How to Get Hired
We asked Advanced Correctional Healthcare, Inc. 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?
ACH seeks employees who display a high level of professionalism, problem solving, integrity, and commitment. Our employees are people who are professional to others at all levels – clients, peers, and patients. They are empowered to do the right thing and have personal values that match the company’s. They understand that our patients in correctional facilities are someone's child, sibling, spouse, or parent. Our employees are not there to judge or make these patients’ lives harder, but strive to make the management of patients' medical and mental health concerns, easier.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
A prospective employee attracts our attention by being themselves in the interview process. ACH looks for individuals who not only have the appropriate skills, but who are a good fit for the culture of the facility for which they apply. Our interview process is set up to place professional people into roles in which they will succeed. If an applicant misrepresents themselves in an interview, they may find themselves unhappy due to a culture that was not the right fit for them.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
In the coming year as our clientele continues to grow, we are committed to hiring the best clinical staff for individual facilities. Generally, positions with our new and existing clients include nurses, doctors, nurse practitioners, and mental health professionals. Having correctional experience is a plus but is not a requirement. Our qualified interviewing team looks for candidates that demonstrate ACH’s core values for positions at both at our off-site facilities and in our corporate office.
