How to Get Hired
We asked Talent Plus, 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?
Positivity and exactness are tickets to admission in our culture. We accept people based upon who they are and their framework of needs, not the framework of ourselves, so we look for evidence of an individualized and caring. We operate on relationships. People who thrive at Talent Plus are intentional about building positive relationships. Individuals don't have to be extroverted, but must have strength in connecting to others to build healthy teams. Our business is complex and sophisticated; curious individuals with an insatiable desire to learn are a great fit. We don’t have a lot of rules/regulations, so we look for ambiguity tolerance and self-direction. We look for demonstrated focus (fundamentally about biological energy and its direction). We look for assertiveness — associates who can express their needs/goals. We select for integrity. Associates at Talent Plus know fellow associates act upon the best interests of our clients and one another.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
We are always recruiting. When a candidate goes beyond "applying," it gets our attention. An example of this is a unique, interesting cover letter: A candidate compared great companies and Talent Plus to Greek Yogurt "because it's about the culture." It set them apart through creative courage. An individualized approach sets people apart. When a candidate takes the time to learn our recruiter's name and does their homework on who we are and expresses it in some fashion during the process, it gets our attention. We notice when a candidate has good questions. Applicants are making important life decisions and those who are a best fit bring good questions. When talented people have the opportunity to express their talents, we take notice, e.g. when someone loves their job and performs it with excellence, whether a server at a restaurant, acting as a volunteer or performing their work role with excellence.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
As an outcome of last year's strategic planning, we set a goal to bring our technology development team members in-house. We continue to insource in alignment with that need, in addition to adding several programmers and quality assurance team members to support this strategy.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Visit the Careers page on Talent Plus’ website and complete an application. Candidates will have an opportunity to upload their resume to start the process. As well, they should become as familiar with Talent Plus, our culture and the services and solutions we offer as possible so that when they arrive for an in-person interview, they will have questions to ask of those with whom they visit. If you don't want to apply online, call our recruiter directly at 800-827-7489 and ask for Kyle Bruss or Kesha Harris.
