How to Get Hired
We asked Quora, Inc. 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?
Aside from the expertise required for the job, it is important for prospective employee to align with the core values of Quora. Quora's 5 core values as an organization are:
Mission First. We place long-term, collective impact ahead of personal achievement.
Drive. We aim high and do whatever it takes to get things done.
Agility. We are nimble in our processes and systems, ready to adapt to a changing world.
Awareness. We are rigorous in our decisions and candid in our communication.
Pragmatism. We stay grounded in the outcomes that truly matter for our mission.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Our company mission is to share and grow the world's knowledge and it is great to see prospective employees with the same passion. Prospective employees can write and contribute to content on Quora as well as develop and promote their own personal projects. These projects can be either industry specific or a passion/area of interest.
