1. Elevate your pitch

First impressions stick. That’s why your introduction is very important. Even if you just graduated, you undoubtedly have some interesting experiences to share about your thesis or internship. 

Prepare a short but sweet elevator pitch that includes:

  • your studies and why you chose them,
  • relevant experiences and what you learned from them,
  • goals and ambitions for your future (Where do you want to go in your career?),
  • AND – last but not least – share some personal facts about yourself. We want to get to know the real you! 😉

2. Inspect the uninspected

Get to know the company you’re applying to. 

Applying for a job at the QbD Group?

  • browse through our website,
  • follow our social media,
  • find out what our values are,
  • and use that to your advantage during the interview.

Our 4 JPEG values
 (Joy, Partnership, Extra mile, and Getting things done) are the bone structure of our company and we want you to fit right in. Show us that you have the Qbd DNA in your blood!

3. Prepare your personal Q&A

You can’t predict how an interview will go, but one thing is for sure: the interviewer will ask you if you have any questions…

Write these down on a piece of paper in advance, so you don’t forget what you wanted to ask. 

Not only is it the perfect time to clear up any doubts, it also shows the interviewer that you are interested and committed.

4. Show your passion for Life Sciences

In the QbD Group, we live and breathe life sciences. Do you? Show us!

We are looking for employees who choose the industry with the goal of making patients’ lives better together, even if you are just a small piece of the puzzle. Let us know why you decided to study in your chosen field and where your interest came from. We want to know all about it!

5. Why so serious? Smile away!

Smiling will get you a long way. It will help reinforce the positive attitude you want to convey, make you feel more confident, and keep your answers positive.

Not only does it make a good impression on the interviewer, but it puts you in a better mood during the interview as well.

And pssst … Don’t take yourself too seriously. It’s more than okay to joke around during an interview, but keep it professional!
