How to Get Hired
We asked Asbury Communities, 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?
The best fit for Asbury is the candidate who possesses the applicable knowledge, skills, abilities and credentials needed for the position, demonstrates accountable behaviors and a commitment to a higher purpose and serving seniors. We look for candidates who have a passion for working with people, especially the elderly, and who possess a personal value system that aligns with Asbury's mission and values.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Present a well-written and organized resume that clearly shows qualifications necessary for the position. Having a presence on LinkedIn is especially helpful in filling key leadership positions. Experience in long term care is not always required. We have hundreds of associates working here who had never worked in aging services, and now, they wouldn't dream of working anyplace else!
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Asbury is always looking for qualified individuals who are passionate about person-centered care. Hiring managers will specifically look for highly accountable individuals when interviewing and will be listening for experiences in a person's career that have cultivated an accountable mindset. Asbury is always looking for clinical nurses, CNA's and GNA's, culinary and dining staff, housekeeping and maintenance individuals.
