Ericsson was founded in 1876 in Sweden as a telecommunications and networking company. It holds more than 57,000 patents and is noted for the invention of Bluetooth.

Another way to judge your work behaviour as well as your personality traits, the personality test is used to see what your strengths and weaknesses are at work.
Personality tests tend not to be timed, and it is important that you answer honestly to ensure that you are a good fit for the wider business culture, as well as the closer team that you have applied for.
This also means that your answers are judged to determine whether you have the right personality traits for the business area and the role itself.
For some roles and business areas, you might need to complete a skills test to demonstrate that you already have the necessary knowledge.
All skills tests are there to determine a baseline of competency that is really important to the recruiters, as it shows that you do have the skills that the role needs.
On-demand video interview
The on-demand video interview follows the technical tests, and it is an important step in the process where the recruitment team can get a chance to see the best of you.
This interview is not live; instead, you are given a list of questions to answer. You need to answer them on video, and you will have an opportunity to practice beforehand and rehearse what you are going to say.
You can expect a combination of motivational and behavioural questions, and you will be expected to provide examples to support your answers.
For the best results, be concise and sure with what you say, and make sure that you present yourself in the best way. This means ensuring that all your equipment is working properly, and your backdrop and dress is professional and not distracting.
Behavioural and functional interviews
For those that proceed further, behavioural and functional interviews are the final step in the recruitment process.
At this stage, there are several ways that the interviews might be structured; you might have just one interviewer or a panel.
It is here that you will need to think on your feet, as questions asked will be linked to competencies required in the role. You will be expected to provide examples of where you have demonstrated the aptitudes needed for the role, preferably from work experience.
You can also expect to answer questions based on your knowledge of Ericsson and the wider telecommunications industry, so be sure to brush up on your knowledge of the business beforehand.
In some roles, you might be asked to demonstrate your technical ability during the interview, whether that is through working through a coding problem on a whiteboard or completing a case study. You will be told beforehand if there is anything you need to do to prepare specially for the functional interview.
