How to Get Hired
We asked Elevate 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 find that certain people have the “Elevate” factor – risk takers, innovators and high achievers. We have found that the best employees have a combination of wicked intelligence, directness when faced with a challenge, passion for change, curious outlook, exceptional work ethic and a collaborative spirit.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
We’re searching for individuals who challenge the status quo. What excites you about Elevate? How do you feel about what we’re doing and the direction we’re headed? We want to get a sense of how you think and hear your ideas. After all, our company’s success is built from a collaborative platform. At Elevate, the bar is high. Another way to get our attention is to exhibit a strong sense of ownership in your career. Do you have an entrepreneurial spirit? We want to see it. Plus, we like to have fun and don’t take ourselves too seriously. Do you enjoy the outdoors? Do you have any unique talents? We want to get to know you.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We are committed to cutting edge analytics and technology; quality execution, and providing a prime customer experience. We are looking for candidates who have a passion for these commitments and will help us push ourselves and the industry to new heights. Also, as part of our Agile Transformation, we are focused heavily on candidates who embrace the Agile principles and thrive in this collaborative, fast-paced environment.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Prospective candidates interested in career opportunities with Elevate can engage with us through our social media channels as well as visit www.elevate.com/careers. Our careers page not only provides insight to what we value, and the perks we offer, but it provides a snapshot of our employees so candidates can see how they will fit in. Our organization’s motto is, “The business is serious. The office isn’t.” We like to have fun and we want candidates who embrace a casual environment without a dress code or fancy offices. While we have fun, we also take our values seriously, which is why they are at the forefront of our careers page. Our values guide every aspect of our business; so much so that each employee’s review is based 50% on how they live the values of, “Think Big, Do the Right Thing, Win Together and Raise the Bar.”
