HOW DO I APPLY?
The first step is to apply on the opening "iOLAP Academy" on our career page. Your CV is required because we want to get to know you better! We would like to see your educational background, any previous work experience you might have (everything counts!). Any additional courses you've had or projects that you have done during or outside your studies. Maybe you are not a student at the moment, but a self-taught developer aiming to make their way into the IT industry – share your Github and let us see what you are working on.
Besides your CV, we have added some screening questions to the application form. Sometimes it is hard to tell from a CV alone about your main interests, expectations, and plans for the future, so we would appreciate your effort to tell us more.
IS THERE ANY SELECTION PROCESS INVOLVED?
In order to achieve and maintain the best quality of the program, the number of participants is limited. This means we have to have a selection process to choose the best candidates.
The first stage of the selection process will be a brief phone screening with someone from the recruitment team. This is a great opportunity for you to show off a range of skills and how motivated you are. You should be able to demonstrate a clear interest and explain why you think you would be a good fit for the iOLAP Academy.
The next step is an interview with our tech experts and someone from HR. The purpose of the interview is to assess your previous knowledge, relevant skills, and language competency to make sure you'll not have problems keeping up with the curriculum. And don't worry – we are not looking for experts and you don't need to have an answer to every question asked. As said before, just show us your thought process behind it and motivation to learn and we're sure you'll rock the interview!
WHAT IS THE DEADLINE TO APPLY?
July 16 at midnight.
