We are happy to announce that our selection process has finally come to an end! We would like to thank everybody who sent us a CV, especially those of you who also came to meet us for an interview. We received a record number of 106 applications, and although exhausted by the time we finally came to a decision about our new colleagues, we were really pleased to meet a lot of interesting people and to learn some truly amazing life and career stories.
It is partly because of this highly positive experience that we decided to try to give back a little and share our experiences with you. We have collected the highlights of the recruitment process in the list below, and we also provide individual feedback to every applicant who requests it. Some of you have already contacted us and received our comments, but if you have not, and you would like to know how we felt about your application, please send us an email to careers[at]arboreus[dot]eu and one of us will be in touch very soon.
So the big Arbo recruitment facts:
We received 106 applications (actually, it was only 105 as someone sent his resume twice)
From 7 countries across 2 continents
We were glad to learn that many applicants were also long time users of the
EU Training platform
23 applicants completed our own psychometric tests through Talentsift and were invited for a personal (or skype) interview
Finally, instead of only one person as we had planned originally, we hired 2 people.
Bea and Áron will join us from September and will be introduced here in the coming weeks. We have been planning for a long time to diversify the team, and with Bea we will be also welcoming aboard our first female colleague and our new tech guru, while Áron will be the first independent film maker in the team and our content expert.
With the new, expanded team we are looking forward to seeing even more creative energies flowing, and will do our best to bring some amazing new features to our platforms which we hope all our users will enjoy having.
Thank you all once again for applying!
