        How to Get Hired

        We asked Grantek 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?

        Candidates that stand out to us will tend to demonstrate: an action orientated drive, plus are ambitious, enthusiastic (for learning), detailed orientated, and possess a leadership quality. They are also honest, detail orientated, and success driven.

        What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

        The best way you can gain our attention is to always be clear, concise, and honest.  When sending us your resume, it's best to indicate a statement as to why you would like to be a part of the Grantek team. Consider highlighting some of your key skills and career goals. 

        Are there any unusual or especially rigorous steps of your hiring process that candidates should be aware of?

        Our hiring process is fairly straight forward - we start with a phone screen with our Recruiter, then a face-to-face interview with a hiring Manager. We are transparent through the process; therefore candidates should feel free to ask any question at all about the company, our culture, or the job. They will also have an opportunity to speak with the CEO at the final interview stage.

        Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

        Grantek is focused on building the future; we invest heavily in new graduates.  Also for the coming year, we will be hiring senior Engineers that are looking to have an opportunity to mentor junior hires. 

        What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

        Interested candidates should review the Grantek careers webpage.  All job opportunities are kept up to date; candidates are able to apply directly through our website. New applications are reviewed daily and any candidate that is deemed to be a fit will receive a phone interview from the recruiter.
