Firstly, let’s not call it an interview – let’s call it a dialogue. While it’s important for us to check if you’re a good fit for us, it is also important for you to evaluate if Lemax is the right place for you. That is why this will be a 60-90 minute conversation with one of our recruiters in which both of you will get a chance to answer each other’s questions and find out if we’re a good match.
We will start by giving you a short intro about us so that you’ll know who’s sitting on other side of the table and paint a better picture of what we do. Then we will try to get to know you better by asking you some questions, and you can feel free to do the same. If we can, we will give you feedback right away, or get back to you in a few days and decide on our next steps.
What kinds of questions can I expect?
If you look at our company values, you will see what is important to us. Those are the things that we also value in a candidate.
We want to become the world’s leading tour operator software, and in order to do that, we want to keep on growing – both as a business and as individuals. We believe the best way to achieve this goal is to constantly be learning something new – from books, courses, other people and one’s own mistakes. To look for opportunities that challenge us. To be self-reflective and open to suggestions from others.
We see how far this approach has gotten us, which is why it’s become part of our culture. Before you come to meet us for the first time, we urge you to ask yourself these questions:
- When was the last time I read a book/watched a video/took a course related to my professional career?
- If I could choose any education in the world, free of charge, what would it be?
- What set of skills would I like to develop?
- What are some of the most significant learning experiences that I’ve had in the past couple of months?
- What accomplishment am I most proud of and what was my unique contribution to it?
- What is my most recent professional setback and what role did I play in causing it? What did I learn from that?
Our goal is not to inspect your flaws and weaknesses – we all have them – but to find out what you do about them.
