Application Tips

 

Here are some helpful tips to prepare for your interview with Tricentis!

In a nutshell: there are 3 things you should pay special attention to:

Interest, honesty, and authenticity.

What’s the best way you can show us your level of interest?

  • Inform yourself in advance about Tricentis on our homepage or on several other platforms such as kununu.at, xing.com, or Facebook. Read through the basic information: how long has the company been around, who founded it and what is it that Tricentis actually does?
  • Get hold of the job description and go through all the points. Make note of any questions you might have about the job responsibilities so that you can ask them during the interview. If any of our requirements are not clear, they can also be discussed then. Take the time to consider carefully how your skills and experience fit in with the individual requirements and tasks.
  • Think of an answer to this question: why are you applying at Tricentis in the first place? What is the decisive factor?
  • The qualities and values that you would like to see in an employer are no small matter. Think about what would be important to you in Tricentis if it were to become your employer. Which values should it promote? What kind of work atmosphere should it have?
  • Whenever you work under contract, it’s a good idea to be informed about your period of notice.
  • Memorize the name of your interviewers.

What roles do honesty and authenticity play?

  • Be honest if you’re asked about your strengths and weaknesses! This question serves primarily to help you if you are employed at Tricentis – self-reflection helps with your personal learning success.
  • The interview gives both parties the chance to get to know each other: is Tricentis a good fit for me? Am I a good fit for Tricentis?
  • Play-acting or deception is not a good way to convince anyone of anything. Besides, it isn’t very useful for either side.

Some further tips

  • Dress for success! To this end, select tasteful, groomed clothing that is comfortable. What is certain is that a shabby appearance does not make a good impression!
  • Punctuality – don’t be too early and never late! If you anticipate that you’ll be late for any reason, please call and let us know.
  • Politeness and respectful interaction are equally important.
  • To be safe, take your application materials with you so that you can more easily follow the course of the interview. There’s an added advantage: you can provide a copy to the interviewers, should they not have one with them.
  • Take any employer references along so that you can document your previous areas of responsibility.
  • Bring paper and pen along – even if it’s only for contact information.
  • Turn your cell phone off.
  • Take the time to go through your resume and consider the questions you might get asked about it – this will help you to prepare!
  • Questions, questions, questions – the more questions you ask, the lower the chance that you’ll be disappointed if you start working in the job later on.

At the end of the interview, thank the interviewers for inviting you. If Tricentis made a convincing argument, then we’d be happy to hear about it once again in an e-mail.
