Hiring Process

What is the application process?

When you apply for a position, your profile and answers to any job questions are measured against the job requirements. As our recruiters match candidates for current opportunities, you may be contacted to schedule a qualifying telephone interview.

In some cases, you may not hear from us right away, which may indicate that at this time we don't have an opportunity that matches your skills. Please continue to apply to positions that interest you and keep your profile up to date. We are always looking for new talent.

I have an interview. What can I do to prepare?

"Come prepared to market yourself," says one Fidelity recruiter. "Instead of just listing your strengths, describe what you have accomplished as a result of those strengths. Cite specific examples."

Fidelity's interviewing style is behaviour-based. This means our recruiters and hiring managers will ask about specific professional situations you've been in and your accomplishments. For example, if you mention that you're efficient, you'll be asked to provide examples from your work history that illustrate this.

Fidelity recruiters suggest you:

  • Review the job description to determine how your background applies

  • Be prepared to cite examples of your key professional accomplishments or related academic work

  • Familiarise yourself with the content of your CV

  • Ask a friend or colleague to help you practice

  • Read some basic information about Fidelity's culture, history, companies, etc.

  • Ask your recruiter for more information about the business unit you'll be interviewing with

  • Prepare a list of questions that you can bring to the interview

How long does the hiring process take?

At Fidelity, we pride ourselves on having a talented team of associates and we achieve this through a thorough selection process. Candidates will meet with numerous representatives from the company and can expect to have a minimum of at least 2 rounds of face-to-face interviews and in some cases a phone interview with the technical team in the US. This ensures our hiring process is thorough, but also offers candidates a deep insight into our business.

The hiring process can vary greatly in length and depends on several factors, including the skills needed and the number of qualified candidates.

Will I receive feedback on my interview?

We make every effort to give feedback to all candidates regarding interviews, either in person or in writing.

If I don't get this job, can I continue to apply for other Fidelity positions?

Yes. We may have a new opening that is a better fit for you. Ensure that your profile is updated because Fidelity recruiters search and review candidate profiles on a regular basis.

What is the salary range of the position I applied for?

All jobs have a broad salary range that accommodates those employees who are becoming proficient at their positions and those who are already quite skilled. Your starting salary will depend upon your experience and perceived proficiency at your job. Fidelity reviews its salary structure regularly to ensure we remain competitive with market conditions.
