Welcome to the first OTE COSMOTE
Graduate Trainee Program!
Enjoy the career experience of a lifetime
at the largest telecommunications group in Greece.
The application period
Welcome On Board! The company welcomes you and briefs you on the main functions of the largest telecommunications group in Greece. Moreover you will learn more about our culture and guiding principles.
In this part of your journey, you will experience the truly fast pace of the market, by meeting the most important success factor of our company - our customers! You will experience customer service in one of our stores and our call centres and will collaborate with our group's field technicians.
This is the main part of the program, where you will learn about the core functions of the company as well as those business units whose work is equally important in providing a positive experience for our customers! Through job rotation and participation in actual projects, you will gain a better understanding of the structure and the operation of both our company and the telecommunications industry.
In this part of the journey you will put theory to practice. You will have specific objectives, responsibilities and will be asked to give solution to real business issues. Through this experience you will have the opportunity to test your skills in various functions and to meet and work with a number of different individuals, under varied conditions and gain valuable experience.
After 18 exciting months, your journey in the OTE COSMOTE Graduate Trainee Program will be completed.
During this period, your results and overall performance will be assessed at every milestone by each of your supervisors, who will give you valuable feedback. At the same time, a special Senior Management committee will be monitoring your performance and achievements, and you will have an opportunity to present new ideas and proposals to them through the most significant projects you participated in.
Provided you successfully complete all stages and requirements of the program, you will be offered a specific position in the group, depending on its business needs and your profile.
Fill in all your CV data through the application. Upload a selfie photo that describes you best and state in one sentence “Why me”! Introduce yourself in a creative yet sincere way by adding personal details that will make your application unique. Tell us about your studies and skills and do not forget to share your interests, experiences and achievements with us, beyond a professional context.
The selected online tests are conducted in English and are in a multiple choice format.
Their aim is to assess the numerical, verbal and reasoning skills of all the candidates. Remember that these tests have a predetermined duration and specific deadlines. The good news is that you can choose when to take the tests! Do not be tempted to ask for help from someone else; these tests are designed to verify the consistency of the answers. Choose the appropriate time and place, hang the "Do not disturb" sign outside your door and you are ready to start!
Have you ever taken a personality questionnaire before? If not, don't worry! This is probably the easiest part of the process, since these questionnaires are not about giving a right or wrong answer. Try to be spontaneous and respond as honestly as you can. This questionnaire will help you learn more about yourself and be better prepared for the next stages of the selection process.
If you successfully complete all previous stages, you will be invited to an interview.
At this stage of the process, we want to get to know you better; that is why we carry out the first round of interviews. Our experienced associates will explore some skills and behaviors based on your CV and the tests.
You have already dedicated a significant amount of your time to us and we would like to offer you something back in return. Prepare for a complementary career guidance seminar that will help you explore your aptitude and talents. Your participation in the seminar is optional and will not be part of your assessment for the program.
The interviews in this phase will give you the opportunity to come into contact and meet senior executives of our company in person. On our part, we will learn more about you, your skills and abilities, and about your values and what motivates you the most, not just through your professional experiences, but also through your studies and your life in general.
You should make sure that you come prepared, but mainly be sincere. You should speak honestly about your personal vision, about the things that excite you and everything you have achieved to date, referring to real examples. We will ask you to share real experiences, feelings and events with us.
You are one step away from success!
You have succeeded in becoming part of the Assessment Center, which will be held in Athens. The Assessment Center lasts for one day. It is an intensive day, so we advise you to be well-rested and to put your best foot forward. We want you to experience this day by discovering more about yourself and the way you work as part of a team. Your day will include a number of different individual and group exercises which will make up your overall profile. Do not be disappointed if you feel you did not do so well in a particular exercise; there are other exercises and they are all important. This is a wonderful and useful experience for the next step in your professional career, regardless of the outcome of your candidacy.
