How to Get Hired
We asked Ruby Receptionists, 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?
They feel passtionate about our mission of creating real, meaningful, personal connections in today's increasingly technology-focused, virutal world and look for ways to make someone’s day and get a kick out of making others say, “WOW!” They love a good challenge, seek ways to make things better, drive for results, and approach change with optimism. They infuse their work with their own unique personality and experiences. They put fun into professionalism and won’t hesitate to jump right in to our people-powered culture.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
They WOW us by showing off their unique personality and how it shines in their work. They share stories! We'd love to hear how they hope to make a difference, how they want to grow, and what matters to them in a workplace. They explore our core values—Foster Happiness, Practice WOWism, Create Community, Innovate, and Grow—and see if they resonate and come prepared to talk about them throughout the interview process. They make their cover letter count! Attention to detail is key; double and triple checking to show that they care about the quality of their work as much as we do. They let us know how they will add to our culture. Why Ruby? Why now?
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
