How to Get Hired
We asked Influence & Co. 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?
An independent, tenacious, and respectful individual who embraces change and makes a cognizant effort to improve is likely a great fit. Our industry changes rapidly, and our clients look to us as the experts in our field, requiring our team members to constantly teach themselves new and better ways of doing things. Those who find change and the unknown exciting and motivating are the individuals we see jumping on new opportunities, taking on greater responsibility, and eventually leading the change necessary to accomplish our goals.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
A prospective employee should learn as much about our organization as possible before submitting an application or hopping on the phone with us. Prospective employees who have taken the initiative to learn about our company, the content marketing industry, our service offerings, and the position they are applying for stand out in the recruitment process. It shows us they’re self-learners, but perhaps more importantly, it shows us we’re not just another company on their list to check off. Instead, we’re a company they have sought out and are interested in becoming a part of. As corny as it sounds, we want to feel special, too!
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We’re focusing on hiring editors in this coming year! While we’ll be hiring for multiple roles, editors will be needed in two departments — client services and public relations — to ensure we’re producing high-quality content for our clients. We’re always focused on hiring candidates who would be a great fit! We don’t just hire employees to fill a position. If we find someone who's an ideal fit for our organization — someone we clearly see providing value to our team in the future but doesn’t fit into an exact role we have open today — there’s a really good chance we’d hire him or her early because we’d hate to pass up on the opportunity to have him or her on our team.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
For active candidates: Check out our “Careers” page, and submit an application for an open position. Don’t see any open positions? We still want to hear from you! Submit a contact form letting us know more about you and the type of position you’re interested in. We’ll get back to you within 48 hours!
For passive candidates interested in learning more about Influence & Co. but not actively seeking employment at the moment: Research our company, and reach out directly to anyone on our team to learn more. We welcome questions, shadowing requests, invites to grab coffee or lunch, etc., at all times!
