Wow us with your résumé, and we'll want to meet you in person. Here are a few tips to help you ace the interview:
COME PREPARED TO ANSWER QUESTIONS
We understand that your experiences won’t always line up item-for-item with the job description. What matters is your ability to speak clearly about your skills, passions and projects in a way that's more than just a summary of your qualifications.
We're not looking for the perfect candidate. We want to hire unique thinkers who can make up diverse teams at Garmin. Don't tell us how you fit the mold; we're more interested in how you break it.
DO YOUR RESEARCH
We make much more than GPS navigators for cars. We want candidates to understand the range of products we make and the variety of markets we serve. Even specialized skills may have crossover value.
Your interview starts as soon as you leave your home. Be nice, especially to the people who help you get where you need to go, such as the receptionist, greeter and even the Uber driver.
DRESS TO IMPRESS
No official dress code means we leave it up to our associates to dress the way their position and responsibilities require. As a candidate, you should dress professionally, and in a way that reflects your personality and experience.
STAND APART FROM THE CROWD
Our recruiters hear from a lot of natural leaders, hard workers, problem solvers and team players. These are desirable qualities, but we want examples of how you've used these qualities to improve processes, effect change or overcome an obstacle. Be specific and include results metrics.
Finding the right fit is just as important to Garmin as it is to you. We love hearing your questions about culture, work-life balance, benefits and how you can put your passions to work.
SEND A THANK-YOU NOTE
We want to hear from you. Send a thank-you note to anyone — recruiter, coordinator, interviewing team — with whom you interacted in a meaningful way. You can write about what you learned, what excited you and why you think you would be a great member of the team.
