How to Get Hired

We asked Collaborative Solutions 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?

Collaborative Solutions is built on talented, hardworking professionals. These individuals are flexible and supportive of each other. They have excellent follow up and follow through, and they show great passion for the work they do and compassion for the customers they work with. Any prospect with proven success in these areas is likely to be a great fit for Collaborative.

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

Reach out, more than once, and do so creatively. Collaborative Solutions receives dozens of applications each day, and a well-crafted, thoughtful cover letter or LinkedIn InMail will ensure someone takes a good look at your resume or profile. And do your homework! To set yourself apart from other prospects, make sure you know what Collaborative and Workday are all about. Don’t forget to visit the careers page of the Collaborative website frequently and follow social media accounts (LinkedIn, Glassdoor, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram). Interacting with us on social media is a great way to learn more about the culture here (and get noticed by the People Services team).

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

In 2017,  Collaborative Solutions will be hiring across all departments within our organization. We're seeking hardworking, talented individuals with fresh ideas and perspectives. Whether you're just getting started in your career, looking to take your role in a new direction, or wanting to expand your skill set within Workday or consulting, we likely have an opportunity for you. 

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

There are a few candidates can find further information on our opportunities: Visit the careers page of our website frequently (we post new positions often); reach out to any one of our recruiters on LinkedIn (they are happy to assist); and follow our social media accounts (LinkedIn, Glassdoor, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram).
