How to Get Hired
We asked ReliaQuest 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?
ReliaQuest hires for three characteristics: Attitude, Energy and Effort. We look for individuals who embrace challenges as opportunities, who value the people they work with, who have a drive to learn, who are "all in." We believe that everything else can be taught - especially given our investment in continuous training via ReliaQuest University.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Things on a resume we like to see are self-study and extracurriculars relevant to professional goals. This can be groups/associations/ certifications. Anything that shows genuine interest in the subject and initiative to better themselves.
On job applications, we like to see candidates that have put thought into why they are interested in joining our company and how their experience relates to what we are looking for. Not a standard one-size-fits-all approach, something personalized.
During interviews we like to see passion. Genuine excitement and enthusiasm is a requirement at ReliaQuest. We also like to see have done their homework on us and are prepared with questions during the interviews.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We are hiring in every department in the company to support our rapid growth.
The highest volume of positions are in our Security Operations Center, including Engineering, Threat Management, and Security Analysts. All position descriptions can be found on our company website. In 2018-2019, ReliaQuest will have increased efforts in building out the recruiting, marketing, and accounting teams, as well as adding employees to its Las Vegas and Dublin security operations centers.
