Below is the usual procedure for a potential candidate to get started:

  1. Submit a resume in any format (MS Word or PDF is preferred) to career@kallkod.fi
  2. We reply (we always do!) with the details (either we proceed to the next step or provide the details why we can’t do this at the moment and what to do to move further)
  3. Remote interview via skype or any other means  best suited for both parties. This interview usually touches on both technical (skills, experience etc.) and non  technical points (candidates career and general plans, what technologies are most appealing to the candidate etc.). There might be several such interviews with different people but we promise  to do our best to keep them to a minimum.
  4. Test development task (might be paid or not paid)
  5. Personal interview which might happen at our location or office or in some conference/meeting room which we arrange or at your location. There might be a group interview with multiple people in the same location, based on the situation.
  6. We do all the applicable paperwork (contract, visa documents etc.) and all parties sign them
  7. Getting job permission and working visa for a candidate
  8. Having productive and mutually beneficial cooperation

 

We strongly believe that the key to success is to have mutually beneficial relationships with all parties. Ensuring, from our first meeting to well after placement and beyond, that both candidate and client are satisfied. This is of paramount importance to us and this approach  continues with our candidates career development and our clients overall business objectives.
