For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Email is the preferred process for following up. LinkedIn is also a good way to contact me as I am on there daily. When following up, please leave your email and phone number. Things That Impress You In A Candidate: A couple of things that impress me about a candidate:
  • If you are an engineer, design work. If you have physically designed products, machines, progressive dies, injection molds, optics, ICs, etc. with small, tight tolerances, that shows the mechanical fortitude to know how things work
  • Communication skills and the basic understanding of how the entire operation contributes to Customer Satisfaction
  • Must have a good sense of Work/Life balance
Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job:
  • Must include design work. If applying for an engineering position, design experience in small, high precision products with high-volume manufacturing will be required
  • A sense of project management
  • Past experiences directly related to the job description
Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered:
  • If there are no experiences related to the Job description
  • Lack of enthusiasm for the work or interview process
  • No general interest in the company
Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes
