What to wear:

At Citrix, our work attire varies greatly depending on personal preference. Some Citrites wear business professional, while others wear jeans and T shirts! Use your best discretion for what to wear during the interview, and select whatever is most comfortable for you to showcase who you are and why you would like to work for Citrix. 

 

Bring your phone, laptop, device-chargers or any essentials:

Ensure you have a fully-charged mobile device so you are able to contact us if needed. You may also choose to bring a laptop, but please ensure you keep it safely in a backpack or laptop case, and in your possession at all times. Citrix is not responsible for any lost or stolen items. 

 

Frequently asked questions related to onsite interviews

 

1.)  Do I have to be fully Covid-19 vaccinated to attend onsite interviews?

No. At this time we are not requiring visitors to be vaccinated against Covid-19 to enter an office or attend onsite interviews. We ask that you wear a mask if you are not "fully vaccinated." Fully vaccinated means that you have received all recommended doses of the primary vaccines and any booster(s) for which you are eligible. 

 

2.)  I am not comfortable traveling for an onsite interview at this time, could I do a virtual interview instead? 

Yes. We are happy to accommodate and provide you with a virtual interview experience. You will also be given equal consideration in the recruitment process as long as you meet the basic qualifications for the role. 

 

3.)  Will I have to wear a mask during onsite interviews?

We ask that you wear a mask if you are not "fully vaccinated." Fully vaccinated means that you have received all recommended doses of the primary vaccines and any booster(s) for which you are eligible. If you are fully vaccinated, you are not required to wear a mask but you are certainly welcome to wear a mask if you prefer. Your interviewer(s) will follow the same guidance. 

 

4.)  Will I have to present a negative COVID-19 test to travel and/or attend an onsite interview?

COVID-19 testing is not required to enter a Citrix office. If traveling by air, please follow airline guidance for COVID-19 testing policies.
