For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: LinkedIn Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: I appreciate when candidates let me know they've applied after they've applied via email or LinkedIn. But take it a step further. Let's start a dialogue around what you're looking for as a job seeker and what makes you a great candidate. Frequently, I get random LinkedIn requests from candidates that I've never spoken to after they apply with no message. That is not good follow up. Things That Impress You In A Candidate: There are a few things people can do to be impressive candidates. What impresses me most in a candidate is authenticity, confidence, and the ability to have an open dialogue about what I am looking for as a recruiter and what they are looking for as a job seeker. This shows that a candidate is genuinely interested in my company, they've prepared and done research, and can very likely perform at a high level. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: To be considered for roles at CDW, one has to apply online and in many cases pass a competency-based screening assessment. I recruit for entry level business to business sales roles so while background is important, it's not a deal breaker if a person has no relevant experience. To be a quality candidate, one needs to show strong work ethic, sales drive, and strong communication skills. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: If a candidate fails the screening assessment, they can reapply in 6 months. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: No

Recruiter's Perspective

What's your favorite quote? "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." - Aristotle What do you like to do in your free time? Workout and spend time with my wife and two dogs. In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? I enjoy working at CDW because it is a high-performing company that takes care of its coworkers and we enjoy going to work everyday. In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? CDW has an annual company sponsored fun day at an amusement park but we also have regular team development days that are followed by a fun outing, regular happy hours, as well as community service activities where we can collectively contribute to our local communities. In a sentence, how would you describe the employees at your company? CDW coworkers are people that want to be the absolute best at what they do, all while having a good time along the way.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the interview situation one of our viewers, Remi submitted. He was in an interview and was asked the question: How many cows are there in Canada right now? - What a weird question but this is a technique that some hiring managers are using these days.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Kevin submitted. He is a college student who's working a part time job to make ends meet. The manager/owner of the company has become a micro-manager who watches him work on camera and reads his company emails. A bit over the top wouldn't you say?

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Diane submitted. She has recently worked with a co-worker on a group project. When it came time to present the project at a meeting, Diane let her co-worker present. While it went great, the co-worker proceed to take credit for nearly all of Diane's work. Frustrating to say the least!
