How to Get Hired
We asked Xactly Corporation 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?
Resourcefulness and intuition; if they don’t know the answer, they find it. Candidates who strive to find creative solutions for problems and enjoy taking on new challenges. They thrive in environments where they can continuously learn and grow both personally and professionally. We look for candidates who are versatile and proactive when working in a group, but also have the ability to focus individually on tasks. We seek humble candidates who value feedback and who know which skills they need to improve upon to progress in their career. They also work most effectively when they’re around motivated people in dynamic environments. These candidates seek companies with service-focused initiatives and want to know that the work they do matters, and they believe in the solutions we provide to our customers.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Past proven success, strong work ethic and thought-leadership are all attention getters for us. We not only want to understand an applicant’s tangible skill set but also the ‘why’ behind what they love to do! We hire candidates who are resourceful and demonstrate knowledge and passion in the industry. On our initial call with a candidate, those who genuinely inquire about the growth plans of the company, our core values, and want to understand what opportunities we offer for development stand out. You can’t always find that info on a resume! When we ask candidates about their experience, those who proactively provide examples pertaining to teamwork, ownership, and integrity also stand out as good matches in both in skillset and culture.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
As a leader in the market, we are consistently focused on strategic growth, and the only way to do that is by hiring top-talent. This coming year, we remain focused on hiring people who will not only help nurture our existing client base, but also people who can help drive our business forward, specifically by way of innovation, marketing and sales. It is our top priority to develop our growth plan around how we can continually serve our clients, both existing and future.
