What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Blick is always interested in interviewing talented people who want to work for a great company. Some of the things that capture our attention most are valuable work experience, doing well in school, and having a creative flair that can be demonstrated. Those interested in joining our team can send a resume and a cover letter that includes career objectives and interests to firstname.lastname@example.org. Blick always keeps resumes on file, so even if we're not hiring at the current time, interested candidates should contact us — we may pull up resumes if we have a future opening in a particular area of expertise or career interest. Cover letters should include how and why candidates have made a positive difference in their community, college, university, and/or previous employment, and how they hope to draw on those positive experiences to make a difference at Blick.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Blick Art Materials is always interested in meeting new, interesting, and talented people. Our dozens of retail stores across the country experience higher turnover when our part-time student associates graduate and move on, so we hire for those positions throughout the year. Our distribution center in Monroe Township, New Jersey, continues to expand, and we continue to hire new associates at that facility. Last but not least, we’re always adding to our Information Technology and Information Systems teams as the company continues to grow.
