DESCRIPTION OF IDEAL CANDIDATE
- Gets Stuff Done
You take charge and get stuff done! You know you can ask for feedback and resources, but you don’t make excuses. You have a passion and an internal drive to make things happen! You find people who just like to talk and do nothing a bit irritating.
- Figures Stuff Out
You love a good challenge, and to solve problems. You have the world at your fingertips, and with a keyboard and mouse can figure almost anything out. You get a weird satisfaction in doing puzzles, riddles, and brain teasers.
- Sees The Best In Others
It kills you to see someone not living up to their potential. You can’t help but to encourage and mentor those around you. “You’re such a teacher,” is something you’ve heard a lot.
- Leads Others
You know you can’t do every little thing. Great generals have an army of specialists, and know their job is to empower others to do their best. You’re great at setting objectives and holding people accountable.
Sometimes there’s just not enough time for everything (sigh). Fortunately, you have an instinct for prioritizing. Important things go to the top of the list, and the other stuff… well, it’ll have to wait.
- Loves Numbers
Facts and figures are your jam. You don’t need paragraphs and sentences, because the numbers tell you all you need to know. You’re detail oriented, and you make decisions based on logic; when you buy a car, you have a detailed checklist of specs, makes and models.
- Solves Problems
Reason, logic, and process is your zone of comfort. Your friends are often amazed at how you find solutions so quickly, often before they even realize there's a problem.
If you need something, you ask for it. Sometimes you have to insist, but you’re always able to explain why your way is right. Every now and then you’re wrong, and you’re willing to concede.
- High Standards
The phrase "it's good enough" is not in your vocabulary. You love pushing yourself and those around you to do better. Often, you find ways to work smarter, not harder.
You love cleaning up and creating order out of chaos. You just don’t understand how people can relax in a messy home. (Straighten up people!)
- Loves Responsibility
You love to be in charge, and you want more responsibility. You get satisfaction in knowing you earned it.
- Positive Attitude
You don’t let the little things get you down. You simply roll with the punches! You’re upbeat, positive, cheerful, and excited about the
We're transparent; ask if something isn't clear, feel comfortable to express your difference of opinion. We work hard and we have fun.
