How to Get Hired
We asked Shawmut Design and Construction 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?
Beyond the technical skills needed for a specific role, we want a person who is smart, passionate, engaged, and curious. The most successful people at Shawmut are ones who possess not just a “can-do” attitude but also a “what-can-I-do?” attitude. Because Shawmut is an ESOP (employee owned) company, we especially value a candidate who brings an “owner’s” mentality to every job.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
A clear, concise resume with relative details pertaining to the job they are applying for is a must. For our construction operations candidates, we like to see project information that aligns with what we do. If they have not built projects similar to ours, we want to know what value they can bring to company. We also want to see a well-rounded candidate. Someone with outside interests and community service
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We are fortunate to be hiring across all departments but are especially focused on: Project Managers, Superintendents, Estimators, Project Accountants, Staff Accountants, Sr. Finance Managers and Helpdesk Technicians.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
