How to Get Hired
We asked Align Communications 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?
We look for passionate, bright and resourceful individuals with a strong work ethic, team orientation and communication skills. We expect you to want to come to work in the morning, enjoy working within your team, and take pride in a job well done. We look for that GSD (Get Stuff Done) attitude in all new Aligners. We believe interpersonal, collaboration and consultative skills are the harder part to teach. We feel that we can always train for the technical skills if the person is willing to work hard and is passionate about learning.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Candidates should apply via our Career Page or through Jobvite. They should submit a well written resume and, if desired, a cover letter highlighting why they feel they are a good match for our organization. We seek people that are passionate about their careers and on ongoing learning, so relevant industry certifications are a good way to demonstrate that. We prefer candidates with prior consulting or professional services experience.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Align is seeking Data Center Design and Build Professionals that are willing to travel. We are also looking for Senior Technoligists that have strong consultative skills, but are also willing to be hands-on in the implementation of the solutons they help to design. These Senior Technologists should have broad IT Infrastructure knowledge and experience performing IT Advisory work including Current State and Optimal State Assessements. We will be looking to hire Information Security Engineers for our expanding Cyber Security Solutions. We will also be adding technical project managers with a good understanding of innovative Workplace and End User Technology Solutions.
