How to Get Hired
We asked OhioHealth 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 strive to hire associates who have great skills and understand and embrace our culture. We seek out candidates who can share personal experiences and exhibit behaviors that exemplify our core values of integrity, excellence, stewardship and compassion — all of which help ensure a good culture fit at OhioHealth. Specific characteristics we look for in people are those who strive for excellence, embrace innovation and change, and hold themselves accountable. These individuals are humble, courteous and respectful, are able to connect with others and demonstrate a willingness to build trusting relationships. They are collaborative, support each other, communicate openly and honestly, are good listeners, seek to understand the needs of others, and value the uniqueness and differences in others. Finally, people who share in our spirit of giving back to the community, and are committed to their own health and wellness are an especially great fit for OhioHealth.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
OhioHealth associates are passionate in both heart and mind about our mission and serving patients and each other with compassion and excellence. They approach their work as a calling more than a job, understanding that compassion is every bit as important to the patient experience as expertise and technical skills. Candidates will stand out to OhioHealth when they can point to experiences and accomplishments both in and out of the workplace that exhibit our core values and demonstrate they can meet job expectations. Those who have a strong sense of self-awareness and can articulate not only their strengths but also areas where they might need development and growth are viewed as having strong potential. In a large organization such as ours, candidates can also stand out by networking and making connections with individuals who work in their areas of interest, whether through professional organizations, personal outreach or even volunteer opportunities.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Staff nurses (RNs) for specialty areas, such as the Operating Room and Critical Care, are always in high demand. We also continue to seek out individuals to work in ancillary support areas, such as Pharmacy and Laboratory — specifically, board-certified pharmacy technicians, certified pharmacy techs and medical technologists. The role of medical assistant is critical to the success of our physician practice groups and in high demand locally. We’re also looking for leaders with strong experience in multi-site and matrix organizations, organizational integration and change management. As with all roles, we are looking for individuals who are strong culture fits, represent our core values and who look for innovative and patient-focused work solutions.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Visit the OhioHealth career website at www.jobsatohiohealth.com to review job openings and apply for positions of interest. We encourage candidates to focus their job search versus applying for all jobs for which they believe they might be qualified. If contacted for an interview, learning as much as possible about the organization and being prepared with specific questions always reflects well on the candidate.
