How to Get Hired
We asked CustomInk 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 look for candidates who demonstrate a natural fit for our Core Values (Golden Rule, Ownership and Innovation) and company character. Candidates who also demonstrate attributes toward treating others well, working hard, taking pride in their work, and seeking feedback for continuous growth definitely stand out. We’re looking for that Inker spark, people who are authentic and positive in all that they do.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Presenting a polished first impression that is genuine and professional goes a long way. Candidates who have taken the time to get to know CustomInk, our Core Values, and what makes our team unique gets our attention. We have a very in depth interview process and candidates who do their homework can demonstrate their enthusiasm and excitement as early in the process as our online application, which includes a cover letter, resume, and a questionnaire.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We’ve been fortunate to see growth across all areas of the business year over year, a trend that we don’t see slowing down!
We are expanding our presence in the Dallas/Forth Worth area in 2015 and will expand our search to include operational roles there as well as a variety of roles in our other locations.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
All of our applications start online! We encourage interested candidates to visit our jobs page (customink.com/about/jobs/openings) for the most up-to-date postings. Our website is chock-full of information about our customers, the business, our growth story, leadership and, of course, open jobs. Check out our streaming, uncensored customer reviews to see what matters to our customers and the many ways Inkers can have an impact. Our 'Ink of the Week" program (customink.com/photos) is another awesome way to see first-hand the pride and passion our customers' have for the custom products they design with us. We also love to meet candidates in person at industry and university events, and we encourage candidates to follow us on social media and/or sign up for email alerts to be notified when a job that fits their interests becomes open.
