[VIDEO ▶️ ] Are You the Right Candidate for the Job? Tips From a Helm Recruiter

💎 Wondering how you can show up as the right candidate for the job?

📼 Press PLAY to hear some insight from a recruiter at Helm into what the right candidate for the job looks like in an interview. Alayna Sye, Helm's Senior Technical Recruiter, knows an applicant is going to be the right for the job usually after the first conversation. Find out exactly what will make you stand out, as well as the steps for the application process at Helm.

📼 You can be the right candidate for the job even if you don't check all the boxes in the application description. Alayna debunks this common misconception that recruiters are only seeking applicants who have 100% of the qualifications listed for the role. That's simply not true! There are so many valuable skills outside of the parameters of the job description. And, as Alayna says, oftentimes she doesn't know the company needs these skills until she sees them in a candidate at the job interview. Don't miss her take on the minimum amount of qualifications you should meet to apply for a job at Helm.

📼 What are the steps in Helm's application process? First, once your application is received and reviewed, the recruiting team will move you forward through a series of interviews to assess your potential. Some roles also require an additional assessment to see how you would perform in the role and also for you to learn the type of work you could be doing. Once the hiring team decides that you're the right candidate for the job, a decision on an offer can be made. Congratulations!

Tailor Your Resume to Be the Right Candidate for the Job at Your Interview

You can tailor your resume to the role you're applying for by taking a look at the job description and comparing it to what you've done. Emphasize relevant experiences on your resume to make it easier for the hiring team to see the value you'd bring to the role and hopefully move you through to the next round of interviews.
