How to Get Hired
We asked The Thomas Collective 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?
When we meet an individual that is curious about the world, evidenced by anything from world travel, flamenco dance classes or a scuba diving certification; a confident and genuine personality; values that include transparency, respect, diversity of thought, accountability and joy; a varied resume that has given them different life and service skills; demonstration of teamwork; and a passion for learning, we know they would be a great fit for us.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
A cover letter, written beautifully, and devoid of any grammar or spelling errors, is a great start. The inclusion of thoughtful insights on our firm's work or industry makes it even more attention-grabbing. Application of one's background to our work and a clear reason why they see themselves at the Thomas Collective will almost always win them a meeting with us – regardless of whether we are currently hiring. And if you get a meeting, send a thank you. We're old-fashioned, that way.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We will be looking for candidates in the digital space who possess both technical- and creative-problem thinking skills; specifically, with experience and passion for understanding how trends form, and who get excited about solving data puzzles. And we are always looking for people who not only envision how to frame a narrative, but who have the capacity to see new ways to tell a compelling story.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Starting with our website is always a good start. If they're interested in what they learn, we'd suggest writing the cover letter we described above and then sending to our Human Resources Manager; every email is read and kept on file. (what is that email address?)
