9 steps to get a job abroad!

The recruitment process normally contains 9 steps. In particular situations the process can differ as each client has their own methods and procedures. Below you will find the general steps which should be taken:

Step 1: Apply / Submit CV

The candidate is interested in working abroad and applies for a certain position by submitting their CV.

Step 2: Initial screening interview by telephone

A Globaljobbing consultant will contact you by telephone for an initial screening interview. During this conversation we aim to learn more about your experiences, requirements, ambitions and goals whilst working abroad. We also discuss our vacancies and career opportunities with you. If a match is found and both parties are interested, we arrange an intake interview.

Step 3: Intake interview

The intake interview has 2 objectives:
1: During this interview we want to learn who you are, what you can, what you would like to do and what your ideal company culture would be. The consultant will find out more about your personality, ambitions, motivation and your talent. A test could be part of the recruitment process.
2: At the same time we discuss the vacancies and career opportunities with the candidate. We give you more details about the jobs, clients, procedures, company cultures, practical issues, relocation, salaries and benefits. After the interview the candidate informs the consultant for which position they would like to apply for.

Step 4: Introducing the candidate to the client

If both parties are positive and confident about the application, Globaljobbing will introduce the candidate to the client by sending over your resume and personal notes. We then wait for feedback from the client.

Step 5: Recruitment process with the client

The continuation of the procedure depends on the client. Every company has their own methods ad procedures. But usually the candidate must expect to have at least 1 or 2 telephone interviews and typically complete a language, soft skills and computer literacy test. Occasionally a candidate will be invited to attend a face to face interview in The Netherlands, Belgium or at client’s location abroad. It goes without saying that Globaljobbing will guide and support you during the whole application process.

Step 6: Job offer

If you’re application was successful and the client has chosen to hire you, you will receive a job offer directly from them. Congratulations! A date of commencement will be determined.
