How to Get Hired
We asked Cleveland Clinic 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 hiring caregivers, we look for qualities that we believe will enable them to be successful in their roles. We look for caregivers who embody our six core values – quality, innovation, teamwork, service, integrity and compassion. All Cleveland Clinic employees – from the shuttle bus driver to the CEO- identify themselves as “caregivers.” Being a caregiver describes our united behavior. Our credo is that every life deserves world-class care. We hire caregivers who can support our “Patients First” mission and provide outstanding care to our patients and their families. We look for the best and brightest in the respective fields.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Prospective employees should spend time on our website and social media channels to learn about our organization and culture. They should come to their interview prepared with questions not only about the specific position, but also Cleveland Clinic itself. As a global healthcare leader, we look for individuals to join our team who are innovative and demonstrate a serving leadership quality. In other words, we look for people who show us they understand that the growth and development of their team means success for all of us.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We are especially focused on hiring nurses in 2015. To that end, we are hosted three nurse recruitment fairs in the community and hired over 700 nurses throughout our enterprise.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Candidates should learn more about our organization and model of healthcare delivery as a physician-led, patient-centered organization. Visit our website (clevelandclinic.org) or connect with us through social media for a glimpse into our culture and what makes Cleveland Clinic a great place to work and grow.
