Keep it short, be specific and highlight the information most relevant for the job description. What was the outcome of projects you’ve worked on or managed? How was success measured? If you’ve held a leadership position we’re eager to know the scope of your work and the size of your team.

We read thousands of applications every month and even though we always will let you know as soon as possible whether we will proceed with your application, we have no possibility to provide any personal feedback on your application.
We conduct both face-to-face interviews and phone interviews – so if you are not living in Sweden, don’t worry! During your interview, you will meet a recruiter as well as the hiring manager and possibly a technical expert. Expect to go through at least a couple of interviews before the recruitment process is wrapped up. You may also be asked to take a personality test and solve certain work-related cases as part of the process.

If you can’t think of any standard questions, use your imagination (and your internet search skills)!
Before making any final hiring decisions, we always carry out reference checks and other background information if and when needed. The hiring manager makes the final decision together with HR and the top executive of the hiring department.
If we want to hire you, we will send a formal job offer for you to sign and return as an acceptance of the position.
