💎 How can you show cultural add? Watch the video to the end to learn how to do it and get valuable advice to succeed in the interview process.
📼 Cultural add is essential when joining a new work environment, but it is not the only thing that matters. Azwan Rahim, talent acquisition partner at Workiva, will walk you through the interview process and share helpful advice.
📼 Workiva assesses cultural add and competency with a thorough screening and interview process. They want to hire the best people for each job. They look for candidates who align with the company values, represent diverse backgrounds and skillsets, and are motivated to work as a team. The “Tell Me About Yourself” segment is by far the most important to get right, as it will set the tone for the rest of the interview and give you the confidence boost you need to kick-start the conversation. Try to be succinct and purposeful in your sharing. You should be able to confidently walk recruiters through the summary of your profile, plus your current and past experience.
📼 Express cultural add with the right answers. Your answers to recruiters' questions should allow them to gain insights into your skills, past experience, and mindset. You can answer questions about your competencies by providing relevant examples validated by success metrics. Frame your answers according to the job requirements. It is helpful to think and structure your speech as a story. There should be a beginning (the situation), a middle (what you did), and an end (the outcome). That way, you can share with the interviewer how you have exemplified those competencies or skills required for the position.
