This interview lasts approximately one hour, and the goal is to see if your competency and behavior matches what our client is looking for. Next step is an interview with the client in the company you will be working at, and in some cases we will do a reference check. Afterwards we, together with the client, will do an assessment of the candidates and offer the job to one of the candidates. All the candidates will get feedback after the process is ended.
