Each selection procedure may vary depending on the type of position, which means on the specific scope of work, responsibilities, professional qualification, etc. Below we outline how the selection process usually takes place in Burda Praha:
After collecting a sufficient number of CVs we judge according to candidate profiles for the eligible position. Candidates who best meet our requirements are first addressed by the HR department through a short telephone interview. Part of the preselection may also be the execution of a case study, which is later presented by the candidate within a personal interview.
Successful candidates who emerge from the preselection are invited for personal interviews. Depending on the eligible position, this part of the selection procedure is usually divided in two parts. During the personal interview you are going to meet the head of the given department and an HR representative. Part of the personal interview may also be a separate task execution, testing hard/soft skills and language abilities. Candidates are always informed about a non-standard-length interview. At the end of the selection procedure, in case of managerial positions, candidates will meet with the CEO Petra Fundová.
