How to Get Hired
We asked Keller Schroeder 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 reach out to prospective new hires who have a passion for using technology to improve business performance, who think like owners instead of workers, and who have demonstrated they genuinely care about people. Our employee-owners hold each other accountable for results and value a balance in their life. Prospects should be able to give examples of aligning with those traits in their past. We are knowledge-sharers, not knowledge-hoarders. We search for technical businesspeople who know how to listen and communicate with our clients and with each other. Prospects must exhibit humility and an energy for maintaining a constructive, collaborative culture. Prospects that have demonstrated an ownership mindset in the interviewing process (doing research on the opportunity, bringing solid ideas about their potential contribution, and demonstrating a foundational knowledge of our company from their research) catch our attention as being a great fit in that key aspect of our culture.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
In all communication, be well-informed about who we are -- our practice areas and our culture. Have a clarity of vision regarding how you can help our company make positive, personal impacts on our other employees, our clients, and our community. Demonstrate how well you will listen to and learn about our clients by asking us good questions and listening and following up on our answers. Exhibit ownership thinking by asking us about next steps in the recruiting process, and by checking back with us on progress. At all times, demonstrate humility, hunger, and emotional intelligence that allows for success as as team player in all situations.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We are always looking for people that are energized by our culture and demonstrate a passion for helping make positive, personal impacts on people. We will be growing our diversity of services and the geography we serve in the short-term future, so we will be looking for candidates that can continue to fortify our culture and meet our growth objectives across a variety of positions.
