Even if your next step in a professional career may seem all lined-up, life can throw some curveballs. This can happen to everyone, even if you’re a seasoned IT expert such as Marek. His job hunt is today’s case study!
Marek, an experienced DevOps Engineer/SRE, faced the challenge of finding a new job after ending his contract with the previous company. His experience included demanding projects, and his professional preferences were directed towards international corporations.
Marek was careful when choosing an employer, preferring long-term relationships with companies. Despite going through a multi-stage recruitment process and accepting the offer, he was surprised by the company’s withdrawal due to internal changes.
Faced with this situation, Marek asked us for help in finding a new, interesting and reliable offer that would not cost him another waste of time, which became a priority because he wanted to quickly start a new professional challenge.
That’s where Skillhunt came in!
Our first step was to collect detailed information about Marek. We conducted an in-depth analysis of his professional experience, motivation and achievements, especially focusing on the complexity of the projects he completed. In addition, we interviewed Marek to understand his expectations from a potential employer. We were interested not only in the type of projects or responsibilities, but also in the organizational culture, team, salary and benefits.
It turned out that Marek was looking for a dynamic company where the team is full of experienced employees that create an inspiring environment for sharing knowledge and development. With this information, we were able to focus our search among our customers, trying to find the perfect match.
It didn’t last long, because our client, one of the dynamic scale-ups in the logistics industry and also a market leader, had been looking for an experienced person for the position of Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) for a long time.
We presented Marek as the ideal candidate, taking into account his experience, skills and expectations. We organized a recruitment meeting in two stages, allowing Marek to demonstrate his practical skills and provide in-depth information regarding his experience.
As a result, only a week after Marek contacted us, he started cooperation with a new employer. Our meticulous analysis of Marek’s needs and ability to match him with the ideal employer accelerated the process of finding a new job. Marek not only avoided temporary unemployment, but also joined a team that met his expectations and provided appropriate professional challenges.
