How to Get Hired
We asked AXA 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?
AXA has identified certain core competencies that are critical to success at the company. As part of our selection process, we assess candidates for customer centricity, learning agility and innovation. In addition, AXA also looks for people who have a collaborative working style, which is key to our culture and includes the ability to collaborate with people who work remotely, across state lines, and even across countries. In addition, we emphasize that, regardless of a person’s role, everyone has customers, whether they are clients or internal partners. We also don’t hire specifically for a job, but rather for the ability to contribute, grow and take advantage of internal mobility within the company. Therefore, forward thinking, drive, passion and a big-picture strategic view are musts at AXA.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
AXA is deeply connected to our employees. Candidates who want to set themselves apart should start with their connections to help their applications stand out. Who do they know at AXA? Can they use that connection to highlight and strengthen their candidacy?
AXA is driven by its mission to serve our customers and their communities, demonstrating our commitment to service, diversity and inclusion. Candidates can set themselves apart by showing their common interests. They can also get to know AXA through the events we sponsor like NYC Pride March, Charlotte Dragon Boat Festival and Syracuse Honor Flight. AXA helps candidates understand their strengths through digital tools. For example, AXA partners with a big data company, Knack, that uses gamification to predict how successful new hires will be. Candidates can play the games and share their profiles with AXA, assuming the candidates' strengths align with competencies in the job description, to distinguish themselves.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
