2nd Meeting

In the 2nd meeting, the candidate meets other VSHNeers, usually focusing on people from the team for which this open position is. The goal is to further find out if the candidate is a good fit for VSHN and the position, but also to show the candidate who we’re and how we work at VSHN.

It’s important that we let the candidate tell us a lot about themselves so that the team can get a feel for whether the person might be a good fit for them and for the job. Of course, there should always be timeto answer the candidate’s questions.

The second meeting consists of
  1. 15min welcome and agenda introduction with the recruiter

  2. 3x 30min meeting with 2 VSHNeers each, preferably from the teams the candidate could join

  3. 15min break

  4. 60min co-working with a VSHNeer or a special discussion round for non-tech positions.

  5. 30min reserved for feedback, questions, next steps with the recruiter


  • If all feedback is positive, Recruiting proposes the candidate to the stakeholders (usually the team). The stakeholder (team) makes the decision whether it wants the candidate (or which one, if more than one is considered).

  • If it’s a go, the candidate is advanced to Offer Draft in Recruitee and then the management takes the final decision (usually in the next weekly Management meeting).

  • When approved Recruiting hands over to People Operations to send a work contract as an official job offer. The status is then set to Offered. See Contract and Paperwork.

When a position is filled, we usually close the job opening, which automatically removes the job ad from our vshn.ch/jobs.

In case of a negative decision, Recruiting informs the candidate and rejects the candidate in Recruitee.

This process is tracked and reviewed as part of VIP-112.
