How to Get Hired
We asked Belmont Village Senior Living 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?
Belmont Village prefers someone with prior experience in the job for which they are applying. In addition, we realize that the character and qualities a candidate brings to the table can be just as or more important for how they will learn and thrive once in the role. The following are characteristics of a successful candidate. Belmont employees are good listeners. They are compassionate and patient. They are trustworthy, dependable, and are willing to go the extra mile to help their residents and fellow employees. Above all, they have a strong background in customer service, perform well in a team environment, and enjoy making a positive impact in the lives of others. They strive to grow personally and professionally. They have a strong work ethic and a proven dedication to prior employers demonstrated by tenure and increased responsibility.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Candidates need to present themselves well on paper and during the interview process. Prospective employees are most successful when they present professionally both over the phone and in person and can articulate a genuine interest and passion in working with seniors. Candidates also do well when they bring new and compelling ideas to the table. Candidates who appear well prepared for the interview by demonstrating a basic understanding of the Belmont Village mission and relating this to their own interests in the position for which they are applying will stand out among the rest.
