How to Get Hired
We asked Acxiom Corporation 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?
We look for candidates who are authentic and transparent in the way they speak, act, and make decisions. They collaborate fearlessly and want to contribute to the team. We appreciate candidates who can take smart risks to explore new opportunities. Because we want to push ourselves to always get better and never settle for the status quo, we in turn expect our candidates to have that same vest for continuous learning and improvement. Our candidates need to be biased toward action—we value results, so we’re always wanting to make an impact. We also truly value diversity of thought and experience—someone who will be able to add to our culture, not just fit within it. If you fit the above-mentioned characteristics, you will embody Acxiom’s values.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Show us that you did your research! Ask questions relevant to our industry and demonstrate that you understand the digital ecosystem. When you interview with us, describe how your unique skillset will align with our mission and vision and ultimately accelerate our business. We want to know that you’re excited to join the team. Spotlight how your innovative thoughts and ideas will drive change.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We are actively hiring savvy salespeople, digital data gurus with industry knowledge, and technical experts (developers, testers, and architects) to support our impressive client roster from around the world. In addition, we’re looking for financial talent to support our internal business operations. New grad hiring typically takes place during university season (from late August until March), but we are always hiring software engineers and digital sales talent.
