For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: LinkedIn Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Candidates may reach me by email or LinkedIn for the quickest response. I can alternately be reached by phone. Things That Impress You In A Candidate: I am highly impressed with candidates who do their homework before an interview. They should have an understanding of the role and who we are; bonus points for those that research their interviewer and find opportunities to connect with them on a more personal level. I also admire confidence. If you have confidence in yourself, there is a good chance I will also have confidence in you! Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: I often receive applications via LinkedIn however no resume is attached. I collaborate with hiring managers from around the world and not all use LinkedIn as frequently as in Western cultures, for example, Germany or China. It's important to send me resumes when applying regardless of the job platform you apply from. I would also require a resume in either French or English. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: If I receive resumes in a language other than French or English, it's very difficult for me to consider you. Resumes who are completely disconnected from the role I have open and who don't have the necessary skill set would also be put aside. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

How do you know if you understand something?

I am a non-technical person working in an IT company. My colleagues will often tell me something technical. Sometimes I understand what they are saying. Sometimes I have no idea what they are talking about. Sometimes I think I understand what they are telling me when they are telling me, but then later I realize that I don’t understand it at all.
