How to Get Hired
We asked Power Home Remodeling Group 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?
Power remains focused more on an individual’s personality, what drives them and what challenges they’ve had to overcome in their life versus pedigree or educational background. At most companies, they look for a person with a certain skill set or predisposition for the type of job they are looking to fill, but at Power it’s almost the opposite. We have found that hiring someone based on character can make all the difference. Skills will develop with in-depth and proper training. To find these candidates, our process includes a personality profile that reveals the key traits we are seeking, which typically include integrity, passion, optimism, positivity, being hard working and trustworthy, leadership qualities and resilience.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Power approaches the interview process differently than many companies. A potential candidate who seems to view the interview process as less of an opportunity to rattle off a list of accomplishments, strengths and weaknesses, and instead, a chance to show true leadership potential and work ethic, would definitely draw Power's attention. Potential candidates should take the time to think through examples of instances when they've had disagreements or conflicts that they were able to successfully resolve and find a way to communicate past experiences that show that when under pressure, they know how to find a solution to a problem.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
In 2017, we will be proactively looking for candidates in a few industries, including IT, communications, events, and operations as well as sales and marketing.
