How to Get Hired
We asked Peppercomm 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?
Curiosity - The best candidates can demonstrate that they're life-long learners, and that they don't just go with the status quo, but rather display and present an intellectual case for alternative perspectives.
Drive and Ownership - People who set goals and accomplish them, who see problems not as obstacles, but as opportunities fit in well we here. We look for people who will wrok together as a team towards success and own their part of that puzzle.
Humor - This goes without saying. We like to bring on people who can bring levity to a situation; a person others in the firm and our client base want to work with...people who take the work seriously, but have fun while they keep at it.
Empathy - This is a team-based business and a service-based business. People who care about others and care to understand their experiences and perspectives are critical.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Prospective employees stand out when they know our business and our culture. They understand what our organization stands for and is doing, and can connect their experience to those areas. They've done their research and are crafty in how they develop connections at the firm and demonstrate a consistent desire to join the team.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Analytics - We're looking to bring in an expanded skill set around data science and marketing science.
