Our recruitment process
Valeo’s recruitment process takes place over several stages, from pre-selection to interviews to onboarding once hired, and is specific to each country.
Below are some tips to help you improve your chances of joining Valeo!
Understand the Job
An important part of interview preparation is to take the time to review the job content and to get some information about Valeo. As you review the job content (available on valeo.com), make a list of the skills, knowledge, and qualities that you have and that are required for success in the job.
Anticipate and practice
Take the time to practice answering questions you will probably be asked during a job interview. You can anticipate the majority of the questions you will be asked - “How would you describe yourself?”, “Why do you think you would be great for this job?”, “What’s a tough problem you’ve solved?”... This will give you a chance to prepare and practice answers, and will also help calm your nerves.
Listen and ask questions
From the very beginning of the interview, your interviewer is giving you information, either directly or indirectly. It's important to listen, pay attention to all details and to ask questions. You're building a relationship with the interviewer rather than just providing responses to questions.
We want to understand your background and your motivations. Remember we’re not only evaluating your technical ability, but also your soft skills such as how you approach problems and try to solve them. You are unique, it’s time to show it!
Speak with data
Every question should be ideally answered with an example that demonstrates you can do what you’re being asked about.
Don't be discouraged if you do not get the job
Remember that there are probably many applicants and only one will get the job. After having been interviewed, ask for a proper feedback about why you did not get the position. Learn from the experience and aim to be better at the next interview.
