How to Get Hired
We asked Intuit Inc. 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 start by assessing candidates on two levels: Do they share our Values? And, have they mastered their craft? Succeeding at Intuit means living our Values. You’re bold, passionate and decisive. You’re a fast learner who can work easily across teams. You deliver awesome results. You care about the world we live in and, most important, your integrity is impeccable. On top of that, you're great at what you do. If you’re early in your career, we expect you to want to grow and learn. If you’re more experienced, we want you to keep that thirst for learning and be willing to teach others. No matter what your level or where you are in your career, we want you to embrace and enhance our culture and help us get to where we want to go, while we give you an opportunity to get where you want to go.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
As a perennial industry and workplace leader, Intuit is flooded with resumes. Standing out starts with building a great resume, portfolio or a compelling online profile. Then find a way to get inside Intuit. Be fearless. Start by networking through events and conferences, but don’t hesitate to reach out directly to employees. In an interview, demonstrate that you share our love of the customer problem. Walk in our customers’ shoes and launch a free trial of one of our products before an initial phone or in-person interview. “When a candidate takes the time to understand firsthand what our customers experience, then comes to the interview prepared with intelligent insights and questions about both the product and customer experience, it always leaves a lasting impression,” says Brett Coin, director of talent acquisition.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Intuit seeks candidates who are passionate about pursuing meaningful innovation to improve the lives of millions and power prosperity around the world. As technology and customer needs change, we change too. Data-driven thinkers, machine learning enthusiasts and early career candidates with a craving to build products serving their generation are just a flavor of who we seek. We also look for talented product managers and software engineers who love building global, cloud-based mobile experiences for their customers. We recruit creative professionals with a mission to test the frontiers of design and user experience. We seek sharp-minded product managers to help Intuit take the end-to-end product experience to the next level. Our Assessing for Awesome recruiting process ensures we hire only the top talent, while exceeding expectations of both the hiring manager and candidates.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Go online and familiarize yourself with our products and the company. Use your personal and social networks to learn more about the company. And then, don't hesitate to contact Intuit directly. Our leaders, recruiters and employees are very accessible through LinkedIn, Facebook, live communities and other social media. "Online is perhaps the easiest and most efficient way," says Nick Mailey, vice president of talent acquisition. "Reach out to us and have a conversation. Don't be afraid to contact a recruiter or leader. Give us a call. Email us. Tweet us." Getting a referral from a friend at Intuit is a plus. We place a high value on employee referrals, often rewarding those whose candidates are hired.
