professional skills such as the personal profile analysis, which measures the candidate's typical behavior and preferred work style.
We use the personal profile analysis primarily as a starting point for the second interview, to ensure that we get a full impression of the candidate. We emphasize thorough preparations, in order to hire the right person for the job, the team, and the organization.
Before we hire a candidate, we collect references from former employers in agreement with the applicant, depending on the position. If we offer the applicant the job, we will deliver the message by phone. The contract will be sent as soon as possible thereafter.
Applicants who are not invited for an interview will get a written rejection by e-mail. We do our best to provide candidates who have been interviewed with an oral feedback.
