How To Get Hired At Tamatem Games
If you’re here reading this, you’ve shown the first sign of interest in working at Tamatem Games – so thanks! For those who want to take the next step and get the real deal on what it takes to get hired at Tamatem Games, this blog post will give you the short and sweet rundown.
The process of landing a job can be stressful from start to finish; whether it’s the search phase, application process, or in-person interviews. However, if there’s one thing you should keep in mind when applying to work at Tamatem Games, it’s this: the human aspect.
Although we do focus on hiring people with the right experience, skills, and track records, we also give ample consideration to their human side – what makes them unique, what excites them, and what they’re like on a day-to-day basis.
Tell us who you really are
We’ve been in the industry for quite some time and, by now, we know how much authenticity matters. Drop the preconceived personality traits you think are right for the job and just be yourself.
Don’t build a persona that you think will get you hired – you’re better off being honest and just showing us your genuine, true self. When you’re writing that resume, updating your LinkedIn, proofreading your cover letter, and preparing for your interview, just be yourself all the way through and that’s how you’ll up your chances of getting hired.
Show us what you can do
Relying on your resume to list all your qualifications and skills won’t do you justice. Instead, try getting creative; showing us what you can do is far more powerful than telling us. If you’re a UI/UX designer, try going the extra mile and building a visual interface to showcase your talent. The fact that you’re willing to put in the extra effort, that on its own, would be impressive evidence of dedication on your part.
Let your energy speak for itself
Again, if you’re listing “passionate”, “energetic” and “engaged” as personality traits on your resume, then you should make sure they come through off paper too in your interview.
At Tamatem Games, we take our company culture and office environment seriously so the in-person aspect of the hiring process is pivotal. Not only should you prepare to hit all the right talking points in your interview, but you should also be yourself and let your energy speak for itself. Try to make sure that the person you’re describing in your resume is the same person who shows up in person – that way you’re not overpromising and underdelivering.
Follow all the right steps
As someone looking to work at Tamatem Games, you could follow every piece of advice up to this point but if you’re not taking the actual steps then it won’t really matter.
To kick off your road to working at Tamatem, start by heading to our careers page. Browse our open positions and follow the application steps as listed. If you come in for an interview and you think you’re right for the position, send over a follow-up email and tell us why you won’t take no for an answer.
Regardless of what job you’re interested in or which company you’re applying to work at, there’s always a way to get your foot in the door or to put yourself on the radar. In addition to applying, try reaching out to your personal connections, send out a few messages through LinkedIn, and attend more events where you can broaden your network, and remember: when there’s a will, there’s a way!
