How to Get Hired
We asked U.S. Bancorp 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?
At U.S. Bank, we draw strength from the diversity of our employees. We value their unique backgrounds, skills and insights and believe that anyone can find success with our company. We know candidates will succeed when they take initiative and lead with uncompromising integrity. We look for candidates who find meaningful ways to serve our customers and conduct business. Above all, candidates should enjoy challenging work and approach it with an optimistic, innovative and collaborative attitude.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Candidates should advocate for themselves by providing a professional, current resume that highlights the successes they have achieved in previous roles and the skills they can bring to U.S. Bank. During the interview process, candidates should be engaged and authentic. They should show an understanding of the role they applied for as well as general knowledge about our overall company and what we do.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
As the fifth largest commercial bank in the United States, we have a wide range of employment opportunities across the country. In the coming year we are particularly focused on hiring employees into our retail branches, call centers, operations and IT centers. It’s especially important for us to hire people who understand the customers in the communities where they live and work. We also have an increased need for skilled employees in the areas of risk and compliance.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
The best first stop for anyone interested in joining U.S. Bank is to visit our career site at www.usbank.com/careers. On that site, candidates can search through our rich mix of challenging and exciting job opportunities, learn more about our corporate culture and explore what it means to be part of the U.S. Bank team. We also keep active on LinkedIn, Twitter and other social media channels where we know candidates are looking for jobs. In addition, student candidates can also find us on campus at career fairs throughout Minnesota; we’re expanding our campus relations program to better reach that next generation of employees.
