EDGE COMPETENCE

Genuine consultants are at the forefront of clients’ and industries’ current demands to be able to provide them with current valuable competence. Netlight calls this EDGE. Working with genuine consultants is of the highest importance for companies and industries as a mean to stay modern and up-to-date with the newest technologies.

EDGE summarizes the ways Netlight maintain, develop and share current valuable competences and knowledge in relevant areas such as: new technologies, branch specific knowledge and best practices. EDGE differentiates Netlight and makes sure we can always provide the best solution, based entirely on the client’s wants and needs. EDGE derives from the strategic needs of Netlight’s core industries and ensures that Netlight stays up-to-date and always can provide the most suitable action in line with our client’s business objectives.

  • EDGE COMPETENCE CELLS – Netlight’s Competence Cells are the core of EDGE. The Competence Cells are established to provide intelligence and to make certain Netlight’s consultants are up-to-date and have the required competence at the same time as they are challenged and motivated to learn more. The Competence Cells are also responsible for making sure the knowledge and competence is shared and applied throughout the organization and the different projects.


  • EDGE SEMINARS are held monthly with the objective of spreading knowledge throughout the organization. The seminars are conducted by Netlight’s Competence Cells as a workshop or presentation and are led by an expert in the relevant field. The experts come from both within and from sources outside of the company


  • EDGE ACADEMY is arranged every year for one spring week as a concentrated knowledge exhibition covering the collective knowledge of Netlight. During this week a number of seminars and workshops are arranged with focus on hands-on professional development.


  • EDGE CONFERENCE is held each year and is the peak of EDGE. EDGE Conference looks into the future and during the Conference the members discuss new upcoming technologies and determine what EDGE should focus on the coming year. The speakers at the Conference are key decision makers at companies and organizations who excel in their branch and industry. Netlight invites all our consultants as well as our clients to participate in the Conference. The speakers and participants at the EDGE Conference offers a vital dimension to our work to constantly gain new knowledge, share existing knowledge and challenge ourselves to new exiting fields and technologies.

    Pros

    - I been working at Netlight for 3+ years and are constantly pushed out of my comfort-zone and challenged to improve my own skill set.

    - My colleagues always have my back if I'm faced with a challenge, personal or business related, I always have very talented and attentive people to talk to, and the support I've got over the years is amazing.

    - I have the opportunity to work internationally with very interesting and innovative clients.

    - I feel that the effort I put into Neltight is very appreciated and rewarded not only in terms of money but in responsibility and trust, Netlight definitely promotes success and hard work

    - Transparency and communication is something Netlight talk a lot about and something that's really emphasized and improves continuously and Netlight is taking on the challenge of how to keep a high level of transparency with a high growth rate.

    - Good work life balance

    Cons

    - If you are the type of person who likes set rules and guidelines for everything you will find it challenging at times, there is no "How to Netlight"

    - Limited to Europe, Netlight opens new offices continuously but at this moment there is unfortunately no offices in the US or Asia

    - Netlight offers a huge competence bank for those who want to take part of it but you have to invest your own time and effort to grow. A person who does not strive for personal development and taking part of and sharing their own competence to the Netlight network might not be a perfect fit for Netlight.

    Advice to Management

    Keep including all Netlighters new and old in challenges and changes.

    IT Consultant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Netlight (Munich, Bayern (Germany)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    In the fall of 2016, a recruiter contacted me. We had a nice chat and I was invited to the interview process. There were 3 on-site interviews: first with HR, then a technical one, and the last one with a manager. The whole process spanned 3 weeks. Before the last interview, they asked me to prepare a Netlight CV - an extended version of my usual CV with detailed information about every project I've ever been involved in. I passed all the stages successfully, getting a positive feedback each time from the recruiter. After the last step, I was asked whether I would be ready to accept an offer from them. I agreed because the company seemed to be very nice, dynamic and innovative. In 2 days I got a reject. It turned out that couldn't find the right project for me (I don't speak German, so it was the main reason).

    Even though the company seems to be really nice, they have really big troubles in communication between their recruitment team and the management. I wasted 3 weeks, passing all the interviews. In the end, I got rejected because they couldn't find a right project for me. It could've been done in the very early stages and it would save my time and efforts (I never pretended to speak German fluently and I was rather clear about it).
