How to Get Hired
We asked Advisors Excel 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're looking for hard-working, dedicated employees to provide outstanding service to our advisors all across the country. Culture fit is a big deal and we want individuals who are all pulling in the same direction and always trying and do the right thing. Those who will admit their mistakes when they make them and do whatever it takes to make it right. Beyond that, we want people who are great teammates, who are the type of person you want to work with on a daily basis and are willing to jump in and help out others when needed in order to provide the Ultimate Client Experience.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Let their individuality shine through. Tell us the story that isn’t told on their resume. During interview process, we need to get a feel for how they will fit with the team and what motivates them on a daily basis. There's no "I" in team and they need demonstrate to us that they want to be a part of the whole working with one goal in mind.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We employ what amounts to a full fledged ad agency in house. Those roles are becoming more challenging to fill in our immediate and surrounding area based on our population size. We will probably have the greatest need for numbers in our Wealth Management division as it's new and growing rapidly. Additionally, we've spent a chunk of 2016 bringing IT services and development in house and that trend will continue. From a candidate perspective we want to increase the diversity of our candidates; as a company we are participating along with other local business on a diversity and inclusion council, sharing ideas and best practices on the matter. Practically, it's about finding new and different sources and actively recruiting versus taking what comes across the website.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Check out weareadvisorsexcel.com. It’s our website built exclusively for making sure great candidates not only see our openings, but also learn about our culture and what we do at AE. We also have a company Facebook page, Advisors Excel Culture, which is geared to showcasing our unique work atmosphere, our corporate philanthropy work and promoting job openings.
