Shedding Light on Shadow Days

At Steve Skills, we’re always looking for innovative ways to ensure that potential candidates are the right match for both our team and the role. That’s why we’ve introduced ‘Shadow Days’—an immersive experience that offers a transparent and in-depth look at what it’s like to be part of our team. But what exactly is a Shadow Day, and why is it so beneficial for you and us alike?

What is a Shadow Day?

The journey begins with a phone conversation, followed by an in-depth interview at our office. Here, we discuss the role, motivations, fit, and expectations in detail. If all goes well, we extend an invitation for a Shadow Day. This unique opportunity allows candidates to experience a day in the life at Steve Skills, engaging directly with our team and getting a firsthand look at our day-to-day operations.

Why Shadow Days?

Shadow Days embody our commitment to openness and direct communication. These days are a gateway to not just meet but truly connect with our entire team, offering a glimpse into the collaborative spirit that fuels our company.

They provide a unique opportunity to:

  • Immerse yourself in our culture,
  • Witnessing firsthand how we navigate challenges and celebrate achievements, and
  • Beyond just observing, gain valuable insights from key figures within our organization, delving into the vision, potential, and day-to-day realities of the role you’re eyeing.

At the end, we can clearly assess how well your character and professional ambitions align with what we’re looking for.

How Do Shadow Days Enhance Our Decision-Making?

For Candidates

For you, it’s a no-strings-attached opportunity to evaluate if our company meets your expectations and career goals. It’s about experiencing the reality of the role, not just what’s on paper.

For the Company

Shadow Days allow us to see candidates in action, ensuring they align with our company culture and the specific role’s demands. It’s a day where potential meets practicality, helping us gauge if the candidate is the right fit for our team.

The ultimate goal is to find a mutual resonance with both the role and our team. While meeting the role’s requirements and showcasing your performance are crucial first steps, the journey with us only moves forward if the synergy with our team is unmistakably present.

  • At the end of the shadow day, both parties know the right decision. Should you have any doubts remain, it’s not the right candidate or position for you.

The Feedback Loop

Following a Shadow Day, we conduct a final meeting to exchange feedback. Regardless of the outcome, we provide clear, constructive insights. This open dialogue ensures that both parties can make informed decisions moving forward.
