How to Get Hired
We asked SRC, 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?
Recruiters see a lot of resumes every day so highlighting key characteristics is very helpful for that “first glance” at a candidate’s profile. We look for relevant work experience, ability to be creative and innovative, and problem-solving skills. In addition, because SRC is a collaborative environment, we look for candidates with strong behavioral competencies, especially in emotional intelligence, to ensure they can work well in a team. As recruiters there is a lot of pressure to find the right match - hiring managers want a candidate who has strong technical skills and will fit into the organizational culture.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Ramp up your resume: make your profile stand out by highlighting your key technical skills, certifications and attributes. Take advantage of social media to network with us and other companies you have your eye on. Joining talent communities for different employers is a great way to stay up to speed on current openings and keep in touch with recruiters.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We continue to have a need for systems, software and test engineers at various levels. We are also seeking individuals with backgrounds in machine-learning and optical engineering. There are also plenty of opportunities for candidates interested in other professional areas we have available.
