How to Get Hired
We asked XPLANE 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?
Curiosity. Great XPLANErs are passionate about understanding things completely. They ask great questions, listen well, and pay attention to the details.
Great Collaborators. Our team loves to collaborate in safe, egoless environments. We believe the best solutions come from teams, with diverse talents and backgrounds, working together.
Visual thinkers. XPLANErs love to draw their ideas. They are the people that immediately jump to the whiteboard during a meeting to visual their ideas.
Oh, and a good sense of humor helps :)
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Many of our employees came to know us through our Visual Thinking School, while others have knocked our socks off with visual resumes and stunning portfolios of relevant work. Once we've started talking, it's critical that they've done their research and understand our company; what we do and how we work. Often times people join us as freelancers. This affords potential hires the opportunity to showcase their skills on actual client work.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We are always looking for talented resources in design, graphical capture, illustration, animation, and facilitation of discovery workshops.
