How to Get Hired
We asked Comcast NBCUniversal 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?
Comcast NBCUniversal is looking for dynamic, entrepreneurial, innovative thinkers who are drawn to a collaborative and teamwork-focused culture. We recruit and hire solution-oriented individuals who take initiative, move quickly and execute well. Candidates who think “customer first” – while being business savvy, energetic and solutions oriented – are a great fit. Prospective employees must be curious individuals with a passion to learn, grow their expertise, and stay current on the latest news and information that surrounds the media, technology and television industries. Ideal candidates are agile, quick thinking and bright, while also being adaptable. We are constantly evolving and leading in our industry; prospective employees should anticipate doing the same.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Prospective employees should be intentional in their job search with Comcast NBCUniversal. They should educate themselves about the needs of our many businesses and find an open role that aligns with their skill set and sensibilities, which piques their interests and passions. They should also look for opportunities to engage and network with existing employees though a wide variety of community events. When interviewing, individuals should do their research to understand the role as best they can while studying the company’s history and business. In order to stand out, candidates should speak to their leadership capabilities, solutions orientation, customer focus and appreciation for collaboration and resiliencies. Candidates should ensure their story is shared while providing their value proposition. Most important, is authenticity – while we want to see a candidate’s strength and creativity, it is most important to us to get to know who they are as a person.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Comcast is looking for customer-centric candidates with great passion for technology, innovation, entertainment and media. While we are always growing our teams, this year we are heavily focused on filling positions within our technology and product teams, customer experience team, retail stores, advertising sales, and discovering strong, change-making, leader-level candidates with experience in financial planning and analysis, business intelligence, big data and advanced advertising expertise, and who have global experience. NBCUniversal is looking for great digital media talent in technology, journalism, content and sales; technology-based talent skilled in everything from backend infrastructure to front-end web and software development; and data scientists with experience in the use of statistical techniques and analytical modeling. Across all businesses we welcome Veterans, Active Reservists and Military Spouses to join us, as we appreciate their service and experience and recognize the ways in which they can translate their skills to add to our success.
