At Degordian, every person matters. That’s why we created a selection process that helps us recognize the skills and the knowledge of every candidate, as well as their potential.
At Degordian we believe that every person is unique and their path to finding a job equally important. This is why, from the very moment a potential candidate first hears of us, makes further inquiries, takes a look at our website and decides to apply for a job position, our goal is to provide him with a unique experience in a well worked out process. Human resources department has a significant role in this process that we have been continuously building from the very start of our company.
Having in mind that every change and a new job means one step closer to someone’s dream coming true, we want to offer every person the possibility to get to know our company, but also to learn something new during that process – about us, our culture, people that make it, about the job and to learn something new about themselves. The whole selection procedure is thought out in a way that contributes to the development of each person. Each selection phase poses new challenges to a person where they can show their capabilities, knowledge, skills and experience.
A clear vision is important
The first challenge for every person is sending a motivational letter and CV as an example of their professional path till the moment they applied, as well as a vision of the job they are dreaming of. After reviewing all job applications, the next phase includes everyone whose story and vision to work in Degordian matches the profile of a person we’re looking for that specific position.
The second challenge for them is testing their knowledge – the most important thing in this phase is a person’s skill to present previous knowledge, so they can demonstrate they fit the requirements of the position they are applying for. This can be examined through various tasks, whether written or verbal, hypothetical questions or situations, and questions directly related to the experience of a former workplace.
Show what you are made of
The next challenge starts once a person has demonstrated his or her’s capabilities in the best possible way. Of all job applicants only a small number of people pass through to the next step of the procedure – psychological testing. It gives a person an opportunity to express their talents and qualities and to paint a true and complete picture of themselves that should correlate with the job they have applied for.
The last step is evaluating the overall selection experience. A person has the opportunity to elaborate their competences and former experience through conversation and different situations. Only one person at the end of this phase gets the job.
Learn from new experiences and challenges
We want each part of the process a person goes through in the overall selection process to be clear and applicants always aware of the point of the process he/she is at, so they are able to prepare for each challenge. In each part of the process we include people already working in a team a candidate is applying for and we’re constantly questioning and improving each segment of our selection process. We strive to make each candidate feel safe and help them learn from new experiences and challenges that they will encounter through their career.
We want to strengthen our candidates, just like every day we work to strengthen ourselves and our procedure. We wish that they feel like this is a path of new challenges for them, just like we feel each person we contact and each selection we have is another path of new challenges for us.
