The Interview

Have you been invited to a job interview? It’s time to show the best of yourself in an interview. This is what you can expect during a job interview at Hudson.

A job interview at Hudson

You may have come for an interview with us for various reasons:  you have applied for a job at a company that employs us as an HR partner, you are interested in a job at Hudson itself or you are looking for help in finding a new challenge. You’ve made the right decision because Hudson is a partner of integrity for both employers and candidates.

The job interview: a dialogue

You may have an image of a job interview as a stressful experience. Perhaps you have the impression that it is some kind of interrogation where you have to present yourself in the best possible light and therefore cannot be yourself completely. The way we see it, nothing could be further from the truth.

A job interview at Hudson is a dialogue. We ask questions to assess your personality, skills and competences but we are just as open to questions from you. We want to get to know you as well as possible. Not just to find out if you’re the right candidate for the job you have applied for but possibly also for a different challenge, should this position prove unsuitable for you.

We want what's best for you

As an organisation active in a wide range of HR services, we do more than merely assess whether you are the right candidate for a particular position. Above all, we want to inform and advise you. In this way, we try to help you progress further in your career.

In concrete terms, this means that we not only focus on your career but also on you as a person. We offer you personal advice on how to enrich your competences and develop yourself further. Moreover, at Hudson, we go beyond merely giving advice.

We work with an extensive network of employers, among whom we can find the best match for your capacities and personality. Together we ensure that your career moves in a direction that makes you happy.

Giving a job interview

Prepare yourself properly

Proper preparation for a job interview goes a long way. It shows that you have the necessary interest in and commitment towards the application process. There are three important aspects to this:

  1. Know yourself - know what your strengths are, which skills you have mastered well and what is important for you in a job. Do not forget to reflect honestly on your points of improvement.
  2. Know the employer - know the company you are applying to. Find out what the company does, what kind of activities it carries out and what its history is.
  3. Know the vacancy - someone who properly understands what he or she is applying for has a clear advantage over other candidates. Read through the vacancy carefully and make sure you understand what the job involves.

It is always a good idea to write down any questions you may have about the job, the employer and the position you are applying for.

During the interview

When you go to a job interview, make sure you are well-rested. Only then can you present yourself in the best possible light. Answer the questions you are asked and take the opportunity to ask questions about the job, the work environment and the employer. Be sincere and honest. This ensures that you do not convey a false image of yourself, no unrealistic expectations are created and we can guide you better towards a position and organisation that suits you best.

After the job interview

Transparent and clear communication after a job interview is very important to us. We are also happy to provide you with feedback on the interview and advise you regarding your further growth potential. In this way, you get the chance to know yourself even better.

We always offer you a clear view of the possible next steps. If your application is not considered further for a particular application procedure, we can always help you find other relevant vacancies within our network.
