Application process at Guru Technologies

Joseph starts by explaining the whole application process. After an initial application review, candidates are invited to a recruiter screening interview to introduce themselves and dive into their work experience. The next step is the hiring manager screen when candidates learn about the day-to-day and expectations for the role. Finally, after a couple of team interviews and a cross-collaboration team panel, the final step is a cultural panel when candidates are expected to share what makes them tick outside of just work.

Get to know Joseph

Joseph has been working at Guru Technologies for almost three years and has recently entered into a position as a Senior Manager in Talent Acquisition at the company. He's on the hunt for talented individuals to join Guru Technologies' Engineering, Data Science, Customer Experience, Product Management, and Marketing teams.

In this video, Joseph shares the value of having a nice, clean resume with a good format. He also advises to try not to repeat yourself; it's best to get straight to the point. Joseph reads every resume so that he can keep people in mind for future roles, even if they're not the right fit for the current opening.

The top question Joseph wants to know from a candidate is: why Guru? So be prepared to answer it. Have a look at the company's core values and just be curious! Prepare questions for the recruiters and hiring managers.

Diverse teams make everything better, and Guru knows this. Joseph and his team work very hard to reach out to diverse candidates and make sure to get them into the application process.
