- Step 1: APPLY
Once you’ve found a job at MDB that you’re interested in, find a quiet place to start the online application process. Be sure you have a copy of your résumé, your cover letter and any other documentation you’d like to submit. Once you’re done with the application, you’ll receive a confirmation email which will contain your “Tracking Number”. Please, have this number documented for future references as all communications from MDB will use this number as identification.
- Step 2: WE’LL CONTACT YOU
If you’re a match for the position, a MDB recruiter may contact you to talk about your work history, answer any questions you have and possibly set up an initial interview.
- Step 3: INITIAL INTERVIEW
You may have an initial call with a MDB Human Resources professional to determine if you meet the requirements of the position.
- Step 4: IN-PERSON INTERVIEW
If you’re selected for an in-person interview, it will most likely be at the job location. The interview may be one-on-one or with a group, and you might be asked to attend more than one in-person interview, depending on the position. There will be ongoing communication throughout interviewing rounds to keep you informed.
The in-person interview will be more in-depth than the initial interview, so you should be prepared to give specific examples of your skills, experience and how you’ll add value to the team.
- STEP 5: WE’LL BE IN TOUCH
After you’ve completed the necessary in-person interviews, our hiring committee will assess all the candidates and make a decision. During this time, feel free to reach out to your point of contact with any follow-up questions.
In the event that you are pre-selected for a position, there are a number of pre-employment processes you’ll need to successfully complete in order to start work. They include various background checks, drug and alcohol screening, as well as several onboarding forms. For example, you will need to establish your identity and valid employment eligibility by providing your National ID and employment eligibility documents on or before your start date. We’ll keep you updated about all the steps you need to take throughout the pre-employment process.
