How to Get Hired
We asked Ernst & Young LLP 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?
A great fit starts with the right technical knowledge and skills. Characteristics like an inclination toward solving complex problems, being able to analyze data for trends and opportunities, and the ability to adapt to varying circumstances are also important. We look for candidates with a global mindset so we are confident the prospective employee will be able to succeed in our global business environment. One characteristic that elevates a fit from good to great is passion to make the world work better. EY’s purpose — building a better working world — is behind everything we do. It is the legacy we’re creating for our people, clients and communities. When we meet someone who shares our purpose and desire to leave a legacy for others, has the right skills and knowledge, and has the drive to help clients succeed, we know that person will likely be a great fit at EY.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
To stand out to our recruiters, candidates need to demonstrate technical knowledge in their discipline but also be polished in all areas of their presentation. From a well-designed and concise résumé to the ability to articulate clearly what they are looking for and what they have to offer in return, prospective employees get our attention when their hard skills and soft skills come together in a complete package. Because so much of our business depends on our ability to deliver exceptional client service, candidates who can demonstrate the ability to be insightful and responsive in varying environments really command our attention. Standout candidates will show us that they share our purpose-driven approach to serving clients and thrive in high-performance teaming environments.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Year after year, we continue to grow by double-digit percentages, which means great opportunities exist in all of our service lines. The fastest-growing service line is our Advisory practice, which has grown 20% annually over the past five years. We have high demand for individuals with digital, data analytics, strategy consulting, cybersecurity, robotics and technology enablement experience. We also continue to have high demand for auditors, tax consultants, and organizational change and transaction advisory professionals.
