Here’s what to expect from this episode
Are you applying for jobs and still waiting to hear back? Maybe you’re overwhelmed or apprehensive about the hiring process because it’s so unlike what you’re used to. While landing a corporate job is vastly different than in industries such as education, don’t let this discourage you.
In this episode, I’m reviewing the hiring process for corporate instructional design. We’ll go through each phase of the process and what happens after receiving an offer so that you can level set your expectations as you apply and work to get your first job in corporate ID.
- How long it takes to find a corporate job
- The initial interview with a recruiter
- The formal interview with the hiring manager
- Additional meetings with management and peers
- Receiving an offer and what happens next
- How many jobs you need to apply for
How do you feel about the corporate hiring process? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Join our Facebook group, and let’s discuss!
