Interview and salary


Congratulations on your successful application. The job interview is now about establishing the right personal impression. The flow of an interview serves as the primary source of support for both your orientation and preparation. We will also gladly prepare you for this situation in an individual discussion or workshop.

» Structure / flow of the interview


An increasing number of recruiters ask the candidates some "tricky" questions called "brain teasers", which is less about a correct result and more about the way in which the solution is found.
