Are you eyeing a position at Behaviour?
Here’s what you can expect from our recruitment process.
CANDIDATE ANALYSIS AND SELECTION
With dozens of new positions added each month, there is never a dull moment in the life of our recruitment specialists. They select the most promising candidates, oversee technical tests, conduct phone interviews, and schedule on-site interviews.
Depending on the position and the project’s requirements, you may be invited to up to 3 interviews and asked to complete a technical test. The recruitment specialist will accompany you every step of the way to answer your questions, review salary expectations, take your references, agree on a start date, etc.
If you’ve made it to this stage that means you are one of 2 or 3 candidates that we are seriously considering for the position (good job!) We promptly get in touch with candidates who were not selected but whose resumé we will keep on file.
The best part of our recruitment specialists’ day is making an offer to a new team member. High fives all around!
We want you to feel like a member of the team even before your first day. The orientation begins the minute you accept our offer. We will provide you with all the information you need to set you up for success from day one.
Talent knows no frontiers! Here is what you can
expect if you are applying from outside Canada.
FIRST PHONE REVIEW
If we have selected your application, a recruiter will contact you by phone or email to evaluate immigration and relocation options. Since we must meet strict Canadian immigration requirements, it is crucial that you provide all relevant information to assess the feasibility of obtaining a work permit (passport, date of birth, current work permit, citizenship, etc.).
You’ve passed the first hurdle! We’ve confirmed that we can move forward, and the recruitment process begins: On-site or Skype interview, technical test, second interview (if necessary), reference check, etc.
OFFER AND WORK PERMIT
You’re the winning candidate! The recruiter and immigration specialist will present the offer and go through the next steps including the timeline. You can expect a second call, to start the work permit process. You have questions about the housing market, cost of living in Montreal, taxation, neighbourhood, schools, etc.? Our immigration specialist will be your new best friend!
Packing up your life for a new job in a new city or country can be stressful, but you are in good hands! Our team will welcome you at the airport, take you on a tour of the studio and the city, help you find permanent housing and set up with basic services (banks, social insurance number, health insurance, etc.) The support does not end there, our in-house immigration specialist is always available to answer your questions about relocation.
Here are a few precious tips & tricks that’ll take
you from applying to your first day.
Don’t be modest! Your resumé should convince us that you are the ideal candidate for the job by showing off your most recent and relevant experience.
Keep your resumé simple, short, and to the point: 2 pages clearly outlining your work history is plenty (spare a thought for the recruiters who review hundreds of profiles every week!)
Also include information about your studies, academic, professional affiliations, technical and language skills, and community engagement.
It goes without saying, but make sure that the link to your portfolio works (don’t forget to test it in different browsers) and don’t omit to include the titles of published games to which you contributed.
Sometimes less is more: while it can be tempting to showcase all your work, only present examples that illustrate the talent and skills that correspond to the job description.
ROCKING THE INTERVIEW
We get it, interviews can be nerve-racking. The best advice we can give is to take a deep breath and relax! Remember that the interview is not a test but an opportunity to get acquainted and assess the fit between you and Behaviour.
You’ll feel more at ease if read up on Behaviour, refresh your memory of the job description, practice your key messages, and prepare your questions. Be ready to answer questions about your salary expectation and working conditions. The more prepared you are, the more confident you’ll feel.
