For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Email Things That Impress You In A Candidate: Integrity, vision, ability to gel in quickly. Additionally, I love to see candidates who have spent time researching the opportunity and company offering versus blindly hitting apply based on a description. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: Phone number, email id, resume, best time to contact. At a high level they have to include a resume that reflects experience aligned to the position for which they applied. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: I love to see people who aren’t happy with the status quo and want to join and disrupt the norm and ask questions. I don't like job hopping, attitude. Even if someone has ‘Rockstar’ hard skills in their domain a demonstrated lack of emotional intelligence is a deal breaker. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes
