How to Get Hired
We asked First American Financial Corporation 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 are drawn to qualified candidates who are professional and trustworthy, focused on delivering exceptional customer service and who exhibit leadership potential. We also look for candidates with a solid work history, have a genuine interest in the industry, and those who exhibit emotional intelligence. Chairman of the Board Parker Kennedy says, “First American has always been about people. My father Don Kennedy had a simple hiring philosophy during his time as CEO—if he liked someone enough to invite him or her home to dinner, that person was hired. His vision was instrumental in taking the company from a local to a national and, eventually, a global organization.”
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Prospective employees can differentiate themselves by displaying excellence in their areas of expertise as well as showing evidence of having utilized that all important customercentric approach in previous roles. Our business success is due to the relationships we have made with clients, so candidates must prove their interpersonal skills. It is also key for candidates to follow up when they say they will. We look for people who exhibit our values of integrity and service.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
