How to Get Hired
We asked Healthwise, Incorporated 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?
Healthwise is a global provider of health information, decision support tools, behavior change assistance, and personal care planning for the top health plans, care management companies, hospitals, and consumer health portals. Each year, millions of people use our content and tools to manage their health, make better health decisions, and live healthier lives. Our most successful candidates are innovative, motivated, and dedicated. We look for hard-working team players who are passionate about what they do. We look for employees who embrace our culture and can combine dedication to our mission with a commitment to work/life balance.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
To set themselves apart from the rest, prospective employees should do their homework on Healthwise—learn who we are, what we do, and why we do it. While it is amazing that employees can bring their dog to work (yes, we really allow that), there is so much more to our organization. Take some time to learn about us, and then be ready to share how your background, skill set, and experience can help us take things forward.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
While the types of open positions vary from year to year, the focus on our people does not. Above all, we believe that our people are the most important part of our nonprofit organization. We look for individuals who can embody our culture of Respect, Teamwork, and Do the Right Thing while furthering our mission to help people make better health decisions.
