Self-Reflection

At team.blue we believe that in order to be able to truly stand shoulder to shoulder and never stop improving, we need to build a diverse and inclusive workplace. A place where everyone can be themselves, where we can learn from different perspectives and where we can keep growing together.

Have you ever discovered you’re good at something you're not passionate about? Many of us have. It’s hard to build a fulfilling career on something that doesn’t excite you. Before you start applying, take some time to ask yourself a few of these questions:

  • What is something you learned that made everything that came after easier?
  • What do you enjoy more, solving problems, or pushing the discussion forward?
  • What is the most rewarding job you've ever had? Why?

Now, sit with your thoughts for a moment. Consider all the best elements of your experience, and let them come together as a picture of where you want to go next.

Why the visualization exercise? Your skills, interests, and goals are the result of your life, your experiences, your triumphs, and your failures. If we hire you only based on your skills, we’ll get a skilled employee. If we hire you based on your skills, your passions, and your experiences and perspectives, we’ll get a #team.bluer. That's who we want.

Your Job Search & Resume

Our goal is for you to feel like you know us a bit, and that you have enough information to feel like you’re applying for the right position.

Check out our company site. View our YouTube channel. Read our blog and check out our socials. The goal here is the job or jobs you land on should be at the intersection of who you are and who we are. So go, explore for a bit. We’ll meet you back here. You should now have a better idea of who we are and which role seems like the best match for where you want to go.

Keep your old resume next to you for inspiration, but start with a blank document and create a resume specifically designed for the job you want.

Do the following to build your job-specific resume:

  • Align your skills and experience with the job description. Tie your work directly to the role qualifications (and don’t forget to include data).
  • Be specific about projects you’ve worked on or managed. What was the outcome? How did you measure success? When in doubt, lean on the formula, “accomplished [X] as measured by [Y], by doing [Z].”
  • If you've had a leadership role, tell us about it. How big was the team? What was the scope of your work?
  • If you're a recent university graduate or have limited work experience, include school-related projects or coursework that demonstrate relevant skills and knowledge.
  • Keep it short. We don’t have a length requirement, but concision and precision are key — so think twice before letting your resume move onto multiple pages, and take careful aim with your information.

Apply Online & Interviews

Using our career page, take a look at what we have to offer while keeping in mind where you would like to have an impact — then start reviewing which of the listings match.

While the process may differ slightly for different roles, the same basics apply whether you’re applying for a tech job, an internship or a leadership position. Not all of these may apply for your role, but here are some of the ways we assess candidates in our hiring process:

Online assessments: You will be asked to do a brief online personality assessment, after we've reviewed your resume. You might be asked to complete more assessments specific to the role you applied for.

Short virtual chats: Before diving into more in-depth interviews, you’ll typically have one or two shorter conversations over phone or video. These will usually be with a recruiter, and are designed to assess what you are looking for.

In-depth interviews: We get excited about interviewing and take it seriously. Our process can be rigorous (typically 2-3 interview rounds, either over video or in person), but it’s also meant to be friendly, warm, and gives you the opportunity to get to know us better too. We’re guided by our goal of creating an equitable and inclusive experience where candidates from a wide variety of backgrounds have an opportunity to succeed.

In the end, we want above all to assess your skills and see if you and this role are a match. So we conduct our interviews using these guiding lights:

  • Structured interviewing: Every candidate is assessed using clear rubrics, and we use those rubrics for anyone being considered for the role, so that everyone is evaluated from the same perspective, allowing their distinctiveness to emerge.
  • Open-ended questions: We ask open-ended questions to learn how you solve problems. We want to understand how your mind works, how you interact with a team, and what your strengths are.

Grow

After your interviews, we’ll bring everything together from your application, assessments and interviews and review it. 

We say “we” because we take multiple perspectives into account when coming to a decision. If we decide that you’re the best candidate for the role, your recruiter will reach out to you with an offer.

Once you’ve accepted the offer, the recruitment team will walk you through compensation, benefits and so on, after which you are well on your way to becoming a #teambluer — we’re thrilled to have you!
