Interview day: how to get prepared?

Once you’ve been called in for an interview at Michelin, you’re already half way to getting the job . Now it’s time to strategize on the best way to present yourself to recruiters. After all, you only get one shot to show your best self!

Of course, you’ll need to show off your special skills and any professional experience you bring to the table. But that’s not all your recruiter will be looking for on the day.

During the interviews, our recruiters are especially looking for the personality of the candidates,

This is the time to explain what makes you unique and how you plan on using your talents on the job.

We’re looking for people who are open and want to grow on the job. The person should also be creative, dynamic and know how to take initiative.

Questions, a sign of candidate’s interest

And don’t feel silly about asking questions – in fact, recruiters consider this a positive thing. “Our recruiters appreciate questions by candidates during the interviews,” says Linne. “This is a clear sign of a candidate’s real interest.”

These can be questions about the job itself, the company as a whole or how your career can evolve at Michelin. Visit the Michelin Careers website before your interview to see if there are questions you can get answered ahead of time.

Most of all, it’s important to relax! Get a good night’s sleep beforehand, and leave a little earlier than necessary so you’re not stressed about being late. This way, you’ll arrive calm and ready to take on the world.
