How to Get Hired
We asked Tri County Tech 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 looking for a great fit for the organization, Tri County Tech seeks individuals who are passionate, driven, have the heart of an educator, are goal-oriented, have a love for learning and students, and are generous and gracious. Future Tri County Tech educators must fit the culture and have an attitude of graciousness. TCT's Superintendent/CEO stresses to all new employees to be gracious above all things.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
The key characteristics are a big indicator of whether or not prospective employees have the values that align with the TCT culture - the resume and interviews are quite telling of such virtues. Prospective employees should be genuine and share their skills and knowledge from the heart. Honesty and humility are key character traits that exhibit the Tri County Way. If a candidate's character traits fall into place with those of the TCT family, the candidate stands out. Research and knowledge of the organization, use of key CareerTech/educational terminology, and a demonstration of personal core values also garnish attention.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
As Tri County Tech continues to grow and become a significant resource to the community, services that are offered to the community will continue to expand. Adjunct Educator positions that are service-oriented and compliment hospitality and health care will be opportunities for employment. Additionally, as Community Education continues to grow, candidates who have a niche skill or hobby they would like to share in a one hour to 20 hour Community Education course will be highly desirable.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
The easiest and most efficient way for interested candidates to learn about open positions is to visit the Tri County Tech website, www.tricountytech.edu. If there is an open position, it will be listed on the website. There is an electronic employment application on the site as well as a complete list of the benefits offered to employees.
