How to Get Hired
We asked Matrix Service Company 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?
The key characteristics that tell us a prospective employee will be a great fit for our organization revolve around the behavioral based competencies required for the role and alignment with our core values. Inherent in these core values are a focus on organizational success as well as a passion, commitment and enthusiasm for what we do while demonstrating confidence, leading by example, and encouraging employee engagement, teamwork, creativity, and collaboration through open, positive communication. We are looking for individuals that know how to earn trust and respect through integrity, ability, humility, courage, conviction and accountability.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
We encourage individuals to start by reviewing the job posting in detail and spend time researching the Company and our business lines. In reviewing the job posting, prospective employees can view the competencies and skills required for the position. We encourage individuals to highlight those skill sets on their resume. If a certain skill is lacking, cover letters can help explain and offer both the solutions for addressing the deficit and why the candidate would be a great fit for the position, regardless. In addition, we are impressed when candidates have done their research on the organization and can speak to their alignment with our values, the role, and past successes they have had that align with the position. Further, we love it when individuals engage with us on social media.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

A critical focus area for us is skilled craft workers and field professionals, who represent the lifeblood of our organization. Recruiting and retaining the very best tradespeople and project professionals in the industry is crucial to our organization.
