How to Get Hired
We asked Children's Healthcare of Atlanta 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?
Because Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is a pediatric healthcare organization, we seek positive applicants who are passionate about caring for children. When our recruiters look for talent, they look for people with whom they would trust their own children. Through extensive research, we found that employees who thrive at Children’s are people who are emotionally resilient, while positively impacting the lives of children and their families. They are top-tier professionals for whom making a difference is a primary driver, and they are motivated, compassionate and team-oriented. We have defined this characteristic as being Strong Enough to Care Enough, and it has driven our recruiting efforts in recent years.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Our recruiters are impressed by someone that can clearly articulate why they are passionate about pediatrics and what they will be able to bring to the table to deliver exceptional care to our patients or service to our internal staff. They also are impressed by someone who has done their research and understands our hospital system, including our locations, our units, our rankings, etc. Another great way to get our attention is for candidates to tell us upfront what they want as an applicant. A candidate should have a great elevator pitch for who they are, what they do and what they are looking for.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
