How to Get Hired
We asked 49 Financial for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
One key characteristic that tells us whether a prospective employee will be a great fit for our company is that they are honest and genuine in their interviews. We want to know their character rather than what they think we would prefer to hear. Another characteristic we look for, when deciding if a candidate is a great fit, is their professional bearing (the way in which they carry and conduct themselves). In our career, associates are meeting with clients daily, so representing one’s firm and oneself in a confident and genial manner is a key factor in determining fit.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
One excellent way to garner our attention is for candidates to represent themselves with humility and confidence. A second is that candidates go above and beyond to express initiative and gratitude. Third would be that candidates demonstrate professionalism and are well prepared for all interviews and meetings. Lastly, standout candidates have done research about our company and mission before coming into the office. All of these are great ways for a candidate to gain and hold attention during the interview process.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
In the coming year (2019) we are renewing our focus on candidates that are excited about the expansion of 49 Financial into new geographies nationwide – candidates who not only ascribe to the mission, vision, and values of 49 Financial, but who want to expand on them with new goals and aspirations of how we can revolutionize the industry. We also hope to hire additional headquarters staff to continue to support our associates from an administrative and executive capacity.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Interested candidates can find more information about our company through our website (www.49financial.com), Facebook page, and LinkedIn business page. We also are active at many different colleges through career fairs and on-campus speaking engagements where students can interact directly with our associates. Outside of those avenues, we always encourage interested candidates to simply reach out and speak to us; each and every one of our associates is a great source of information about, and insight into, 49 Financial.
