How to Get Hired
We asked Southern Ohio Medical Center 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?
We look for candidates that demonstrate phenomenal customer service skills, customer and patient centered, compassionate, friendly, self-motivated and interested in giving exceptional care and a desire to make a difference. Candidates must meet the minimum requirements for the position such as appropriate skills, credentials, and competency but a candidate’s fit with our culture is a must! Out recruiters look for a caring heart, positive attitude, those who embrace change, team-oriented and someone who tries to better themselves and their team.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Our recruiters love it when candidates demonstrate their knowledge of what our organization is all about. SOMC is different than other healthcare facilities in the area and we like those candidates who can articulate the difference and tell us why they will be a good fit here. We want to hear how candidates can make a difference at SOMC. We also want to see accurate, complete applications, a solid work history, and applicants that are very interested in the position they are applying for-not just in getting “a job”!
