Mohamad A. asked a question
during the live chat IT careers at Nokia: discover our opportunities and work life
to Nokia Recruitment Team and Support
Well, this all depends. In IT we are currently looking for people in three hubs - in Amadora/Lisbon in Portugal, Budapest in Hungary and in Bangalore in India. All depends on the job descriptions and the unique fit of the job seeker.
Alright, I will first apply for positions in Antwerp and I will also apply for Lisbon in Portugal/
Check our jobs on www.nokia.com/careers. We have plenty of opportunities in IT!
Hi Mohamad, this depends on the country. We have local HR specialist knowing the country and rules and if you would be selected for a job we would try our best to support in getting a work visa. Prerequisite for employment however is getting the visa granted.
Alright, and what level of experience do you require for IT positions?
We are looking for more than 100 roles .. this means that each role has its own description and certain skills are required. Have a look and browse and let us know where you think you fit!
Hi Mohamad, it really depends on the position you apply to. Some are for more junior people and some others will require proven experience. Have a look to those available. You may find a few that fit your skills and experience.
Can you share what is your experience so far in IT? We have a large number of open positions and are looking for competent "do-ers" in multiple areas.
Hi Mohamad, this depends on recruiter and hiring manager how fast they want/ are allowed to hire. It always help to contact them pro-actively to show your interest and request a status update!
I am not sure which jobs you are referring to but in IT we are not hiring in Antwerp. We are hiring in Portugal, Hungary and India. Please understand that we are building out these three hubs in general. Thank you
Is it a problem if I apply for a position in Portugal while I'm in Belgium?
Hi Mohamad, are you willing to relocate?
You can definitely apply, mention your availability to relocate on your cv or introduction letter
Alright great! May I ask how the interview process goes? Do I have to travel to Lisbon for the interview?
What is your background and skillset in IT - infrastructure, data centers, network, middleware ... software apps being SAP, ....? Can you elaborate on yourself?
No. Not at all. We will organize a video call that you can join from anywhere with a decent internet connection.
Alright, I am currently finishing my studies in Electronics engineering and IT this summer. I am experienced in app development, data science and ICT from my university courses.
Hi Mohamad, it's great to see your enthusiasm. I will share your profile with the Talent Acquisition team in Antwerp/Belgium and we will evaluate your competencies also for a position in Portugal. Please continue applying to open roles. Best of luck.
