📼Demonstrate diverse experience in a job interview! Recruiters at Light & Wonder look for skilled talented candidates with experience sometimes within the industry, sometimes from without the industry. But also life experience. Work experience and life experience are both important, as is your ability to prioritize and work in a team!
📼If you demonstrate solid experience in a job interview, recruiters will call you back! The hiring process has several stages and, if you do well, you’ll go through all of them. First, recruiters will reach out and do an initial phone screen and have you complete an intake form. Once that is done, you'll meet with a hiring manager or someone from their team, usually through Microsoft Teams, to complete a virtual interview. For some technical roles, they may send out an assessment and give you a timeframe to complete it. For corporate roles, you may go through a series of interviews. Whatever role you've applied for just ask the recruiter what that process will look like!
