How to Get Hired
We asked Eleven Inc. 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 described earlier (7.3) how seriously we take our company’s values and behaviors, and that we’ve incorporated them into our interview process—some through explicit questions, others through observation. Our five company values are originality, curiosity, ambition, passion and ownership. Our five company behaviors are generosity, thoughtfulness, integrity, persuasiveness and respect.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Prospective employees will get our attention by doing great/smart/clever/interesting work. Having a robust online presence makes it easy to get on our radar. As does landing on a ‘best of’ list or participation on a panel. The easiest way of all though is an introduction or referral made by an employee, client, vendor or friend of the Agency.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We are focused on hiring 'T shaped' employees - individuals who have deep knowledge and skills in a particular area of specialization, along with the desire and ability to make connections across disciplines. Additionally we are focused on hiring people who will help us continue to grow our digital, analytical and experience design practice groups.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Networking is a great way to get started - find a connection and reach out. Alternatively, people are always welcome to stop by without an appointment. We’re an approachable bunch and we like showing off our space. It's likely that more than a handshake will be offered, and a great way to get the feel of the place.
