Credit Karma: Free Credit Scores and Records

We are so excited to see such wonderfull companies joining us for our Tech Job Fairs and want to share with you! All of these companies come in the hope to find the tech talent they need who will become a part of their mission and vision. Credit Karma joins us for London Tech Job Fair and here is their story.

Credit Karma was built upon a singular mission — to make financial progress possible for everyone. So far, they’ve done this with free access to credit scores, reports, tools and education.

Everyone deserves to feel confident about their finances. The company’s job is to give people the tools, the education and the opportunities they need to make real, meaningful progress. Thinking about finances can be frustrating, but they're working to make the process simpler and easier to understand for over 75 million Credit Karma members.

But thye’re onto something much bigger. Credit Karma is redefining the entire marketplace. Far too many credit card and loan applications are being denied. Far too many people are losing out on thousands of dollars due to needlessly high interest rates. Credit Karma is here to change that, and they have the platform to do it.

The team is already exploring a few far-reaching opportunities — like the reinvention of the markets for credit cards, personal loans, insurance, mortgage and auto lending. Oh, and they’re reshaping the tax filing industry to be free, easy and accessible for everyone.

But most of the opportunities that lay ahead are still unknown. So are you up for the challenge? Then buckle up — there’s a long, rewarding journey ahead of the company, Karmanaut!

Build Your Brand to Get that Job

Whether you are looking for your first or hundredth job, you need to brand yourself to stand out. Almost all of the spheres are full of candidates that are actively searching for new opportunities just like you.

Standing out is not less important than your professional skills, as let’s face it, it’s very hard to be a unique professional that can’t be replaced. Hiring managers get tonnes of CV’s for each position and they simply have no time to read them and analyze in detail. To make sure you are not just forgotten you need to build your brand so that recruiters get interested in you. Here are a few steps we advise to follow:

1. Customize your CV

This is not the first time that we talk about the importance of having a great CV and you can check some of our articles here. However, having a kick off CV is not just enough, it should be the right one for the position you are applying for. If your education has nothing to do with it, instead you had great experience in multiple companies in the field, make sure to emphasize your work experience. Don’t forget to highlight the skills, especially the unique ones that the hiring manager may be looking for. In a word, understand your strong points for the position you want to fill and make sure it’s visible from the first glance, of course, keeping it professional.

2. Write an Outstanding Cover Letter

While taking care of your CV you shouldn’t forget about your cover letter. Just adding a subject in the e-mail is far from being enough. The cover letter is your voice that the managers should hear. Be warm, yet professional. Showcase your strong points while keeping it short. This may sound a bit hard, but you should give it a try and the result won’t make you wait for a long time.

3. Get Social

Do you want your future employer to see the photos of a crazy part back from school years? Well, try to google your name and see what appears there and make sure they won’t be surprised in the worst way to see some of your pictures or posts on social platforms. Try to show your interests by sharing and posting things related to your profession. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t have any pictures of your brother’s birthday party. However, you can manage who sees your posts so don't forget to use this feature.

Build Your Brand to Get that Job

4. What About a Blog?

While this can’t work for everyone and all the fields, it’s an easy and reliable way to build your brand. Let your opinion on the latest trends be there when hiring managers google your name. This will show that you are actually interested in what you do and can be a great help for their company. If you manage to get your blog famous, companies will come to you themselve.

5. Connections!

Yes, building your network is too important. Instead of complaining that only people who have many connections get high in their career stand up and make those valuable connections. Make sure to have your visit card with you. You never know who you’ll meet in the elevator or the cafe. It’s not like you should hand out your visit card to anyone you meet. Do your homework. Get to know the CEO’s or managers of the companies in your field. Use social media, you can even know their favourite cafes in the city. And when you see one of those people you want to make a connection with, find a common thing to speak about. Weather can be a great help anytime! If things go well, connect with them on LinkedIn when you come home and don’t forget to send a little thank you note with it. Even if you never come to work in one of their companies, just knowing them and having in your connections list would be a great help.

This was what we think about building your own brand. Don’t forget to check our Tech Job Fairs and join us as it can be a great way to find your dream job.

6 actions that Top Employers carry out to value their employees

There are many situations where there is a lack of understanding between employees and their superiors. In many occasions, the reason is related to the lack of appreciation. When employees don't feel valued for their work, they are less committed and begin to feel frustrated. This situation is very unpleasant and also negatively influences the company. Employees who are happy at work will assume more responsibilities and their performance will be greater.

There is still much to be done to avoid these tensions that can often lead to dismissal. According to a recent study by the Gallup research centre, only 13% of employees feel committed to the company. Top Employer, is a company that is dedicated to evaluate, analyze and certify good practices of human resources of companies. This is the second year in a row that PageGroup España has been certified with the Top Employer label for Spain and Europe. These are the 6 aspects that Top companies implement to value their employees.

1. Training Plans.

To succeed in an extremely competitive global market, companies can only survive if they attract the best professionals. Therefore, it is a crucial aspect to invest in the training of employees. Betting on the development of your competences offering the necessary tools to successfully face your current and future functions. In PageGroup, we offer programs at all levels, from the beginning of the consultant to management positions.

2. Create your own leaders.

What is the difference between a boss and a leader? We can find lots of content on the web related to this. As an example a boss tells you what to do, a leader inspires you to do it. But usually, they forget to mention why these differences exist. Leaders are not born, they need to be trained. In PageGroup, with the help of external trainers and the definition of the Leadership program, we want our employees to have the opportunity to grow, develop and create synergies throughout their career within our company.

3. Offer compensation programs and benefits.

Although the best professionals do not choose the company solely for the salary, it must be borne in mind that this aspect should not be a problem if you want to retain your employees. In PageGroup, throughout the career of the consultant, we offer a variety of benefits besides salary, telephone, health insurance, pension plan, company car, and other incentives.

4. They bet on the diversity of the work teams.

There are numerous studies that show how companies that bet on integration and diversity adapt more quickly to changes and therefore are more successful. Diversity not only refers to employees with different cultural backgrounds but also to the balance between men and women and to the adaptation of different ways of working. Diversity is one of the main aspects within PageGroup, a fact to keep in mind is that 50% of our managers are women.

5. Manage performance for professional development.

Employees commit if they feel their efforts are rewarded. In PageGroup, we offer an evaluation system that allows management of the performance of all employees. On average, our consultants promote every 18 months. Depending on your abilities and interests, there are several ways to develop your career within the company. Each quarter we review the technical and personal competencies to know where they are in their trajectory and how they will face the future.

6. Make your employees feel at home.

When do we show the best version of ourselves? Usually, when we are in a pleasant environment and we feel at ease. The environment that surrounds you is the right one, you perform better. For this reason, we should be happy in the place where we spend eight hours a day. In PageGroup we are proud of the good atmosphere we have, we offer health programs and we bet for the welfare of the employee inside and outside the office.

Therefore, after reading this article, there will be no job interview that could resist you. Do you want to know the 11 qualities that the interviewer is looking for?

1. Ability to develop ideas and innovate: This ability allows us to think about the different ways that exist to improve the future both at work and at a personal level. It supposes the possibility of optimizing the processes and methodologies of work in a company.

2. Productivity: It is the ability of a person to focus on a task while managing their time. In addition, it focuses on the search for learning in order to find the specific knowledge to solve a problem.

3. Analysis capacity: It is the ability to analyze and understand the information that is provided daily. A person with this skill presents solid arguments when issuing opinions and suggestions that help the company make the right decisions.

4. Management of new technologies: We live in the technological era, it is not surprising that companies look for personnel with this ability. The management of social networks and the domain of certain software are mandatory when using.

8. Manage stress: All work involves moments of stress, so finding a person who does not let down or block by the workload is essential to work productively. Being able to manage stress allows the worker to reach his goals despite the adversities.

He hardly surrenders and has an incredible capacity for motivation. Companies pay special attention to candidates who have worked on various projects, so do not skip a single one that will help you.

11. Identify and solve problems: A person with this quality does not sit idly by the problems, but seeks all possible solutions and tries to avoid them at all costs. It is very difficult to lose the north because of frustrations. As you see, not only knowledge is enough to obtain the job you want, but the qualities that are linked to the personality of each one. Begin to give another focus to your resume and get ready to do a good job interview.

The 5 most common mistakes in a job interview

The 5 most common mistakes in a job interview

Facing a job interview is always a time of excitement and concern and precisely these nerves can play tricks on you. We tell you what are the five most common mistakes in an interview.

1. Avoid showing off your achievements. It is right that you try to highlight the most important milestones of your professional career, but avoid nerves playing tricks on you and let your speech focus on showing off and praising you too much.

Instead of bragging about the importance and relevance of your work explaining, for example, that in your previous job you were one of the best employees, give a spin to your speech highlighting your learning in that position and your interest in continuing to learn and training in the field of employment to which you aspire. Always offer your interviewer the possibility of contrasting that information with the people you have worked with.

2. Pay attention to the interviewer's questions. A common misconception among job seekers is that they are determined to give an answer they have previously prepared and do not listen carefully to the recruiter's question. Concentrate on your interviewer and listen to every word he says, start thinking and compose your answer when he has finished speaking.

If necessary, respond: "That's a very good question, I'll take a second to think about the answer before answering." Good interviewers will appreciate that you want to take a moment to reflect on an adequate response before letting go of the first thought that lands in your mind.

3. Maintain prudence when the interviewer begins to describe the job. It is tempting that when the recruiter begins to describe the job, you want to tell him that those tasks were carried out in previous jobs and that, therefore, you are the right person for that position.

Avoid that your argument is only: "Those tasks have already been carried out." Contribute value to your work and give concrete examples. Tell him how you faced a problem or how you managed to solve a complicated situation. If you have already held a position similar to that required by the company, take the opportunity to compare it with that job and show that you will be able to handle the problems you may encounter.

Any employer wants results from people who are part of the plot, not satisfied with working for work and adding tasks. The recruiter is not interested in knowing what tasks you did, but what achievements and results you achieved thanks to your decisions and your actions.

4. Avoid giving answers without arguments. An interview is a time that the recruiter has to know your skills and decide if you are the person that best fits the position. It is the moment when they ask you about your aptitudes and, in principle, your word is the only reliable source that the recruiter has. So, if they ask you if you have knowledge of Excel, the worst answer you can give is: "Yes, I know the tool perfectly". The interviewer knows that these answers can be exaggerated and, therefore, are unreliable. In that case, try to tell a specific fact about a time when you used Excel to solve a problem at work.

Always offer the interviewer the possibility of contacting those people who can confirm your skills, give references and support your skills at work.

5. The interview does not end when you walk out the door. Few people remember this detail and squeeze the powerful weapon of the letter of thanks. An infallible technique that prevents you from falling into the forgetfulness of the interviewer when several candidates aspire to the position and who can improve their perception towards you.

Send a courteous email with a few lines to thank you for your time for the interview and make yourself available in case you need to expand information or learn more details.

5 tips an applicant should consider: TSJ

From the preparation of every applicant in winning a job interview to discussing techniques in answering interview questions, are you now ready to face the interviewers?

We always see your point of view as an applicant on how to get through the interview questions and what considerations does the interviewer have for them to choose you. Admit it, sometimes you have the talent but because you're not confident enough to express your answer, it hinders you to fit in. Or, sometimes, you're too confident to talk about yourself and experiences, still, something is preventing you to get on board.

Have you ever wondered? What is it like for the interviewer? What are the things they are looking when they interview people? We'll help you get ideas from these 5 tips:

1- Eye contact

An interviewer wants a connection. Why?

Your eyes can reflect your real intention to the company. Your honesty, sincerity and enthusiasm. Avoid your eyes skittering around the office. Get into that room with confidence and make your interviewer feel that you are being real with him, with the company, and with yourself.

2- Listen when he talks

Did you ever find yourself not listening to what the interviewer tells?

Sometimes, as an applicant, we think ahead- the answer to the next question or other things. We're unaware that our attention is not on what our interviewer is saying. They're looking for someone who can work with them on a daily basis and in the long run, it's a plus point if you show them that you're really interested in the position by carefully listening.

3- Don't be someone you're not!

Before the interview starts, most of us get thoughts in our mind that we are not actually the right candidate for the position and there are people who can do much better. That’s when we try to jump into someone else’s shoe just to impress. Well...It doesn’t work! Know yourself, know who you are and make them see that. Believe and be confident in your skills. Show them what you can do for the company. Everyone has a unique strength, so do you. Make them feel that you're willing to go extra mile for the company.

4- Ask the interviewer

Asking some (not unless you have one it's fine!) questions makes them see that you're thinking about the process of the work. Ask something about their industry or niche, about their people or anything related. Don't try to ask about the salary especially when it's in the job ad- it's lame! This will be a sign that you are interested more in the position than the compensation.  Your interviewer will appreciate if you ask a question that most of the applicants don’t.

5- Smile! Smile! Smile

Your interviewer wants to know you're pleasant to work with. But, remember, too much makes you look like a fool. They like to foresee if they will enjoy your company. It makes you even a better fit for the position. Wearing your smile shows that you're confident and relaxed. Bring your smile as you enter and leave the room. Your smile is your weapon!

As a job seeker, we all want a chance and opportunities. We used to travel from place to place just to showcase ourselves and make them see what we're capable of. One easy way to get you on board and start a career is joining Job Fairs in your city and our Tech Meetups Team has a lot to offer.

Mavericks: We go against the grain. We prove people wrong. We don’t follow the rules, and we love pushing the envelope. We’re ambitious and we have BIG plans.

Learners: No other industry advances as rapidly as ours. To stay at the top of our game, we have to evolve as quickly as the technology we work with.

Experts: We know WHAT to do just as well as we know what NOT to do. This makes us the experts in our field.

Obsessive about quality: It’s all in the details, and we make sure we look at those with a magnifying glass. After all, why settle for something good when it can be great?

Open to change: They say change is as good as a holiday, which must mean we go on holiday a lot. To move forward, we embrace change like it’s our long-lost family member.”

Credit Karma: Making Financial Progress Possible

London is the largest city in the United Kingdom with over 8 million population and we are aware that seeking for a job in a traditional way is time and money consuming. Let's shift your style- mark your calendar as we are glad to announce that this February, our London Tech Job Fair has a lot of opportunities and careers to offer.

Do you see yourself in the Finance Industry? Are you also a concerned person in securing people's finances?

Then, you might see your future at Credit Karma. The company is providing tools, education and opportunities needed to make real and meaningful progress in their client's finances. Here is an interview with the company team to let you know them better!

Sign up here for free!

Who are the creators of your brand? What do they do in life, what are they passionate about?

Our founders are Kenneth Lin, Nichole Mustard, and Ryan Graciano. Ken was the first member of his family to graduate college-the son of immigrant parents-and worked in areas such as data analytics, financial services, and startup management before starting Credit Karma. Nichole Mustard worked as a financial planning consultant (and served for a while as a manager at Pizza Hut), before being invited to co-found Credit Karma with Ken. Ryan Graciano was a technical wiz working at IBM when he was approached by Nichole and Ken about starting Credit Karma.

What's the story behind the creation of your company? What inspired you to start your business?

Credit Scores are a defining metric in consumers financial lives, and Ken and Nichole realized in the early 2000’s that consumers had no way of getting their scores for free. So in 2007, Credit Karma set out to partner with credit rating agencies to build a product that would finally let consumers access their own financial data, free of charge.

What's your current view on the market you work in? What makes you feel like your brand stands out?

As a pioneer of “free credit scores,” we earned the trust of over 80,000,000 members. And that gives us a vantage point that will be difficult for other companies to achieve.

Our business model is also unique in that no matter what new products or services we introduce to consumers, we're committed to providing it for free. With more than 80 million members in the U.S. and Canada, we offer a range of tools and personalized recommendations designed to help them make the most of their money – and ultimately, improve their financial standing.

What's the thing that you appreciate/value/cherish more about what you do as a brand?

We just launched a new product that lets U.S. members prepare and file their federal and state tax returns for free. More than one million people filed their taxes with Credit Karma Tax in 2018. More than $40 billion in credit lines have been facilitated through Credit Karma. In the last 12 months,  more than 10% of online personal loans and 7.5% of credit cards for millennials were originated through Credit Karma.

What's your company culture like? What is that you want to represent?

Credit Karma’s core values are helpfulness, ownership, empathy, and progress. These values guide our approach to all of our work. We pride ourselves in being a highly collaborative work environment, where ownership of projects is clearly defined, and co-workers are encouraged to work together to tackle tough problems. We also believe in providing a space where teams can engage with new technologies, and learn while they create.

What is your team like? How do you work?

Credit Karma employs more than 800 employees, over half of which are engineers, data scientists or analysts. We are an international team, with offices in San Francisco, Charlotte, Los Angeles, and London. We are an incredibly smart, dedicated, hard-working group of people focused on using our talents and capabilities to help our members thrive.

What kind of people are you looking for? Who's the best match for your team?

We are looking for smart, fun, problem-solvers to join our team. We want engineers who are interested in working with a variety of cutting edge technologies, and who enjoy working in a highly collaborative environment. We like to hire people who have a growth mindset, and who aren’t willing to take risks and fail-to-learn.

What benefits and perks do you offer your employees? What's the biggest plus of working for you?

Credit Karma believes in a strong work-life balance and puts an emphasis on personal growth and well-being. We support our employees’ growth by offering Competitive compensation, ample PTO and unlimited sick leave, professional development funds, classes through Credit Karma University, time off to volunteer, and time off for your birthday, as well as other benefits.

What are your goals and plans for the future? What's your biggest ambition?

We believe the future of personal finance lies in automation. Just as people are putting more trust in machine-learning to do things like discover new music, suggest products, and even drive, we see a bright future for machine learning in finance. Credit Karma sees a future that uses machine learning to automate and optimize financial decisions for our users, which will empower them to make the best possible decisions with the least effort.

Captivating isn't it?

Now is your chance to start your career with them because Credit Karma is looking for talented people to join their team and will help them make financial progress possible for everyone. Get to know the team at our London Tech Job Fair.

Prepare Your CV for 2019

Posted by | 13 February, 2019 | Job Seeker

Prepare Your Cv for 2019: TSJ

The year has just started and you still have plenty of time to make 2019 a great one for your career. If you have decided to take a step and find your dream job, updating your CV is the first thing you should absolutely think about.

The job market is changing very fast, hence you and your CV should be ready to meet new challenges. Not only you should edit CV for each position you apply for, but you should also adjust it to the trends of the year.

We at Tech Meet Ups, organize Tech Job Fairs and have a mission to let tech talent and companies that need them meet. And we also want to help job seekers represent them as great as possible. So here are some tips to give your CV a makeover.

Update The Structure

One more year has passed and you have gained some valuable experience to show. Maybe took some courses and got important certifications that could help you get the position you dream about. Bring them up! Managers get a lot of CVs for a single position and they don’t usually have much time to pay thorough attention to each. Make sure they see all of the valuable information you have.

Update The Information

If your career lasted more than 10-15 years, consider updating your CV and deleting some old information about the positions you had long ago. It’s great if you have worked since you were 15. Now if you are applying for a Manager’s position, no one cares about the job you had in the local cafe when you were at high school. We know that each job has an impact on our career and mindset, you can tell this during the interview when the time comes,  but don’t overload your CV.

Be Data-Oriented

We have talked about the major mistakes that people make in CVs in a separate article but it’s never odd to talk about being data-oriented. Don’t tell how well organized or what a great team-player you are - show them. These sort of things irritate the readers and don’t let them see the valuable data they want to know before they call you for an interview. Your own opinion about yourself is not what they are really looking for.

Who Reads Your CV?

More and more companies start using bots and the tendency is growing very fast. These bots are looking for the information provided in the job description in your CV. Consider using the same words to describe your hard skills for example. If in the past you have written only for hiring managers, consider updating your CV for ATSs and of course, don’t forget that human beings are the final decision-makers.

A Help to Your CV

Once a manager likes your CV, they are most likely to look for your profile on different platforms like LinkedIn. So, pay thorough attention to your profiles. Make them look professional and up to date. Don’t forget that professional platforms are not designed to just share a funny video or an yellow press article, of course, if that’s not related to your profession directly.

Is your CV ready for a great year to come? Then get ready to share it with the companies that might be looking for a person just like you. Tech Job Fairs can be a great chance to meet the teams in person and get you better opportunities to find and get your dream job.

5 Common Interview Questions: The Key Points

Every company is not just looking for someone who can do the work, but for someone who's willing to go beyond expectations. That's why an interview is mandatory for every applicant. This measures your ability and skills to deliver the experiences you had and on how these will help you to contribute success to the company. The process and your chance to build up your self among others.

Winning a job interview is the goal of every applicant. The STAR technique will help us but we should also know the key points of every question.

5 Common Interview Questions: The Key Points

Most of the companies are after your experience that is related to the job position. Make sure to give an answer related to the job position you applied- if not, make a connection in some way. For example, you were an online teacher before but applying for a Customer Service Representative position. If you think of it, there's no relation, isn't it? But thinking of the soft skills, being a teacher tests your patience which can help you in handling customer concerns in a more civilised and relaxing manner.

Aside from your experiences, the company is also after your personal background and how you can contribute to the company with or without experience- actually, there's no such thing as "no experience", come to think of it during your intern? During your project? Your presentation report? Your training- every experience in your education is relevant to the career you want. If not for actual experience- apply what you have learned in your academics.

5 Common Interview Questions: The Key Points

Without further ado, here are 5 common interview questions and tips to answer:

1- Tell me about yourself.

Don't mention what was written in your resume or application letter- they have read that. Don't mention your favourite food nor a favourite movie; stop telling the story of your life- it's not what they want to hear. Mention something about your recent achievements, your skills and goals.

2- Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?

A company is looking for someone who's motivated, hard worker and would stay for them in the long run. Hiring new people, recruiting and training consume a lot of time that's why they want someone who will stick with them.  Therefore, the interviewers want to know your career goals and how the position will fit your plan. Your five-year goal should fit the position you applied to. Make them believe that this is your dream job.

3- Which is your strong side?

Let's go and get focus first on your strength. You should be specific in assessing your strengths. Before your interview, make a list of your skills and categorized them into three types of skills. It will help you explain these traits thoroughly.

Three types of skills:

  • Transferable/Functional - These are your developing skills throughout your career. These actions are taken to perform a task and transferable to different work industries. (Ex. Problem-solving, Communication, Organizational skills)
  • Personal Traits/Attitudes - skills from your own experience. (Ex. Flexible, Friendly, Independent)
  • Personal Traits/Attitudes- these are skills you acquired through education, training or on-the-job experience. (Ex. Bookkeeping, Computer skills, Languages)

4- What are your weaknesses?

Discussing your weaknesses is like mentioning your flaw. Stop bragging about your own difficulties when you can address this without compromising your abilities. Mention your negative side but the company will treat it as their advantage because they will benefit from your weakness.

For example-

" I can't help myself to work hard sometimes..."

" I am a perfectionist..."

" It's hard for me not to double check my work..."

5- Why Do you want to work here?

Be knowledgeable enough about the company and from there, search for what they truly need and relate to yourself.

Motius: Designed to Always Remain Young

Time for big changes? Start with your career! Here at TechMeetUps we are happy to help job seekers find their dream job. Munich Tech Job Fair is a great opportunity that can become the life-changing one for you. We are excited to tell you about the companies that join us to find the talent they need. Meet Motius an R&D company, designed to always remain young.

The five founders of the company, Zied, Daniel, Michael, Philipp, Sören, were and are passionate about new technologies and how a few of them currently disrupt whole industries. Once they were all students in big tech companies like BMW, Rocket Internet etc. and realized, that it's the young techies who push innovation and really have know-how about new technologies. They realized that young people should have a bigger impact on the world, as these are the people who will shape the future generation of tech. That’s why they started Motius, a company where building things and actually creating/implementing products using the latest technologies is the focus.

New technologies are appearing at a rate as high as never before. It's becoming more and more challenging for them to keep up with that pace. Motius has created a company structure and culture that enables young techies to be specialized in the newest technologies, in every tech cycle. Their “talents first” approach enables the tech community to stay curious and create products with emerging tech with world-renowned customers.

Old and classical service companies focus too much on customer happiness and forget about employee happiness. They focus on the latter one and, with happy people, make their customers happy with that.

Motius: Designed to Always Remain Young

Motius enables growth for techies from every field and for companies from every sector by inventing and developing state-of-the-art R&D solutions for their customers. They are curious and confident techies that are eager to tackle complex and diverse problems and collaboratively work on creating products and prototypes. The team loves to explore, so they discover new tech together in a playful manner. They don’t just develop products, they find solutions for existing problems with new technologies.

Another special thing at Motius is, that they don't have fixed and dedicated desks inside the office. Rather than that, they have different rooms for different working modes: A silent room for high concentration and individual work, an open space were people can sit together in teams or individually - as they need it, a community space with couches for more comfortable meetings and several dedicated areas around the office for meetings and discussions.

Motius people with a tech background (or business background with a clear tech focus) that are curious and want to grow and get better every day. Motius unites the people who actually DO stuff and prefer that compared to just TALKING about stuff.

Besides a competitive salary, stock options and a beautiful central office in Munich the employees get 10% of their work time for learning and exploring new technologies. For a young company in the growth phase, it's not easy to invest this time as deadlines and challenges are always close. But the team knows that if they don't do it, they will lose their built-in unfair advantage on the market and people won't get better here.

And obviously, there are perks like great coffee, monthly team building events, sport’s groups, and all of that contributes to a great collaborative company culture.

Want to join this great team and be a part of their mission? Munich Tech Job Fair is the place for you. Grab your tickets and get ready! Tech Startup Jobs blog can be a great help.

What does STAR technique mean?

We always prepare ourselves to typical questions that every employer might ask us. We know that being prepared will also help us. But let's face the reality, who among us never had a struggle in responding to behavioural interview questions?

These behavioural interview questions measure your personality on how you have acted in the past and how you have handled complicated situations. Every employer or interviewer wants to see how well you respond to these questions as this will also define your future performance with them. This STAR technique will surely help you out!

Example of behavioural questions are:

  • Tell me the mistake you’ve done with your previous employer and how you overcame with it?
  • Give example where you did not meet the deadlines and how you handled it.
  • How were you able to implement a decision in a situation you were not familiar with?
  • How do you disagree with your co-worker?

What does STAR technique mean?

What does STAR technique mean?

STAR technique is a method you can use to survive with these behavioural questions from interviewers. STAR is an acronym that stands for Situation, Task, Action and Result. As a job seeker,  this will help you to give a thorough answer to questions. Now let's get into details and we will explain every word that stands for S.T.A.R.

Situation: Create a scenario in your mind where you faced a challenge at work or at school - or any experience that made you overcome complicated situations. Like, when your group did not meet the deadline of a project, or when you had a conflict with your co-worker; a misunderstanding with your customers. Be as specific as possible!

Task: Next, explain what was your responsibility in the given situation. Tell your exact role among others. Your interviewer doesn't have any idea of your history so make sure that they understand your role among others.

Action: This is the most important in the STAR technique. This is also your opportunity to highlight what exactly you did in that situation. This is your chance to build up yourself and be like the hero in every Marvel movie you've seen.

The important thing here is you specify all the techniques and skills you contributed to making the whole team survive or on how you could overcome this. Remember to focus on what you did rather than the team or any person in that situation, in that way, they can relate on how you became a big help to your team that made you overcome this through experience you had.

Result: And finally, the positive outcome. Explain the outcomes of your action and emphasize all your accomplishments in that situation. You might also want to state the lessons you have learned.

Follow the STAR technique to showcase yourself in a systematic manner. But always remember that the key to standing out in an interview is you being prepared and positive.
