How to Get Hired
We asked Softchoice 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 Softchoice, we are all about diversity! A great way to tell if someone will flourish in our culture is by some of their key characteristics. When we are interviewing prospective employees, regardless of the role they are applying for, we are looking for passion. People need to be passionate about what they do - whether it is a passion for sales, technology, operations, marketing or HR. This is something that all employees at Softchoice have in common and a large part of our culture. Another way to tell if someone will be a great fit is if they embody our core values. We find that people do their best when they are driven by personal and professional development, when they take care of their peers and colleagues, when they are passionate about their customers, and when they own the end result. People who exemplify these values will no doubt be a great fit for Softchoice.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
To get our attention and to stand out, prospective employees should do their research! When we are interviewing candidates, there is nothing that makes a candidate stand out more than someone who is well prepared for the interview and has done their research on Softchoice and can provide key insights to our industry. When people understand what we do and how they can provide value to Softchoice it truly makes them stand out from the rest. Having done this also enables prospective employees to truly understand if Softchoice is the employer for them. What are some challenges and opportunities within the industry? What is our culture like? Knowing the answers to these types of questions will prove to us that you have done your homework, understand what a day in the life of a Softchoicer truly is, and that we should hire you!
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
As a company that is focused on supporting the business outcomes of our customers through technology enablement, having strong, technically skilled people in services roles is paramount. Our Engineers, Architects and other technical resources are key to our success and we are proud to provide these types of exciting opportunities. In the next year, we are really looking for technical talent with skills and experience in cloud, hybrid IT, and emerging technologies. We will always be dedicated to hiring great sales professionals for a variety of different roles in the following divisions: our Territory Sales Division, Telesales Division and our Outside Sales Division. Some of the roles that we focused on hiring for include our Territory Sales Representatives, Inside Sales Account Managers and our Outside Sales Representatives.
