Trust us, we know how exciting it can be to finally find your dream job and submit your application. But be careful not to rush it. Take the time to check your grammar, name and contact details, and write a chronological history of your previous jobs including a brief description of your responsibilities and relevant achievements.
The perfect candidate crafts a clear, well-structured document that concisely gets the message across. Think of your resume as a sneak preview of your work experiences instead of a trilogy. Highlight the work experiences that are most relevant to the role and fit the specific job requirements. Don’t be afraid to showcase your accomplishments and how you’ve impacted previous employers. For example, summarise the challenges you’ve faced, and how you’ve managed and overcame them. What did you learn from it?
Use your resume to drive us to your LinkedIn page, personal website, blog, or relevant social media accounts. The true magic happens when you build an impressive digital narrative, using a mix of relevant channels.
Make the most of your motivation letter by focusing on why you would like to fill the specific position. Show us who you are and what makes you unique. Our recruiters are eager to learn how your experience fits the role and what makes you tick. Tailor your motivation to the relevant job requirements and back-up your passion with examples that can truly make the difference.
Interviews can be nerve wracking, but we’ll do our best to make you feel at ease. Be sure to come prepared with examples that demonstrate your skills and experience that apply to the role. As we’re a data-driven company, we’re looking for examples that demonstrate your abilities.
Next to data, curiosity is key. Don’t hesitate to fire off any questions that prove your understanding of the role’s responsibilities and challenges. Gather the information you need to make a well informed decision if you’re offered the position, and above all, be yourself.
We are a company built on data, so we look for examples that evidence your ability. Curiosity is also very important, so make sure you have questions that demonstrate your understanding of the role and its challenges. Make sure you get the information you need to make a decision if you’re offered the opportunity. And of course, be yourself.
We’re excited to get to know you, and get a complete picture of your strengths and areas to improve. When you’re unable to answer a question, feel free to say “I don’t know,” as it’s impossible to know everything. That being said, have a think about how you would approach certain challenges when given the opportunity. Which resources and team members would consider to solve the challenge?
Be sure to come prepared and read up on our latest developments via our career page, blogs and news items. Familiarize yourself with the company and our values, and show us why Booking.com should be your next career destination.
Whilst different areas across our business have different needs, our interview approach stays consistent. We assess how you react, adapt and learn, approach challenges, and how your personality aligns with our company values. You’ll meet a diverse interview panel to make you feel at home and give you a good idea of what life at Booking.com is all about. We hope to welcome you soon!
