How to Get Hired
We asked Edward Jones 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?
Whatever your background, we look for 10 compentencies in prospective candidates: a commitment to put the client's interest first, plus the ability to plan and organize, set a vision, build relationships, communicate openly, develop oneself and lead a branch team. We also want people with a strong work ethic, self confidence and the ability to understand clients' needs and advise them.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Put our clients' interests first. Believe in a quality-oriented, long-term investment philosophy. Value working in partnership. Value and respect individuals and their contributions.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We are particularly focused on hiring financial advisors to deliver personalized investment solutions to help clients work toward their long-term financial goals; develop and deepen client relationships; and build an Edward Jones branch in one's community.
