How to Get Hired
We asked Bank of America 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?
Attracting and retaining talented people to help grow our company responsibly is critical to our success. We look for individuals who have a passion for serving our customers, clients and communities, and who are committed to our purpose of working together to make financial lives better through the power of every connection. This requires employees who reflect and value our diversity - in thought, style, culture, ethnicity and experience. We look for candidates who have a genuine interest in our business and who demonstrate a high standard of professional skills and experiences. Candidates who exemplify these skills, coupled with personal integrity and an aptitude for leadership, will always be a great fit for our company.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
At Bank of America, we look for unique perspectives and diverse backgrounds that can yield dynamic ideas. Our diversity is critical to our ability to serve clients, fulfill our purpose, and drive responsible growth. It is at the core of how we work as an organization, and it is essential to how we work in communities. We are drawn to candidates who are able to bring their authentic selves and distinctive expertise to the organization.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We are committed to attracting and retaining a diverse and inclusive workplace. Our diversity makes us stronger and is essential to our ability to meet the needs of our customers and clients. Through partnerships, investments and programs, we’re connecting women, diverse ethnic and cultural groups, and persons with disabilities to the resources they need to maximize their potential. Our military recruiting team also partners with niche organizations to find talented military service members, military spouses and veterans to join our company.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
We recommend interested candidates start by learning about our company. Access our website at www.bankfoamerica.com to learn about our different lines of business and our involvement in the community, visit one of our 4,600 financial centers across the U.S., or attend our events and presentations on campuses across the country. This will help candidates get to know our business, our team members, and our values.
In addition to traditional channels and partnerships, we encourage candidates to utilize our innovative platforms through their preferred channels, including our Twitter presence, @BofA_Careers and LinkedIn.
