How to Get Hired

We asked BayCare Health System, 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?

When looking to hire new team members, we look for individuals who embrace our Mission, Vision, Values and Culture. Successful team members demonstrate a positive can-do attitude, have the ability to adapt to change and are a team player. We use behavioral-based interview questions that are then validated through a reference assessment to determine whether potential new hires will be a good cultural fit. BayCare also utilizes a collaborative interview process, where hiring authorities and recruiters work together to determine job fit. Our leaders are trained in interviewing skills and provided approved questions to assist in assessing skills and cultural fit.

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

We always encourage candidates to complete their application so we have a clear understanding of their background and knowledge. Attaching a cover letter that tells why they are interested in a particular position at BayCare also adds value and is a way to give insight to what they have to offer and what might make them a great cultural fit. It is equally important, though, for candidates to apply for positions for which they are qualified and meet the minimum requirements. The BayCare Talent Acquisition team attends many local job fairs, which is a great opportunity to connect with our recruiters. Plus, we encourage prospective candidates to follow us on LinkedIn, Facebook and other social media channels to keep engaged with what BayCare is doing for our team and for our community.

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

Yes, as a national nursing shortage looms over the industry, we will continue to focus on both graduate nurses and experienced RNs. Medical Technologist is also an area of focus due to the aging workforce in this area. As we focus on the Ambulatory and HomeCare needs, skilled and licensed professionals will be in much higher demand. As we expand our urgent care services and physician office practices, we also anticipate the increased need for additional Certified Medical Assistants. We will have a dedicated focus on cultural fit and will require candidates to view our new Applicant Video to ensure they understand not only our culture and opportunities but also our high expectations and what it means to be a BayCare team member.

What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

We have several avenues for potential candidates to learn more. Our BayCare website is, and they can also follow us on LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.  All job fairs are advertised on our website, allowing the opportunity for prospective candidates to meet our recruiter face to face. Another suggestion would be to search the recruiters on LinkedIn and start the conversation there, as we always encourage candidates to start connecting and building relationships.
