How to Get Hired
We asked Plante & Moran, PLLC 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?
Plante Moran is focused on proving best in class client service. As a result, we look for well-rounded, self-motivated individuals who have a passion to serve and a desire to lead. Plante Moran prides itself on following the Golden Rule, meaning that we respect one another and work together in a positive, team oriented environment. Candidates need to be comfortable in ambiguous situations that require problem solving strategies and collaboration. Possessing a drive to learn, and to share knowledge, is key to a candidate’s success as both are built into our culture through formal, and informal training. Other key characteristics include integrity, strong communication skills, and a long term focus on building a career, not just having a job.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Follow us on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook. Use these resources to get to know Plante Moran, and learn information beyond what’s on the homepage of our website. When candidates ask detailed questions about the industries we serve, the services we offer, or what we’re up to in our communities, it shows us they’re truly interested in the firm. Don’t be afraid to showcase enthusiasm. Stand out from the crowd!
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Plante Moran is focused on attracting top-talent to the firm –– especially in the area of tax, where there's a high level of competition from all types of organizations for CPAs with strong technical tax expertise. We also have an increasing need for expertise in the business advisory/consulting areas, where individuals have technical knowledge coupled with consulting and practice development experience in the areas of technology, operational effectiveness, financial advisory services, business advisory services, human capital, and international business services. As our clients' business strategies mature, we strive to provide the expertise needed to be an effective and highly-sought-after trusted advisor. We also have an ongoing hiring strategy for recruiting and developing interns and entry-level candidates from campus.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
While careers.plantemoran.com is the starting point for anyone interested in working with us, we also encourage candidates to research the firm, connect with us on social media, and engage in some of our various networking opportunities. In addition to our careers site, where we list open positions and accept applications, our staffing consultants post jobs through online boards such as Indeed, Careerbuilder, and other organizations like alumni sites or industry associations. Plantemoran.com is another great resource to learn more about the firm. There you’ll find our firm magazine, articles, media mentions and upcoming webinars. You’ll also find links to firm blogs, where several firm leaders share their expertise(i.e. Gordon Krater, Managing Partner; Raj Patel, Cyber Security; Betsy Rust, Health Care). Finally, as a firm, we engage in various activities to identify, engage, and recruit passive and active individuals for opportunities here at the firm. You’ll see us on multiple college campuses throughout our geographic footprint, along with a number of tradeshows, association meetings, and/or industry events across the country.
