When you apply for a job, a corresponding questionnaire will display. These questions enable our recruiters to quickly match your skills, education and work experience to the job opportunity. It is important that you answer all the questions. Since the competition to work at VIPdesk Connect is strong, it is to your advantage to answer the questionnaire thoroughly and in a timely manner. Your responses should be written in a professional tone using correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
You will be asked several prescreening questions to better match your skills and experience to open positions. If you are applying for a specific job, the questions asked will be relevant to that position.
As a company who receives a high volume of good candidates for our vacant positions, for some of those positions, we have prescreening steps in place that may include an assessment. These assessments help our recruiters find the most qualified applicants. Remember, we are searching for the ideal combination of experience, skills, and education applicable to the position.
The application and resume review process can take several weeks when we are actively recruiting. If your skills and experience appear to match an open position, a recruiter may contact you. Due to the high volume of resumes we receive and process, we cannot personally contact each person who submits a resume for consideration. If you are not selected, your resume will remain in our database and is available for you to apply to other open positions. You are welcome to return to our website anytime to view other opportunities.
If we find a good match to the VIPdesk Connect requirements and qualifications after you have submitted your resume and completed any questionnaires and assessments, you will be contacted by the recruiting team and invited to a phone screening. At that time we will be more than happy to discuss your resume and job interest. While we would like to speak to everyone that has an interest in working at VIPdesk Connect, the volume of resumes does not allow us to perform this courtesy.
