They prescreen you over phone and then call you for a face-to-face interview. If you are new to this, you will go with lot of hope of getting a job. That's just the part of registration. They will tell you that they will reach out with a relevant position. That never happens. After couple of months, though you are registered with them, the same process will be repeated.

Contatto in seguito ad un'application ad un loro annuncio. Dopo una breve telefonata conoscitiva è stato fissato un colloquio in presenza presso la loro sede. Il colloquio è durato un'ora, dopo la presentazione dell'azienda e del ruolo mi hanno chiesto di parlare della mia esperienza lavorativa e delle motivazioni della mia candidatura.
