How to Get Hired
We asked Kaiser Permanente 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?
At Kaiser Permanente, our passion to drastically improve the health and lives of our members drives us to continually advance our practice. We do this by pioneering preventive medicine, conducting comprehensive research, and driving innovative care. Our commitment to make lives better is a promise that goes beyond our 11+ million members and more than 200,000 employees and physicians. It extends to the neighborhoods in which we live, the communities we serve, and the planet we call home. We embrace our members, colleagues, and communities as family, and work tirelessly to improve their wellness and quality of life. We also fundamentally believe that the expert care we deliver should be equally available to all. In short, we care. We advocate. We give. We thrive. And we do it all with the utmost sincerity and passion every day. If these characteristics resonate with you, please consider joining us.

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
With more than 200,000 employees and physicians on the Kaiser Permanente team, we have career opportunities that range from care delivery to business and IT. While every career area is vital to the services we provide to our members, it's no surprise that nursing represents a significant portion of our workforce. Our nurse professionals embody what it means to provide the best patient interactions possible. They also advance the art and science of nursing in a patient-centered, healing environment. We believe that every interaction — whether it is with a patient, a colleague, a physician, or anyone else — has the potential to be extraordinary. No matter where you are in your nursing career, the size and scope of our organization means you have the resources, technology, tools, and support you need to make a lasting impact.
