We recognise that the diversity and talent of our people will ultimately determine our business' success.

We believe that the array of perspectives that result from such diversity promotes innovation and business success.

At Andrada, we treat all people with respect and dignity.

Andrada recognises the importance of reflecting the diversity of the communities and countries in which we operate – both on our board and in our workforce.

Tips for Landing Your Dream Job

To land that dream job, you need to be actively looking in the market and make yourself available for interviews or applications. The starting point is to have a high-quality resume ready to send.

Ensure your resume has all the correct details, dates and experience listed. Understand what you are applying for and what the company is looking for in terms of relevant job and industry experience. When asked for specific requirements, make sure that this is clear and present in your resume. Customise your cover letter per application.

For most of us, being in an interview is a stressful situation, if you have not prepared, you may end up forgetting certain key points that would have landed you that dream job. Most importantly, ensure you take a hard copy of the resume to the interview. If it is online, make sure you have a copy ready and with you.

Be clear about why you are the best possible candidate and have examples ready for the position, as well as clear examples of where you have displayed a required skill. List these skills for yourself and be clear on what you can add to the prospective company.

If you are applying for an expatriate role, understand what you are applying for. What does the respective country have to offer? What are your needs as an individual or as a family?

Research the specific industry and company. The interview panel may ask you to share what you know about the company and the respective industry, as well as why you applied for this specific role. Understand how the company is doing compared to its competitors and what makes it unique and attractive to you as a prospective employee.

There are so many potential interview questions available on the internet, which makes it a lot easier to prepare for an interview, irrespective of the position. Simply do a Google search, read the questions and prepare your answers.

If you are suddenly asked, "Why should we hire you?", preparation will ensure that not only have you thought about your answer, but also that you come across in a confidential and clear manner.

A behaviour-based interview is one of the most popular interviewing methods. You may be asked to describe your own personal experiences, which demonstrate behaviours that the company thinks are important for a particular position. The job ad should clearly tell you what the company is looking for.

Again, simply doing a Google search will provide you with a list of questions that can assist you in your preparation.

Prepare good questions for the interview panel that will clearly display your interest and knowledge of the company, as well as the fact that you made an effort to do some research on the company and its role.

Be careful not to interview the interview panel. Simply ask questions that you are interested in and that display your knowledge.

In-person or via an online platform, it is equally important to dress appropriately. Always dress in business attire, unless otherwise indicated.

Create an impression of energy and excitement for the role that you are applying for. Sit up straight, be alert, and show interest in what the interviewer says.

Assessment

Candidate Preparation

Being asked to complete assessments can sometimes evoke anxiety or stress. The aim of assessments and psychometric testing is to measure aspects of behaviour and aptitude skills in a standardised way. Measurements are also aligned with what organisations consider critical for a specific job or purpose.

To help you prepare for your assessments, here are a few top tips to guide you through what to expect and to get the most out of the experience:


To Do Before Completing Assessments


  • Try to get a good night's rest before your assessments.

  • Ensure that you are in a quiet environment and will not be disturbed.

  • Allocate enough time to complete the assessments, preferably in one sitting.

  • If the assessments are being completed on a computer, be sure to familiarise yourself with the use of a mouse and keyboard and ensure you have adequate internet connectivity.

  • If the assessments are being completed in an arranged venue, ensure you arrive ahead of time.

  • Read each question carefully to ensure you understand what is required.

  • If you require glasses, contact lenses or hearing aids, please make sure to wear them during your assessments.

  • If you have any special requirements (e.g. for specific disabilities), it is important that you make these known immediately to the organisation that requested the assessment.
  • Try to stay calm:  being overly anxious will not help you perform at your best.

  • Assessments should be completed honestly and spontaneously:  do not overthink your answers or try to anticipate the results.

  • In case of illness or a significant life event where judgement might be impaired, consider requesting the assessments be postponed.

  • Find out if there are any practice tests or preparation guides available for the specific assessments you are going to do, and complete these before the actual assessment.

Cognitive & Technical Assessments

  • These assessments determine competencies associated with reasoning and solving problems:  such measures have been developed to predict how people use various mental processes to solve work-related problems and acquire new knowledge.

  • In some cases, organisations might also include technical tests as part of the assessment process, which measures your technical knowledge as well as previous experience related to a specific role or task.


Suggestions & Tips when Completing Cognitive & Technical Assessments


  • Work as fast and accurately as you can because these tests are typically timed.

  • If you find a question too difficult or are unsure of an answer, put down your best guess and move on to the next question.

  • Complete the example questions to ensure you understand what is required:  these examples are typically timed to simulate the actual test.

  • Complete these examples as many times as you like.

  • Ensure that you have the necessary resources and tools to complete the assessments (i.e. calculator, scrap paper, and pen or pencil).


Questionnaires


Questionnaires ask about your preferences and the typical behaviour you might engage in at work while working with people and completing tasks.


Top Tips:

  • Questionnaires aren't timed – however, it is best to complete them within a reasonable time and not overthink a question.

  • Be as honest as possible:  there are no right or wrong answers.

  • If you require more information regarding the assessment process or next steps, kindly contact the organisation that invited you to complete the assessments.
