How to Get Hired
We asked NVIDIA 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 create complex products that no one else can, and we do so with great speed. But we’re not just looking for the industry’s brightest individuals. We’re looking for those who want to come here to do their life’s work – people who bring pride and passion, determination and drive to their work. If a person sees a tough project or roadblock as an opportunity to challenge themselves, and they’re ready to brainstorm their way through an issue, then they may be a perfect match for our company.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
We’re looking for talented people at the top of their game. When we interview candidates, we ask questions that will give us insight into the body of work they’ve created. Challenging projects that were executed with skill and determination show us that the individual has a passion for the craft.
Success stories are not all we look for when we are hiring; we also like to ask about past failures and what the candidate learned from them. Innovation happens when we learn from our mistakes, so we value those who can turn failure into an opportunity to excel in the future.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
NVIDIA is at the forefront of the revolution in artificial intelligence that’s sweeping across many industries. We’re also pushing deeply into virtual reality and self-driving cars. We’re focused on building our talent in these areas. But we strive to reach as many people as we can, as quickly as we can, with our technologies and products. This means we’re looking for innovative people who can move at a rapid pace and be comfortable making adjustments along the way.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Hiring bright, talented people who want to make a difference with their work is one of our top priorities. We search the world over for them. Interested candidates should check out career opportunities on our website.
Growing and nurturing relationships with potential employees is important to us, so we frequently attend career fairs and recruit at college campuses. Employee referrals are also very valuable for us, so candidates should reach out to anyone they know who works at NVIDIA.
