The answer to this question depende on which method you use when looking for work.
If you go to a networking event and meet with the person in charge of recruitment, it’s possible to get a job right after a handshake and a short talk.
Normally, it usually takes at least two weeks to two months.
The normal procedure will go like this:
- you send your application letter to the company
- the company arranges your first interview with their HR team
- if the HR team is okay with you, they’ll arrange for another interview with their managers
- a few days or a week later, you should find out if the company is interested in hiring you or not
At big companies, they may arrange a third or fourth interview with someone higher up, which is going to extend the hiring process at least by a month or two.
