How to Get Hired
We asked Hyland 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 encourage individuality and new and different perspectives when seeking out potential Hylanders. But there are definitely some universal attributes we look for to ensure candidates match the company’s vision and values. When the HR team conducts the first round of interviews, the primary focus is on culture fit to make sure this person will thrive in our environment. At Hyland, employees are most successful when they exhibit qualities of adaptability and the desire and ability to learn. We rely on self-starters who are always willing to offer help, ideas and expertise – regardless of position or job title – which means we look for team players who enjoy collaboration, but who are also self-motivated. Hylanders are a passionate bunch, so anyone who takes pride in a job well done can usually find a place here. And a passion for technology doesn’t hurt.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
When we interview candidates, it’s our job to get to know them. Similarly, it’s their job to get to know Hyland – even before they apply. Prep work is evident in applications and the interview process. The application itself includes a section in which candidates write a poem; showing creativity and enthusiasm here goes a long way. There are many ways to connect with us and “get to know the #HylandLife” as we often say on Hyland.com and on our social properties, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. Candidates can seek out our new Hyland-specific blog and social profiles on Facebook and Twitter, where they can engage with our culture. We are growing and there is more to Hyland than OnBase (our prominent software platform), so if candidates can speak knowledgably about our other products like ShareBase and LawLogix, they'll make the impression that they are curious and motivated.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We are focusing on hiring internationally, and in sales, marketing and operations, as we grow our global presence and move into new regions and territories. We will need to fill gaps that are arising as new business and leadership roles evolve. The need for these roles is a direct reflection of our success as an organization.
While a background in B2B software and international experience are important, we put a strong emphasis on cultural fit. If candidates exhibit a customer-first mindset and have the motivation to learn and collaborate, we are much more likely to consider them for a position.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
The best way to find out about our current openings is to check out Hyland.com/careers, where candidates can search for up-to-date opportunities and submit an online application. They can connect with Hyland’s recruiting team by registering at the careers site and providing an email address to receive updates on new jobs and opportunities. Candidates should check out the Hyland blog, find us on LinkedIn and “like” us on Facebook, as well as follow us on Twitter and Instagram, where they can learn more about the #HylandLife. We often post information about job opportunities on social media, as well as general info about our business, career events and culture. Candidates should also reach out to their professional network. If they have connections to people who work at Hyland, they may be able to get a referral from a current Hylander to include in their online application.
