How to Get Hired
We asked TruQua Enterprises 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?
Our core values are "Smart, Driven and Nice." It is crucial for us to have the smartest people because we are dealing with complicated technology and business processes. However, we also firmly believe that it is not just what you do, but how you do it that matters. Therefore, we also want individuals that are self-starters who take initiative. Most importantly, because we seek out such high performers, we want people who can "check their ego at the door." Our employees support each other because we all believe that one person's success is everyone's success. In return, we support our employees by giving them high levels of autonomy and even supporting their personal goals. As a result, we have built a strong culture of high trust, connection, ownership, belonging and meaning that creates genuine drive and motivation.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
We vet all our candidates thoroughly regardless of experience level because we believe anyone who is smart, driven and nice can succeed at TruQua. So there's nothing really "special" that a candidate has to do to get our attention. Candidates should be themselves and be be open about what they're looking for as we value people who are genuine, humble and honest.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We are constantly looking for candidates that embody our cultural values. If we find such a person, we often carve out a place in the organization for them vs just trying to fill specific roles. We believe people who are smart, driven and nice can quickly grow into any number of roles. Therefore, while we start by seeking specific skills, we end up selecting individuals we feel have the right attitudes. We have a low tolerance for "smart jerks" because while they may be great individual contributors, they are often a drag on a team.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
They can go to our website, www.TruQua.com to learn more about our company and decide if we have the type of culture they can thrive in. There, we have all our open roles posted. They should also reach out to our head of recruiting, Stephanie Hettrich (firstname.lastname@example.org). We are always looking for smart, driven and nice people and believe attitude trumps experience. For the right candidate, we can create a role.
