How to Get Hired
We asked Study.com 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 are team players, internally motivated, hungry to learn, talented and hard working. In terms of character traits, we look for candidates who are flexible, approachable, honest, thoughtful, sentimental, positive, friendly and have a sense of integrity. We simply want great people with good values and morals.
Aside from these traits, we also look for people who’ve put some work into the hiring process. We consider whether candidates have done any research about the company, how much they’ve prepared for each stage of the interview process and the level of effort they put into any take-home assignments.
Finally, we look for candidates that demonstrate some excitement about the role. They want to work here for reasons that show they share similar values to our employees (hard work, desire to make an impact, etc.) and they have a passion for education.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Your resume and cover letter work as the most important first filter. Make sure your resume is concise, formatted correctly, free of spelling/grammar errors and clearly showcases relevant experience. You should also take the extra step on your cover letter to provide clarity on your resume and explain why Study.com specifically is somewhere you want to work. If you advance to the interview process, be sure to have a few questions prepared to show you want to make sure Study.com is a fit. And remember to be conversational. Having the right experience and skillset is only one part of the equation – we also need to simply enjoy chatting with you! Finally, make sure you’re responsive. In most cases, we get back to our candidates with an update within 48 business hours so we love to get that same level of courtesy from you too. And send a thank you note!
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We’ll be particularly focused on roles in software engineering, sales and marketing.
