How to Get Hired
We asked Ruby+Associates, 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?
At Ruby, to get in the door, we seek people who are passionate about the work that we do, and the clients we serve. Next, we look to our core values as the foundation when evaluating candidates. We need people who will deliver unmatched client service – so we look for people who have experience serving others, whether through being a Teaching Assistant, or being a volunteer in a student-run organization. We need engineers who embrace challenges, so we look for those who have shown perseverance. We need our people to be leaders in their work, so we seek those with experience in leading capstone projects. We need people who will be continuous learners so we look for those who have invested in themselves in their free time.
And through our recruiting process, they need to show us these qualities all while remaining humble in the process.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Prospective employees get our attention when they have done enough homework and research about Ruby and truly understand what makes us different. If they are able to articulate that difference and their passion for that difference when approaching us either via email or at a career fair, they get our attention. Since we look for our entry-level engineers at the top ranked universities, who prepare them through course work, internships and leadership opportunities, we know they are going to be technically qualified – so that is not the differentiator. Many of our recruits have always been the smartest person in the room. At Ruby you will never be the smartest person in the room, and you have to be OK with that. So in their brilliance, they must also be humble. We have no use for egos here.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Ruby+Associates is always looking for qualified structural engineers. This year, we are looking for experienced structural engineers with strong leadership skills . We want leaders that can manage, motivate and coach our younger engineers. Transfer of knowledge is key as we continue to grow. We owe it to our staff to provide a clear career path, offering challenging opportunities and mentoring along the way!
