How to Get Hired
We asked Goldberg Segalla 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 extremely particular about the people we bring into the Goldberg Segalla community. The three most important characteristics we look for in candidates are: 1) they are excellent at whatever it is they do and an even better human being; 2) they demonstrate what we perceive to be the attributes to become a dynamic leader of our present or future; and 3) they desire to work in a team-oriented culture where everyone’s goal is always to achieve the synergies that will help us fulfill our common mission — exceeding our clients’ expectations — together. We recognize that our environment is not for everyone, but it is one we believe in, and one to which we have pledged allegiance. It is what fueled our growth from seven founding partners to more than 240 lawyers in 14 offices in only 14 years.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
What kinds of candidates get our attention? Those who put their clients and teammates first, recognizing that what a team accomplishes together is far greater than the sum of all individual gains. We are impressed by those who demonstrate confidence without ego or attitude. And, most importantly, we are interested in those who show the ability to lead by example, respectfully and selflessly. When filling any position, we are looking for those who could be the leaders of our future — show us you have that desire and that ability, and you will stand out above the rest.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We are actively seeking lawyers for all offices, and all practice areas, at all levels. On the administrative side, we are looking to expand in areas that include accounting, billing, information technology, and quality assurance. Although our growth has been historically dynamic, we have grown more in recent years than ever before — and our growth will continue to be methodical and strategic, as it has always been.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
We encourage anyone who believes they fit our criteria to contact our Human Resources team at 716.566.5400 or visit us online at www.goldbergsegalla.com/grow-with-us.
