Our tips on how to tackle the recruitment process successfully

4 useful tips for a successful recruitment process

When you are about to start a recruitment process, it is essential that you have good knowledge of the company and especially of the position you are applying for.

A good way to do this is using the company's website. Learn about the company’s main activities, in which countries it operates and in which professional areas the position you have chosen might fit.

It is crucial to have a clear understanding of why you have chosen one company over another. Your motivation shows that you have thought about your decision and have an idea of the type of company you would like to work for. At the same time, by clearly articulating your motivations, you make it clear to the recruiter what you can bring to the company and what your career aspirations are.

In addition to the knowledge, you have acquired through your university studies or previous work experience, you have also cultivated personal qualities that set you apart from others - your soft skills. In the workplace, soft skills are just as important as technical skills, which is why we evaluate them during the recruitment process. At Eni, this evaluation is based on Human Focus – the tool that allows us to read and identify behaviours and skills on the basis of a common language and to link each to its own role. Is there a universal set of soft skills? The answer is no. The importance of a particular soft skill depends on the type of position and role you are applying for.

Prepare a concise but concrete narrative that highlights the experiences you believe are most relevant to the position you are applying for. Explain these experiences by describing situations and telling anecdotes that highlight your soft skills, such as teamwork or how you managed to solve a problem.

4 tips for writing an impactful CV

When writing your CV, think about the information that makes you stand out and that could be essential for a particular job. Keep your CV to a maximum of two pages! During the initial screening process, recruiters focus on basic requirements, and these should be readily apparent. Is there an ideal format? The answer is no. Any format can be chosen as long as the CV is clear and concise.

 This does not mean that you cannot be creative: bear in mind that for roles that require it, creativity is considered a plus.

One of the first pieces of information recruiters need is the candidate's contact details, especially your phone number and e-mail address, in order to involve you in the subsequent stages of the recruitment process. These details should be highly visible, so put them at the top of your CV. If you want, you can also include a photograph of yourself. It is not compulsory, but if you choose to include one, make sure it is a professional image.

Your educational and work experience is essential to give recruiters an insight into your career path. To provide information that is both immediate and well-organised, always list them in chronological order, starting with your most recent experience. If you're a recent graduate, be sure to include your grade for educational experiences that involve a degree or diploma. Don't worry if you're a recent graduate with no work experience. Include experience outside your field of study, such as part-time jobs you had to support yourself financially while at university.

In an increasingly global and digital world, these skills are a must-have. At Eni, a minimum level of B1 in English is required, so it's important to clearly state your English language skills in your CV. If you speak other languages, list them along with your level of proficiency; they will certainly be regarded as a plus! Computer skills are also important and it's essential to include them in your CV, especially if you know how to use specific programmes or tools.

How to handle your first contact with a recruiter in 3 tips

During the call or online interview, the recruiter will spend time going through the key points in your CV. So be prepared to discuss it, but don't rush it! Talk about your experiences, focusing on each one and trying to identify activities and situations that are representative of them. It's also crucial to articulate your reasons for applying, but always keep them in the context of the company and the position you're applying for.

Mostrarsi entusiasti e interessati alla posizione è il modo migliore per lasciare il segno. Ma per comunicare interesse non prepararti domande pre-impostate, al contrario, ragionale in base alle informazioni che hai ricevuto ed esprimile sempre considerando il contesto aziendale. Ricordati che anche l’ascolto attivo è una manifestazione di interesse!

Clearly outlining your goals to the recruiter is crucial at this stage, as it will enable both you and the recruiter to determine whether the position really matches your profile. Don't hesitate to ask for additional details about the role and to seek clarification on the content of the advert. If you find that certain aspects of the role don't match your goals, such as relocation requirements or tasks that don't match your preferences, don't hesitate to raise these concerns with the recruiter. Remember, it's not just the company that chooses you; you have the prerogative to choose a role that matches your passions and aspirations!

3 useful tips for a video interview

Before starting a video interview, find a quiet place where you can talk without being disturbed. Check your internet connection and use headphones to improve audio quality. Make sure you have a suitable background, preferably neutral, and position your webcam so that it focuses on you - check for possible glare from lights. If connecting from a mobile device, keep it in a horizontal position for better visibility. Having trouble connecting? No worries! Keep a spare device close by.

Try to speak in a clear tone of voice and maintain direct eye contact with the recruiter by looking into the webcam now and then. Be aware of your posture, make sure the camera is capturing you from the mid-chest up and that your face is clearly visible.

If you're in a group video interview, pay attention to how the other applicants behave and interact with them. Listen to their points of view and don't hesitate to add your own. Be careful not to talk over them. Here's a helpful trick: remembering or writing down the names of the other candidates will make it easier for you to engage with them.

3 tips to stand out while dealing with the Assessment Center and/or the interview

The Assessment Center (AC) is a methodology designed to evaluate candidates' behaviour in simulated yet realistic situational exercises, both individually and in groups. It is essential to take an active part in the tasks set and to be open to evaluation. In a group exercise, for example, it's important to assert yourself by putting forward your ideas and demonstrating your interpersonal skills. But be careful: it is also important to be cautious and to assess the context before presenting your arguments.

The aptitude interview with the recruiter is the ideal moment to go into more detail about your educational and professional background. Before you start the interview, take a few minutes to reflect on your career path and the situations you think are worth discussing to give the recruiter an idea of how you made certain decisions (e.g. your choice of one university faculty over another, or the reasons why you chose a particular job, etc.).

During the AC, you may have found it difficult to manage certain aspects, for example, you may not have fully achieved the goal of the group exercise. Don't worry, there is no such thing as a perfect performance! Be open to reflecting not only on your successes, but also on the aspects that didn't go exactly as planned, to show the recruiter that you have thought about the issue.
