How to Get Hired
We asked Realogy Holdings Corp. 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 start by looking for expertise in your field – masters of their craft, whether in technology, sales or strategy. After learning what you do, we want to know how you do it. Does your work reflect our seven leadership attributes that we value most?
Strategic thinking: Planning for both the short and long-term.
Collaboration: Building and maintaining strong working relationships, both inside and outside the company.
Execution: Delivering, driving and defining excellent results.
Innovation: Working creatively; encouraging others to do the same.
Agility: Taking risks, changing directions, learning from your mistakes and finding better ways to do things.
Building capabilities: Growing your career; helping build a workforce consisting of top talent.
Accountability: Taking responsibility for your performance, and encouraging others to do the same.
These attributes apply to employees at every level from office administrators to executives, because at Realogy, we consider everyone to be a leader.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
You’ll attract our attention by paying attention to us. Respond quickly to our inquiries. Tailor your resume to show that your skills and experience match our needs and make sure it highlights the results you’ve achieved. Do your homework and learn about Realogy and the real estate industry before your interview. Be prepared to ask insightful, intelligent questions that will help us assess your critical thinking skills. Our strategy is built on serving agents, so tell us how your experience will help us meet that goal. A cautionary note: We encourage you to check out our managers on social media, such as LinkedIn. But don’t over-reach and make your experience mirror that of your interviewer. While we seek those who reflect our values and meet our needs, we also want employees to bring a diverse and fresh perspective to the workforce that enables us to keep moving forward.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
No matter what job you’re applying for, we’re looking for passionate leaders who can interpret and analyze data to help us serve agents across the country. This includes a wide variety of disciplines, with special focus on software engineers, marketing pros and data analysts. Your ability to make data-driven decisions will drive our competitive strategy and chart our roadmap going forward
Our 400 open positions also include instructional designers, strategy directors, digital product managers and those with expertise in artificial intelligence. In addition, we’re always looking for top talent people who can seal the deal, title examiners, escrow officers, loan processors, sales managers and representatives.
We value experienced people managers, those who recognize and develop the talent who will grow with us. Bottom line, we’re seeking those who are eager to learn, compete and excel, people who can best serve agents today and shape the future of the industry tomorrow.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Our major brands are household names – Century 21, Coldwell Banker and Sotheby’s to name just a few. Realogy, our corporate name, isn’t as familiar. Learn more about us at Realogy.com, and on social media platforms including LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Glassdoor and Indeed, among others. Employee referrals are helpful, so use your social networks to find people who already work here and get an insider’s support. We’re also widely represented in the local community, so look for charitable and industry events where we’re participating. Our leaders are active in industry associations, with emphasis on multicultural organizations, including the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals, the Asian Real Estate Association of America and the National Association of Real Estate Brokers. You can seek us out there, too. You can find open positions and apply online at Realogy.com/careers. If you’re a good match, you’ll hear from us.
