Your job application walkthrough
Five steps into the bright world of XAL
From job applicant to work colleague
What can I expect to find at XAL? How will my application be handled? These are questions that most applicants ask themselves right from the start. So first, we’d like to shed some light on these grey areas and give you some insight into our recruitment process. We also want to give you some tips on what is important to us about an application and what matters most. Our primary aim is to find individuals who are a good fit for our team, both on a professional and personal level. For this reason, we want to get to know who you are. You can make this as easy as possible for us, by simply giving a true picture of yourself. As this is the only way we are able to judge whether you are a good fit or not. This is the fundamental question that determines recruitment. Ideally, we wish to start a long-term career partnership with you. So, the basis for this must be right - both on a personal and professional level. Without a doubt, this is of mutual importance. Therefore, you should think carefully about the information you need in order for you to be able to make an informed decision.
"Through recruitment we pursue one objective: the perfect match. We want to be able to respond to the question ‘do you suit us and do we suit you?’ with a resounding: ‘Yes!’ And likewise, we want you to be able to clearly answer: ‘Yes!’ too. Only then will we employ you. To establish this, it is essential that we get to know you. And the same equally applies to you."
