How to Get Hired
We asked Workiva 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?
The main characteristic we look for in an applicant is the ability to demonstrate our values. Our values are: being committed to greatness, action driven, customer centric and being part of a team.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Prospective employees can get our attention in a variety of ways. Our careers homepage is a great place to start. Send us a resume and cover letter. If there isn't a job opening that fits your particular background, prospective employees can always submit a resume to our talent acquisition teams for consideration when new positions open. Workiva has a presence on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Youtube and Google+. Social media has proven invaluable for us in gaining the attention of potential employees. Students can find us participating in career fairs across the country, and of course, you can always call. In addition, we have a robust employee referral program in place.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Over the next year, the most in-demand positions for hiring will include those in our sales, engineering and customer-facing teams. These positions will be filled by developers and engineers, accountants, salespeople and product marketing professionals.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Interested candidates should visit www.workiva.com/careers and send in their resume. Candidates should also follow Workiva on all of our social media sites. Jobs are posted regularly and the social media team is very efficient in responding to questions and requests.
