Your first days at Devoteam Netherlands start with onboarding, a period for getting to know the company and your colleagues. Day 1 of the onboarding is the so-called “Welcome day”. Together with the other colleagues who will start in the same month, you spend a whole day at the office in The Hague. There you will get introduced to the ins and outs of Devoteam Netherlands. You will also hear what the other new colleagues have done before, and your official company photo gets taken for your business cards.
As a consultant, it is always exciting in the beginning. How quickly can you actually start with an assignment? For this, you examine the requests that come in and you are actively involved in picking assignments together with sales and your supervisor. Writing your motivation for that one special assignment and conducting intake interviews with clients are things that you will be doing a lot during the first month.
You will visit colleagues – who are at a client working on a project – to hear and see what they do from day to day.
Of course, there is also enough time during the first month to get to know Devoteam Netherlands, to work in the office, and to get to know your colleagues. In the first week, you will immediately get assigned to a “buddy” who helps you with that. You will visit colleagues (who are at a client working on a project) to hear and see what they do from day to day. You will also be involved in a pre-sales trajectory, which means that there is such a large (potential) assignment request, where an examination is first carried out to clarify the client’s needs, to be able to prepare a well-fitting quotation.
In the meantime, the effort to win your first assignment could already have paid off. You might get started within a week!
Have fun during your onboarding time!
