How to Get Hired
We asked Etsy 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 competencies that show alignment to our company’s mission and values. We look for: adaptability, authenticity, collaboration, communication, craftsmanship, leadership, passion, resilience, resourcefulness, self-awareness, self-management, humility, kindness, empathy, bias-to-action, and candidates who are purpose-driven.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
The most effective way for a candidate to stand out is to provide a well-written cover letter, completed homework assignments, share a portfolio or other documentation of work. We want to hear about you and your interests, in your own words.
