How to Get Hired
We asked Blach Construction Company 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 we interview prospective new employees, we specifically look for employees that embody the characteristics listed in our Blach Construction Success Criteria. These are qualities that encompass a successful Blach employee, listed under the four larger categories of I.Q. (intelligence quotient), E.Q. (emotional intelligence quotient), technical skills, and drive.
A few examples of characteristics listed under the Blach Success Criteria are: excellent interpersonal skills, exhibits strong leadership qualities, outstanding technical skills, values match with those of the company, highly intelligent, great team player, passion for construction, exhibits strong initiative, and gives colleagues the benefit of the doubt.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
One of the most important things we are looking for in prospective employees is a genuine passion for construction and a clear interest in working for Blach, specifically. We appreciate when candidates have done thorough research on the company and truly understand what we do.
Also, prospective employees can catch our interest by having a positive attitude and being open and flexible, even throughout the interview process. We look for candidates whose values match those of the company and whom we can see as fitting in seamlessly with our people and our culture.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
One of our main focus areas as a company is attracting and retaining highly skilled carpenters and foremen who can grow into our future Superintendents. We have placed a strong emphasis on identifying the outstanding carpenters and foremen, and then pairing them with some of our highly skilled Superintendents who have been in the business for many years. We are hoping to transfer over the knowledge of our current Superintendents to our up-and-comers in order to set the company up for even more success in the future.
Another strong focus in our hiring is on our diversity recruiting, specifically aiming to hire minority candidates and women in construction. We have an incredibly diverse company already, but we want to continue our efforts so we are able to attract and retain a diverse group of high-performing employees in all areas of the company.
