How to Get Hired
We asked HoneyBook 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?
HoneyBook stands by its core values, and rather than looking for “culture fits”, we hire “core values fits” because these are the guiding principles for the company. Our employees are entrepreneurial, collaborative, tenacious, curious, positive, and mission-driven. We look for these competencies in all prospective employees. Prospective employees should be passionate, both in their work and their life outside of work, and wish to share that passion with others. HoneyBook employees are unique and come from diverse backgrounds. We value authenticity and prospective employees should bring their whole self to work.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
While cover letters are optional in HoneyBook’s application process, our talent team reads through every single letter that is submitted. Writing a notable cover letter is a sure way to get the talent team’s attention. Cover letters that express interest in not only the role, but more importantly, interest in HoneyBook as a company, stand out. Every employee is considered a builder of HoneyBook and we look for people who rally behind our mission and want to take HoneyBook to the next level.
We also champion the power of referrals. If you have a 1st, 2nd, or even 3rd degree HoneyBook employee in your network, leverage them throughout the interview process.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
