Now that you’ve submitted your resume and qualifications, our hiring team will your review your information to see if it aligns with the position you’ve applied to. At this stage we’re looking to verify if you meet the basic requirements for the position (ex: Skills, experience, education, etc.). This stage of the process typically takes 1-5 days.
Things to do while you wait:
If the foundation of a solid nutrient management program begins with a soil test, than the foundation of your job search starts with a self-assessment. Just as soil test helps us to understand what the soil has and, even more importantly, what it doesn’t, your self-assessment should serve a similar purpose.
Why should you do this? It’s simple, because we understand that landing a new job is only part of the journey. When going through the process of applying to a new position, it’s important to consider the things that you may be good at but not passionate about, the things that you may be passionate about and would like to explore, and ultimately what tools, resources or environment you need in order to address these areas.
By taking these steps before applying, you can help set the foundation for ensuring that you start your position in the right seat.
When conducting your self-assessment, here are a few areas to think about:
After you’ve completed the interview process our hiring team will meet to make a decision. To ensure that we uphold the integrity of our process and hire the right candidate, we review your whole interview journey with us and solicit feedback from all of the members who participated in the hiring process before making the decision.
If you are selected, our Recruiter will contact you to extend an offer of employment and discuss steps for beginning your employment.
If a soil test is the foundation of a solid nutrient management program than the interview is our crop and soil recommendations in action. In other words, our interviews are where we do the heavy lifting. At this stage of our process we want to get to know you and we want you to get to know us. Depending on the role the process may vary, but they all have the same goal: to make sure you end up in the right seat. One of the ways that we do that is by creating an interview experience that allows for both parties to have open, authentic and insightful conversations.
At the end of your interview we want to make sure that we all walk away knowing the important things that will allow both parties to make the best decision. Some of those important things include:
We’ve also incorporated a variety of different elements into our interview process such as:
If your skills and experience appear to be a potential match to the position our Recruiter will contact you via phone or email to schedule a phone screen. Our phone screens are typically 30 minute calls where we ask you a series of questions designed to verify you meet the basic requirements of the position and it also serves as an introduction between the organization and the candidate.
This is a short, but important stage so it’s best to approach it the same way you would an interview: be clear about your experience, skills and knowledge, be prepared to discuss your motivations for pursuing the position and make sure you’re in an environment that is suitable for us to speak.
The first stage of our process begins with submitting your Resume to our hiring team. This will lay the groundwork for our team to get an overview of your skills, experience and professional background so we strongly encourage you to present a resume that accurately reflects who you are.
Here are a few resume tips to help you put your best foot forward:
A note on Cover letters, transcripts, etc. – These are completely optional and have no weight on our evaluation if you do or don’t include them. However, if you choose to do so be sure to detail information that places context to your resume and gives us a better understanding of your background.
