How to Get Hired
We asked SAS Institute 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?
SAS looks for people that understand who we are and what we do. We are innovators. If you embrace risk, pursue creativity, thrive on relationships and have the skills and knowledge to boot, that’s the kind of match we want.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
SAS seeks more than skills and experience. We want colleagues who will contribute to the unique culture that makes SAS such a great place to work. Candidates must demonstrate that they have what is at the very heart of SAS – innovation and creativity as well as qualities that match our company values. We also want well-rounded individuals who are multi-dimensional and not so narrowly focused. People who are good communicators and collaborators and can easily adapt to rapidly changing environments. We look for those who inspire leadership that sparks innovation, change, and business transformation.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
SAS is looking for candidates in critical revenue generating areas such as sales, consulting, and research and development. We look for candidates with deep analytical expertise in the areas of statistics, operations research, and econometrics, as well as domain expertise such as health care, financial services, manufacturing, and government.
