Tips For Interviewing at a Tech Company

With the economy picking up, many people are either finding themselves back in the job market or looking for better alternatives to their current employment. As a result, a lot of old resumes and rusty interviewing skills are being dusted off and prepared for a new round of applications and opportunities.

Technical jobs are on the rise and working at a tech company is an attractive career move for many. Since there are tremendous opportunities to obtain higher pay, great working conditions and comprehensive benefits, the tech industry has an influx of job seekers wanting to get their foot in the door.

If you’re stepping into the candidate pool and hoping to land a job at your favorite tech company, here are four tips for interviewing at a tech company.

Know About Their Business

When you interview for a company, you should spend time researching the company and learning everything you can about them before your appointment. For example, know who their biggest competitors are, check to see if they’ve been highlighted in the news for anything recently and know if they’ve made any changes in their C-suite lately.

You don’t have to know everything, but showing that you’ve taken the time to research a company communicates your interest and insures that you don’t waste the interviewers time.

Ask Questions

The more you want to know about the job you seek, the more likely your prospective employer will react positively. Demonstrating interest in future employment is the fastest way to get the attention of a hiring manager, even if there are numerous competing candidates. It’s no longer enough to just appear motivated. You have to actually be motivated in order to succeed.

Reduce the Clutter

If possible, condense your resume to one page. Give priority to your education, skills and experience. Put less emphasis on abstract things like objectives, extracurricular activities and expectations. By and large, most resumes are catalogued by machines long before they ever get to a person, so you want to make sure your document registers all the relevant keywords for the position you seek.

Keep it simple and short, and always remember resumes are like the back cover copy on a novel. Their only purpose is to get you to open the cover.

Eye Contact

Don’t fidget and don’t glance around the room when you are in a job interview. You should maintain eye contact as much as possible, because that will communicate to the interviewer you are engaged and interested.

It will also communicate the fact that you are actually listening to what they are saying. If you appear distracted, your counterparty is likely to lose interest. Pay attention and maintain eye contact at all times.

Tech companies can provide great careers for individuals looking to launch a meaningful career in a fast-paced industry.

Stacey Richards: My Schwab Story

Written by Hannah Erwin, summer 2018 Intern

“I am personally challenged here at Schwab, so I’m growing as an individual, not just as an employee.”

We had the opportunity to connect with Stacey to learn more about her story and what makes her proud to be a Schwabbie.

Q: Tell us about your journey to working at Schwab.

SR: I am new to finance. I was ready to make a career change and at the time I was considering either a shift to a career in education or going back to school. I needed an opportunity to learn something new, but I decided it was best to remain in the workforce. Being new to finance, I saw Schwab as a perfect fit for my desire to learn. Originally I was a little apprehensive about making a career change into finance because of the stereotypes, but after coming to Schwab and seeing what the culture is like I felt reassured.

Q: Why Schwab?

SR: My husband works for Schwab and had been talking about the industry for a while. Every time we would talk about his job, he was so enthusiastic and had such a positive story to tell at the end of each day. I was unsure if it was going to wear off, but it hasn’t. It has been over a year and a half and he still loves it. Because I am a learner, it was important to me to be in a culture where I would have opportunities for growth. After talking with my husband and seeing how Schwab’s corporate values match my own personal values, I knew what I had heard about Schwab’s culture was true.

Q: What has made you successful at Schwab?

SR: The people around me have enabled me to be successful. Everyone I have encountered has been a wealth of knowledge. My current manager and team mates have all been so helpful in a way that I’ve been able to flourish because of their support.

Q: What do you enjoy most about Schwab?

SR: Having a balance between work and life is extremely important to me. With 5 kids, flexibility is a necessity. Schwab offers so many different shifts and makes it easy to request schedule changes.

I also really enjoy the employee resource groups. It opens up the opportunity to meet people with similar interests and be involved outside of our daily work routines.

Recently, I participated in my first Schwab Volunteer Day. We created care packages for soldiers and individually wrote them notes to show our appreciation. I was honored to be a part of such an important activity.

Q: What makes you want to stay at Schwab?

SR: What makes me want to stay at Schwab is the culture, positivity, and values. There is so much growth potential for upward mobility. I am personally challenged here at Schwab, so I’m growing as an individual, not just as an employee.

That’s Stacey’s Schwab Story. Start yours!

Sales and Marketing Interview Tips

Interviews for sales and marketing positions are challenging. You must prove your understanding of the field and market yourself to your prospective employer. If you’ve got one coming up, here are some sales and marketing interview tips to help you through the process.

Do Your Research

You should know as much about how the company markets itself, and its sales process, as possible when you walk into the room. There’s a good chance they’ll ask you questions about it.

Do Brand Yourself

Developing a personal brand online shows that you can market and sell yourself as much as any product or service. It also gives you practical experience you can talk about during the interview.

Do Bring Your Resume and References

Always bring at least one copy of your resume and references to the interview. Yes, the interviewer should already have them, but sometimes they won’t. Make sure the references can attest that you play well with others and are comfortable with working in teams.

Dress the Part

Try to gear your outfit to the company’s in-house standards if you can get a sense of it ahead of time. If not, default to business standard. It’s better to be a little overdressed than underdressed!

Offer an Idea

You should walk into the interview with an idea for improving the company’s sales or marketing processes. It helps prove that you understand the company’s brand and spent time preparing for your interview.

Do Play the Numbers

If you can show that a marketing or sales effort you led had a measurable impact on the bottom line for a business, do it. Words are nice, but quantitave results are golden.

Do Send a Thank You

Follow through is at the core of marketing and sales. A thank you note proves that you understand the importance of this concept, and shows gratitude to your interviewer for taking the time to talk with you..

Think Before You Answer

Answering too fast could make it look like you aren’t really considering the questions. It can also make you skip important details. Take a moment to think about the question, make sure you understand what the interviewer is asking, and then answer clearly and concisely.

Don’t Ask Off-Topic Questions

You should go into an interview with at least one prepared question. This shows interest in the company and the interviewer, which is important. Even more, make sure the questions you ask follow the line of conversation. If it’s off-topic, you waste an opportunity to glean important information and you wasting people’s time.

Don’t Overplay the Cool

Interviews are sales pitches. Acting like you’re as calm as a Zen master can come off as a lack of interest. You must sell them on the idea that you’re excited – in a grown-up way – about getting the job.

Don’t Lie

This cannot be overstated. Do not lie. Everyone massages their resume to show themselves in the best light, but getting caught in a lie will instantly torpedo any chance of landing the job you’re interviewing for.

If your interview doesn’t land you the job, make a point to ask for feedback. It’s easy to assume you screwed up the interview, but it’s just as likely you lost to a candidate with more experience. If you did make mistakes, knowing about them prepares you to do better in the next interview.

Freedom Financial Network Announces $306.8 Million Impact on 2018 Arizona Economy

This article was originally posted on PRNewswire.

TEMPE, Ariz.May 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Freedom Financial Network (FFN) will contribute approximately $306.8 million to the Arizona economy in 2018, according to an independent economic impact study conducted by the Seidman Institute, the consultancy arm of W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. The figure represents a 22.1 percent increase over the company’s 2017 impact.

“The ASU findings establish quantitatively what we’ve all known intuitively for quite some time,” says Andrew Housser, co-CEO and co-founder of FFN. “Freedom Financial Network is a major contributor to Arizona’s economy, and will continue to be in the years to come. We have been proud to be part of the fabric of the Tempe community for more than a decade, and look forward to continuing to contribute to the growth of TempeMaricopa County and the State of Arizona.”

The company presented the results of the study this morning, at the grand opening of FFN’s new, 150,000-square-foot building at 2114 E. Rio Salado Parkway in Tempe (renamed today “Freedom Way”), the first of two buildings planned at the site. The audience included representatives from local and state government and economic development organizations.

The Seidman Institute researchers who conducted the study, “The Economic Impact of Freedom in Maricopa County and the State of Arizona,” examined estimated impacts, including both the direct effects of FFN’s operations and capital expenditure in each geography, and the multiplier effects that arise when income is recycled within the local economy.

“Our findings indicate that Freedom Financial Network not only generates a significant amount of direct economic impact in Arizona,” says Tim James, Ph.D., director of research and consulting at ASU’s Seidman Research Institute. “Freedom’s expanding Tempe operations give rise to more than one additional job elsewhere in the state for every associate that they directly employ.”

Results of the study include 2018 projections of state-wide impact including:

  • 4,130 direct, indirect and induced jobs; 1.08 indirect and induced jobs for every one person FFN employs in Tempe
  • $140.1 million total wages and salaries (including benefits) of FFN’s Tempe employees
  • $74.2 million total FFN purchases from Arizona-based vendors
  • $242.2 million labor income in total statewide impact
  • $306.8 million in total state GDP impact

Tempe has proven to be an exceptional base for FFN’s rapid growth,” says Housser. The company opened its Tempe office in April 2006 with two employees. Today, nearly 2,000 employees work at FFN in Tempe. “With this new campus, we’re proud to provide our current, and future, employees a home that reflects the investment we are making in their futures – and a home base for the outstanding work they do on behalf of our clients.”

Dignity Health Survey Reveals Adults See Children as Leaders in Kindness

This story was originally featured on www.dignityhealth.org.

National Survey Inspires the Filming of Young Students Creating Kind Deeds for Others

SAN FRANCISCO – Jan. 24, 2018 – Dignity Health, one of the largest health systems in the nation, polled Americans on the power kindness has in fostering connections and discovered they often look to children for kindness inspiration. The survey was conducted in conjunction with Dignity Health’s participation in the Great Kindness Challenge, Jan. 22-26, to inspire a culture of kindness when people need it most.

The survey of 1,001 American adults found that 74 percent of people feel that adults could learn a lot about kindness by watching how children interact with the world. It also revealed that half of respondents admit they were actively more kind to others when they were a child.

Showing kindness to ourselves and to others is important for one’s physical and mental health. It’s also important for relationships, helping to create stronger human connections. A majority (83 percent) of people admit they could have been more kind even to their significant other in the past month.

“These results reveal an interesting truth about our world and suggest that as we age, we may lose some of the inherent kindness we have as children,” said Pamela Davis, M.D., residency director for the Dignity Health Family Medicine Residency at Northridge Hospital. “We can learn a lot from kids on how to treat others with the same compassion and consideration we would want for ourselves. By their example, we can see how kindness creates powerful connections with those around us.”

Dignity Health and its more than 63,000 employees are participating alongside 20 million students across the world in the Great Kindness Challenge, which challenges individuals to complete a checklist of 50 acts of kindness in one week.

Dignity Health illustrated this movement and specifically the “create your own kind deed” item on the checklist by following fifth grade students at James Madison Elementary as they performed their own surprise acts of kindness for friends and family members, captured in a video series shared at hellohumankindness.org/greatkindnesschallenge.

The Great Kindness Challenge, created by non-profit Kids for Peace, aims to create a culture of kindness in elementary, middle, and high school students, worldwide. Join the Great Kindness Challenge by downloading the family check list at TheGreatKindnessChallenge.com/FamilyChecklist. Follow Dignity Health’s participation at facebook.com/DignityHealth, and for more information and to view the videos, visit hellohumankindness.org/greatkindnesschallenge.

UCSF to Use Dignity Health Digital Platform to Increase Health Access

This story was originally featured on www.dignityhealth.org.

San Francisco, Calif. – July 17, 2018 – Dignity Health and UCSF Health are collaborating to develop a state-of-the-art digital engagement platform that will provide information and access to patients when and where they need it as they navigate primary and preventive care, as well as more acute or specialty care.

The platform, which ultimately aims to serve as a model for health systems nationwide, will be hosted by Dignity Health. The two health care organizations will leverage technological expertise and cloud-based infrastructure that Dignity Health has developed for its 40 hospitals. As one of the nation’s top-ranked academic medical centers, UCSF Health will contribute its extensive knowledge of the patient experience in specialty care.

The two health care organizations will develop a trusted path of digital access across the patient journey using the proprietary cloud-based platform of Dignity Health, one of the nation’s largest health systems.

“Our collaboration with Dignity Health will empower patients and their families with digital health care and connectivity, while simplifying the provider experience,” said Shelby Decosta, senior vice president and chief strategy officer for UCSF Health. “Together, with Dignity Health, we are opening new pathways for health care organizations to create a superior experience for their own patients and ultimately, for patients nationwide.”

In the first phase of the digital collaboration, UCSF is redesigning the user experience of its web and mobile properties and leveraging Dignity Health’s technical expertise to re-envision how the medical center delivers information to patients. The personalized, mobile-responsive infrastructure is supported by rich analytics and machine learning. In later phases, UCSF’s Center for Digital Health Innovation and Dignity Health will map out the multiple pathways that patients follow in moving from primary and secondary care to more acute care services, to create a robust digital system that connects patients and providers, while providing patients with the information they need throughout the process.

“Dignity Health is pushing the boundaries of digital transformation and digital therapeutics across the continuum of care,” said Dr. Shez Partovi, chief digital officer of Dignity Health. “We are committed to care for all, and are incorporating innovative digital experiences that are simple and enable patients to make better informed decisions about their health. This collaboration between UCSF and Dignity Health will set a new national standard for how patients should be supported through their digital health care journeys with intensely positive and personal experiences.”

The two organizations collaborated recently to combine the best of academic medicine and community-based care to increase access to high-quality, affordable care, and to improve the overall health care experience for patients in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Dignity Health has developed nearly a dozen apps that create a highly personalized digital experience for patients across several care journeys, including maternal care, such as the “My Baby” pregnancy app, which provides end-to-end care for expecting mothers.
