At STABL Energy, we have received a lot of positive feedback from our recent employees and applicants about the recruitment process. At first glance, it may seem like there are too many stages, but don’t worry: each stage has its place, and in this blog post we’ll explain one by one. Find out how to get a job at STABL Energy here.

It starts with you

The recruitment process at STABL Energy starts with you. As a young, innovative and fast-growing start-up company, we always have vacancies, each of which requires different skills and characteristics. 

We value our team and the people who make it up. To get an idea of how we work and who we are, check out our website, especially the blog, and visit our LinkedIn page. 

We are looking for applicants who have the right skills but also the right attitude. Before you start looking for a job, you should think about yourself a little and ask yourself: What is important to me? What do I value in my working environment? What was the best job I ever had? By answering these questions, you will get to know yourself better and you will have a better idea of what you want and what your perfect job should look like. 

These questions will also help you to find out whether STABL Energy and our team can match your ideas of the ideal job. We are convinced that this self-reflection is an important first step, because we not only want people with skills, but also people who are passionate about what they do.

Your application documents

If you have found a suitable position at STABL Energy or you would like to send us an unsolicited application, it is time to prepare your documents. Of course, you can send in your old CV, but we always recommend creating a CV that is specifically tailored to the job you want – not just at STABL, but in general. Here are five tips that we think will be most useful when preparing your application:

  • Match your skills and experience to the job description and explain how your previous work will help you fulfill the new role and support us.
  • Don’t be afraid to be specific about projects you’ve worked on or led. A good formula for this is: “By doing [X], we have achieved [Y], measured against [Z]”.
  • To all graduates: If you are a recent graduate or have limited work experience, refer to internships, coursework or university projects that demonstrate relevant skills and knowledge. Club work, part-time jobs and other commitments are also worth mentioning.
  • Always remember: keep it short and simple.
  • Your cover letter, certificates and other documents such as references round off your application. 

All documents collected and ready? Then simply send your application documents in PDF format to jobs@stabl.com and you’re ready to go!

The questionnaire - getting to know you

Before we invite you to an interview, we’ll send you a few questions to get to know you better as a person and get a feel for how well you might fit in with our team. They range from general questions like “What is important to you?” to specific questions like “When could you start with us?”. Don’t overthink it, be authentic and show us who you really are. 😊

Interviews

If we think you’re suitable for the position you’ve applied for, you’ll move on to the next stage and we’ll invite you to a short virtual chat. The interview usually lasts around 30 minutes and will usually take place via Microsoft Teams or another video conferencing tool.

This is the perfect platform to get to know each other. We make sure that you have the key skills you need for the job and, conversely, you have the opportunity to ask questions about STABL Energy and the position in question. First and foremost, however, it’s about getting to know you as a person. 
 
A few days after this first interview, we will move on to the next phase, in which we will take a closer look at you and the position. We conduct this second interview in person or via Microsoft Teams. At this meeting, you will meet at least one of your future colleagues and we will try to find out whether you, your skills, your interests and the tasks at our company are a good match. For this interview, it is certainly helpful if you know a little about STABL Energy – both the company and the technology. Otherwise, we want to get to know you as an expert in your field and how you work. Don’t put any pressure on yourself and rely on your expertise and experience. 
 
Tip: Think of the interview as a conversation at eye level or a discussion rather than an interview. We know that interviews can be intimidating from an applicant’s perspective, but overall we try to make the whole process friendly and welcoming. It’s just as important that we are a good fit for you as you are for us.

Our Experience Day

One special feature that has brought us a lot of positive feedback from applicants and new employees is our Experience Day. We invite you to join us and you spend half a day or a whole day with our team. You will get to know all potential team members and can get an idea of your (hopefully) future workplace during a tour of the lab and office. 
 
During this day, you will have the opportunity to get to know all the employees and find out whether you like the people and the atmosphere. To get a better idea of how you work, we’ll give you a small project or set of tasks. Don’t panic – it’s not about delivering a complete and perfect solution. We just want to understand how you think and how you approach problems. 
 
Ask yourself whether you feel comfortable in our working environment – whether you get on well with potential colleagues and whether the tasks described match your skillset. As already mentioned: you have to fit in with us, but we also have to fit in with you.

Decision and offer

After the interviews and the Experience Day, we will evaluate the experiences and make our decision. If you have agreed, we will also speak to the references you have provided. All of these factors and perspectives will influence our decision. If we come to the conclusion that you are the best candidate for the job, we will inform you of our decision and make you an offer. Of course, we also hope that you will choose us. After all, we are 100% sure that you are the right person for us.  
 
Once you have accepted the offer, we look forward to welcoming you to STABL Energy and guiding you through the onboarding process so that you can settle in with us as quickly as possible. We look forward to having you on board!

  3. Adapt your application documents to the position 
  4. The interviews are about getting to know you both personally and professionally
