What’s behind your CV? What’s behind our promises?
If your CV or resumes stands out you’ll be invited to a first-stage interview, where you can learn more about First Quantum and we can get a better idea about your suitability for the role.
A first-stage interview
The first interview, usually over the phone, is designed to help us fully understand what’s in your CV or resumes, your past experience and future goals. We’ll want to get a flavour of your motivations, your attitude and whether we both feel there’s a potential for a mutually beneficial relationship.
Prepare to succeed
You want your first interview to be productive for everyone, so it’s a good idea to research First Quantum thoroughly, find out what makes us different and, if you can’t find all answers you’re looking for, make a note and ask them during the interview. Discover as much as you can about the project and team you’re applying for. Be ready to talk about relevant previous projects that show your experience and achievements match the role.
Up for the challenge of relocating overseas?
First interviews often include a discussion about relocating overseas. You’ll want to show that you understand the commitment required and have researched the country you could be relocating to. Some of our people experience three continents in three years, so it’s important to know if that’s something you really want.
Second-stage interviews can lead to job offers
Sometimes we follow up a successful first-stage telephone interview with a site visit and face-to-face interview. This gives you an opportunity to absorb more information about the role, working environment, location and culture you’d be working in.
More often there’s a second telephone interview with other relevant First Quantum people, who’ll have a different line of questioning and go into more detail.
After second interviews we make job offers to the people who we think share our priorities, our culture and who we believe will enjoy a fulfilling challenge with like-minded professionals.
