How to Get Hired
We asked American Express 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?
American Express offers such a wide array of products and services, it’s easy to think that the characteristics of our ideal employee prospects would vary widely by division and job title. However, the opposite is true. Whether we are recruiting for a senior vice president or a customer care professional, we look for passionate individuals who: believe in delivering excellent service; strive for challenging work with a greater purpose; are leaders; and drive innovation in ways both big and small.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
We are looking for candidates who not only seek challenges, but who see challenge as an opportunity to stretch and learn. Prospective employees can set themselves apart by illustrating how they are able to adapt quickly to change and persist, with optimism, when faced with complexity. Most of all, we are looking for people who will champion innovation with their team members and colleagues across the organization.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We are a company that has grown through reinvention. We want employees who think this way, too. We are looking for employees who drive new thinking by challenging the status quo, take informed risks, experiment with solutions to new and existing problems and test new ideas quickly.
We know if we want to continue to be one of the world’s most respected service brands, we need to deliver today the solutions that our customers will want in the future. We are hyper-focused on finding prospective employees who are committed to creating these solutions and helping our customers reach their goals.
We are looking for people who can re-imagine what we can do with core assets and think in disruptive ways.
