How to Get Hired

We asked BluSky Restoration Contractors LLC 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?

We use a combination of computer assessment, verification of resume, and a robust interview process to ensure a good fit. The computer assessment provides information on learning, verbal, and numeric skills; reasoning as well as behavior traits such as sociability, independence, energy level, and assertiveness. The resume and interview assess experience, qualifications, and fit with our company’s culture. Above all else, we are looking for individuals of high character to join our firm and we use the aforementioned tools to identify this trait. We have also found that when we identify a great team-player in the prospect's history, showing that they are clearly hard-working; have a servant/serving approach and attitude, both internally with colleagues and externally to customers; posess a very positive attitude and outlook on life; thrive in a very fast-paced and constantly changing culture; then this individual is highly likely to do well at BluSky.

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

We welcome and encourage prospective employees to use all social media forums to introduce themselves. Our website reflects our culture in the same way. BluSky also offers a robust employeed referral program that compensates employees who refer high-level potential hires to the organization. A referral that results in a hire, receives a payment of $3,000.

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

We recently profiled for and hired a high level National Marketing Director; a Regional Vice President, and are currently recruiting for two National Sales Project Directors and a Sales/Marketing support position.

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