How to Get Hired
We asked Belvidere School District 100 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?
While competent candidates are essential, when we interview we are more concerned with whether the candidate would be a good cultural fit for our organization. We want candidates who are collaborative, confident but humble and also have emotional intelligence. We create a candidate profile that encompases our core values and create our interview questions around those values.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Prospective employees who can demonstrate ability to be innovative, honest, transparent and humble get our attention. We encourage our staff to takes risks, make mistakes and learn from them as we do with our students. Candidates who can speak to their successes but also their failures, and how they learned from them...that gets our attention.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
In regard to hiring for specific positions, focus areas include teachers for Dual Language and Career Tech Education. Another hiring focus for us is School Psychologists. Each of these positions are considered to be hard to fill positions. Over the past two years, we have collaboratively created a Strategic Plan founded on six core values...celebrate diversity, clear communication, collaborative culture, fiscal responsibility, high expectations and service excellence. We want candidates who can agree to internalize and live these values each and every day. We want candidates who know how to make connections and build relationships with students and the people they work with.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Interested candidates can go to our website under the District tab, Human Resources tab, then Employment Opportunities tab to apply on line. We also welcome candidates to contact: Dr. William J. Ady, Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources, 815-544-8671 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact Melissa Ramirez, Administrative Assistant for Human Resources, 815-544-8614 or email@example.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
