Get The Best Tips for Your Interview at Guru

Joseph Gomez, talent acquisition manager at Guru Technologies, shares his thoughts and tips on how to get ready for your interview.

He 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.

Joseph also shares the value of having a nice, clean resume with a good format. 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.

How I Took Action Against Anti-Asian Racism– At Work and In My Personal Life

If you've been paying attention to the news recently, you likely have noticed a sharp rise in Anti-Asian racism. Members of the Asian-American and Pacific Islander communities have been vocal in bringing awareness to the heightened racial discrimination they have faced since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, which, in some cases, have had tragic consequences.

If you are not a member of the Asian-American community, you might feel powerless– as if you have no say in the matter. It's easy to believe that your actions aren't effective and cannot lend support to your colleagues and friends from the Asian-American community. But that is not the case– in reality, there are a number of actions you can take against Asian hate that can have real impact, in both your professional and personal life.
