How to Get Hired
We asked Fisher Investments 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?
Fisher Investments looks for the following in outside talent: unrelenting work ethic, track record of success, stellar communication abilities, a drive to succeed and a willingness to learn. Fisher rewards employees who embody loyalty, flexibility and a will-do spirit. What is not necessarily needed is prior investment experience. Employees who have a diverse background help us continue our mission to better the investment universe.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Prospective Fisher Investments employees will get our attention by demonstrating strong communication skills, specifically being able to relate their personal experiences to the working world. Being able to speak about their wins and how they’ve been challenged. We’re also looking for candidates who have a willingness to take calculated risk. But one of the biggest areas that can help us better understand if they’re a good fit is to be genuine and show introspection.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Fisher Investments is hiring individuals of all experiences, tenures and skill levels across the firm. The largest number of positions is on our client service team. We are always interested in Financial Advisors who are frustrated with many of the accepted norms of the industry and want to serve clients as an Investment Counselor. We are always looking to add to our inside sales team, Account Executive, where individuals of all experience who thrive in a competitive environment succeed. We are also looking for entry-level candidates who can work in either operations or analytics to fill our Investment Associate positions.
