  4. Stay curious – Learn about our company and technology. Explore what you are interested in, whether it’s about how we build 5G or if it’s about our AI in networks, and prepare questions about the things you want to know more about. This is just as much an opportunity for you to get to know us as it is for us to know you.

Virtual job interview

Having a virtual interview can feel a bit uncomfortable, but remember we are all in the same situation; the interviewer might be facing the same issues as you. Here are a few tips when it comes to preparing for your virtual interview!

  1. Install Microsoft Teams. Test your microphone and camera in advance. 
  2. Turn off all disturbances. Make sure your mobile, computer notifications, and televisions are switched off.
  3. Dress as you would for a face-to-face interview.
  4. Body language is as important now, if not more.

Labor Condition Application Posting Notices

It has come to our attention that emails and job adverts have been created and circulated by unknown individuals for the purpose of attempting to defraud candidates.

Potential candidates should be wary of approaches that appear to be offering a job for which they have not applied, especially if personal details or money must be sent in order to proceed with the recruitment. Neither Ericsson nor any commissioned third parties recruit in this manner. Such approaches are almost certainly fraudulent attempts to gain details of identity for illegal use.

Ericsson is taking all necessary steps to investigate this matter further.
