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?
We’re focused on proving best in class client service. We look for well-rounded, self-motivated individuals who have a passion to serve and a desire to lead. We pride ourselves 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 then sharing that knowledge — are 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?
Demonstrate your knowledge of and interest in the firm. Ask detailed questions about the industries we serve, the services we offer, or what we’re up to in our communities. Don’t be afraid to showcase enthusiasm and stand out from the crowd!
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
A significant area of focus is tax. While we’ll continue to seek out campus hires for entry-level tax positions, we're experiencing an increased demand for highly skilled tax professionals with public accounting experience. Additionally, opportunities are growing for skilled professionals in management consulting as well as a variety of business advisory services.
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 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 story, interesting case studies, and a variety of our articles, podcasts, and webinars. And, of course, you’ll find information on the services we provide and the industries we provide them to.
Finally, our team is driven to engage with top-notch passive and active candidates. Our consultants visit college campuses and attend select tradeshows throughout our geographic footprint and beyond.
