Prepare to be onsite

 

What to wear:

Your interview and work attire can vary depending on your personal preference. Some team members wear business professional, while others wear jeans and t-shirts. Use your discretion for what to wear during the interview. Select attire that is comfortable, makes you confident, and enables you to showcase who you are and why you would like to work for Cloud Software Group.

 

Bring your phone, laptop, device-chargers, and any other essentials:
