How to Get Hired
We asked Farnsworth Group, 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?
Farnsworth Group takes pride in hiring exceptional talent who are passionate about their craft. First and foremost, we seek employees that embody Farnsworth Group's core values of Integrity, Loyalty, Fairness and Competence. Farnsworth Group's core values are woven throughout the Company, and we seek prospective employees who will represent those core values both in their technical approach and client and internal relationships. We seek employees who are customer-focused and always have the best interests of our clients at the forefront. It is also important our employees are good communicators, who can interact with clients and build long-lasting partnerships and relationships. Ultimately, we look for employees who have a passion for what they do, and want to make a difference through the solutions we provide and the work we perform.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Farnsworth Group is always looking for prospective employees that can distinguish themselves from other candidates. In addition to candidates that have the necessary skill sets required for any given position, we evaluate employees for additional distinguishing characteristics such as participation in their local communities, active in professional organizations or involved in charitable and philanthropic organizations. During the interview process, we value candidates who are good communicators, and can demonstrate an ability to engage clients and market Farnsworth Group.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
In the next year, Farnsworth will focus on positions identified in the Strategic Plan as well as continuing our emphasis on executing our Succession Plan. The focus will be on engineering at all levels and disciplines including Civil, Electrical and Mechanical. In particular, we will look to bring in new graduates to grow and develop. Additionally, we will focus on positions within our Architecture discipline to meet the demands of new projects. Continuing to build infrastructure to support the technical disciplines will also be a priority over the next year.
