What Is the Hiring Process for Energy Employers?

  1. Apply online: Submit an online application form, a cover letter, and your CV. Be sure to tailor your cover letter and CV to the specific position for which you are applying. If you are applying for several positions at different employers, you will need several versions of your cover letter and CV. This is time-consuming, but it is necessary as many employers will not even consider an application if it doesn't include the key words listed in the job description. Be sure to pass this stage of pre-employment screening by crafting a great CV and cover letter.
  2. Pass pre-employment assessments: You will likely need to take a variety of assessments, including a personality test and aptitude tests such as numerical, mechanical, or verbal reasoning tests. While the tests vary depending on the position for which you are applying, the most common tests used by energy employers are numerical, verbal, and logical reasoning tests. Numerical tests assess how you comprehend and use information in the form of graphs, tables, and equations. Verbal tests evaluate your level of English language skills. Logical tests require you to analyze passages, statements, or patterns and make inferences based on the information you are provided. There are many different tests created by various assessment companies, so check with HR which test you will need to take so you can prepare for the exam.
  3. Complete a telephone interview: This is a short interview with a recruiter or human resources representative. You will be asked about your work experience, so be ready with relevant examples that let you show that you have the necessary skills for the job. You should prepare a list of references before your interview and notify your references that you are currently looking for a new job so they won't be surprised when they are contacted by a recruiter.
  4. Complete an in-person interview: This is a longer version of the phone interview. You should expect questions that are behavioral in nature as well as questions that test your technical knowledge. While answering questions, keep in mind the core values of the company to which you are applying. For example, if you are interviewing at a company that stresses workplace safety, be sure to emphasize how you have carefully implemented safety guidelines in the past. You may also need to give a presentation, or interview with more than one manager, so plan to allocate several hours to this step of the hiring process. 
  5. Pass an assessment centre: This is your chance to shine. Impress hiring managers with your creativity, logical thinking skills, and teamwork. While you are competing with other candidates for a job, keep in mind that you must demonstrate good interpersonal skills and not appear overly competitive. At the assessment centre, you will complete numerous challenges. These may include but are not limited to a presentation, a group exercise, a role play exercise, a writing task, an interview, and a psychometric test.
