    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the good work you are doing in making this company big, however keep an eye on the workforce and invest in designing an effective career planning program. The most common question made in Interviews is: Where are you planning to be 5 years from now.. Just think about the answer carefully and don't stop asking this question after the interview.

    Senior Software Developer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at GFI Informatique.

    Interview Details

    First, there was an interview with the HR professional who contacted me through LinkedIn, and then the next interview was with two managers with some technical questions and some behavior assessment. Then we had one last interview in which the job condition was presented.

    What they are looking for are candidates that are both technically good and equiped with soft skills (stress management, clear career objectives, good communication skills and good team member). Being a developer nowadays means more than just programming in our own corners, so a developer that is both good at hard and soft skills is important, specially when dealing with clients and interacting with other team members.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked to explain the architecture of some of the applications I've worked with and why using EJB. As for behavior assessment I was asked how do I deal with stress and what were the biggest challenges or mistakes I've had or made in my career.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    The value they offered was better than I expected, and I was happy. :) It's important to know our average market value given our experience before the negotiation, and then try to negotiate and reach a good value for both sides when negotiating, since your salary is part of the value you represent, and then it's important to be satisfied as that is what you'll receive for the next years (it is also its' growth starting point). And of course, other conditions like health insurance are important.
