How to Get Hired
We asked LONG Building Technologies, 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?
Though some positions certainly require knowledge and certain aptitudes – mechanical or technical, for instance – to perform, LONG often hires based off a person’s work ethic and can-do attitude. We look for candidates who are driven, adaptable, resourceful, detail-oriented and quick learners.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Candidates who still take the time to put together a cover letter that really addresses LONG and the position, and why they are applying, really stand out in the mix of all the other candidates. We like to see that candidates have taken the time to research the company, via our website/Glassdoor/LinkedIn/Facebook/Etc. It also helps if a person calls with a follow-up to an application as that gets them front-and-center in our screenings.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Our big hiring focus continues to be on candidates who are looking for long-term career opportunities with growth. We at LONG pride ourselves on growing our employees into more senior level and management positions over time, so those candidates who expressly state they are looking for long-term growth opportunities stand out to us. Types of positions that are a big focus for us include: Controls Technicians, Service Technicians, Account Executives, Estimators, and Project Managers.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
As previously mentioned, a good starting point is researching the company. Our website provides great information about who we our – including the Three Cs – as well as what we do. Glassdoor is an excellent resource for perspective candidates to find out what current and past employees have to say about working for LONG, and social media – Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram – showcase things like community involvement, events, training, promotions, etc. From there, researching available positions, applying, and reaching out to the recruiter would be the next steps.
