Interview preparation

Initial telephone contact

As a rule, the first telephone contact with you in order to arrange the introductory interview or to go through the details of your application with you will be made by one of our human resources managers. Please note that we may contact you in response to your application or also as part of our active search for suitable job candidates. If we happen to contact you at a time that is inconvenient for you, please don’t hesitate to tell us so; we will arrange to contact you again at a more suitable time. Bear in mind that we could ask you at any time about your language skills.

Questions we might put you during an interview

Think about how to respond to questions about why you think you are the suitable person for the vacant post, about your strengths and about what aspects of your CV qualify you for the job. Don’t forget that you will also need to be able to reply to questions about your weaknesses, your salary expectations and to other questions that will not be particularly easy to answer. Gaps in your CV are not necessarily a problem if you can explain why they are there. Be prepared to demonstrate your language skills at any time.

Your technical profile (le dossier technique, DT)

If you are applying for the post of a consultant at ALTEN, you will need to bring with you to the initial interview a technical profile that demonstrates your professional background, your skills and know how. This profile will be required in addition to your CV and will be used to promote you in-house as a consultant and to introduce you to clients.
