Create my digital CV
What are the most important parts to complete in the CV?
A traditional CV contains just plain text and maybe a picture. The Go See Talents interactive CV is a lot more than that.
The basic data needs to be added to the CV of course. However, if you really want to stand out of the crowd and get through the buzz, we advise you to put extra effort into:
Taking relevant tests and adding the results to your CV
Taking the video interview and adding it to your CV
Uploading good quality photos of yourself
What kind of technical tests are there?
There are two types of tests:
Multiple choice test
A multiple choice test consists of a number of questions with predefined answer options. You choose the one which you think is the right one.
Some of the multiple choice tests are adaptive. That means they adapt to what you answer. If you answer correctly, you will get more difficult questions and if you answer incorrectly, you will get easier questions.
The free code test is a problem solving test. You get presented with a problem and situation and you will solve it by coding.
How long does it take to complete a test?
It typically takes 40-50 minutes to complete one test.
What tech skills are there tests for?
New tests are added frequently. The most frequently used programming languages are represented with tests and also very popular frameworks. As per October 2020, these tech skills are represented with tests:
I have added my tech skills, but I don’t get any test suggestions. Why is that?
There could be a few reasons for that:
There are no tests available for the tech skills you have added. Solution: rearrange your tech skills, make sure you have your core skills on top
The tech skills you added are misspelled. Solution: check spelling and choose tech skill from the list rather than typing it yourself to avoid this
I have taken a test, but I don’t see the result on my CV. Why is that?
You need to add it to your CV. Nothing will be added to your CV, without you approving. You can add it through the right panel on your CV or by clicking on the Test section and choose to add the result to your CV.
I have taken a test and I’m not happy with my result. Can I redo the test?
You cannot redo this particular test, but you yourself will decide if you want to add the result to your CV or not. You can also take another test. Check out the different subscription plans and possible add-ons at https://www.goseetalents.com/pricing if you want to be able to take more tests.
What happens when I click on the interview button?
You will be redirected to our partner RecRight, where you can choose to start the video interview. You can do as many takes as you want, before you decide to submit. You don’t have to start or complete the interview straight away. You can revisit another day and continue if you like.
What are your best tips for me, for the video interview?
Go See Talents has been using video interviews for more than a year and we have learned a lot. We want you to succeed, so we are happy to share our best tips with you.
Make sure you are in a quiet space
Make sure you have good Internet connection
Make sure you have good lighting (outside in daylight is the best)
Use your mobile device for best result (the recording is optimized for mobile camera)
Speak slowly and extra clearly (accents can be difficult to understand sometimes)
Keep your answers short and to the point (max 2 mins per response)
Be genuine and be yourself
Don’t be afraid to show energy and passion for your profession
I’m not happy with the quality of my video, what is wrong?
You get the best quality when using simple video equipment like in most mobile devices. We recommend you to do the interview with your mobile device.
How long does it take to do the video interview?
There are 5 questions in the interview for you to answer and we recommend you to keep your answers very short, max 2 mins per question.
Is the video interview really that important? I don’t like to be on camera.
The video interview is a great way for you to really stand out and showcase your personality. An interactive CV without video can showcase your skill-set, but not your personality. Personality is as important as skills in modern agile teams.
I have taken the video interview, but I don’t see it on my CV. Why is that?
You need to add it to your CV. Nothing will be added to your CV, without you approving. You can add it through the right panel on your CV.
How many photos can I upload?
You can upload max 3 photos.
What kind of photos do you recommend me to choose?
We recommend you to choose casual photos. Rather portrait than full-length photos. The best photos are very often casual vacation photos where you are smiling and relaxed. Passport photos are usually too stiff and impersonal.
