This is your opportunity – in one page maximum - to tell us why you are applying for the specific position and why you think you are a perfect match. Use your own words, avoid using a standard message and repeating words from the job ad. Provide concrete examples to illustrate what you have to offer. Highlight your strengths and remember to be honest. There is no need to over do it - be yourself, that is the best thing you can show us!
Make it informative and have a clear layout. Don’t leave gaps, write it in a chronological order, starting with your current or latest position. Just like your letter, your resume should tell us who you are, make it ”talk”. We recommend a maximum of 2 pages.
Practice makes perfect! Practice until the story you would like to tell flows. Use examples to highlight your skills and who you are as a person. The interview questions we at Volvo will ask you will cover everything from what gives you energy, to your successes and failures. How you get inspiration and how you inspire others.
Be prepared for questions on your technical experience as well as your personal traits and competencies. A perfect match goes two ways and so does the interview. It is your opportunity to show yourself and your skills set but also ask us questions that matter to you. Read in and prepare the topics you would like to discuss with us.
As a company we draw our strength from different personalities, backgrounds, skills. Tremendous energy and passion come with our diverse perspectives. They are essential to making smart decisions, building innovative teams and ultimately making our company purpose come true.
