I have an interview. What can I do to prepare?
"Come prepared to market yourself," says one Fidelity recruiter. "Instead of just listing your strengths, describe what you have accomplished as a result of those strengths. Cite specific examples."
Most interviews at Fidelity are behavior-based. This means our recruiters and hiring managers will ask about specific professional situations you've been in and your accomplishments. For example, if you mention that you're efficient, you'll be asked to provide examples from your work history that illustrate this.
Fidelity recruiters suggest you:
- Familiarize yourself with the content of your resume
- Review the job description to determine how your background applies
- Be prepared to cite examples of your key professional accomplishments or related academic work
- Read some basic information about Fidelity's culture, history, companies, etc.
- View a video about innovations at Fidelity called Fidelity Firsts
- Ask your recruiter for more information about the business unit you'll be interviewing with
- Prepare a list of job-related questions that you can bring to the interview
How long does the hiring process take?
While it varies, most people have at least two rounds of face-to-face interviews--the first with recruiting and hiring managers, the second with the team. Most posted positions are available immediately, but the hiring process can vary greatly in length and depends on several factors, including the skills needed and the number of qualified candidates.
Will I receive feedback on my interview?
We make every effort to give feedback to all candidates regarding interviews, either in person or in writing.
If I don't get this job, can I continue to apply for other Fidelity positions?
Yes. Our positions are updated daily. Ensure that your profile is updated because Fidelity recruiters search and review candidate profiles daily.
What is the salary range of the position I applied to?
All jobs have a broad salary range that accommodates those employees who are becoming proficient at their positions and those who are already quite skilled. Your starting salary will depend upon your experience and perceived proficiency at your job. Fidelity reviews its salary structure regularly to ensure we remain competitive with market conditions.
