What are you looking for?
We look for candidates who can thrive in a high-performing, team environment.... We're also looking for people who demonstrate our firm's core values and have high integrity. From a client service perspective, we want people who have good technical skills, problem-solving abilities, and commercial focus.
Any secrets to impressing your recruiter?
Our firm has a well-defined and oft-communicated set of seven core values that we expect all of our employees -- and prospective candidates -- to demonstrate, which includes traits such as leading by example, respecting the individual, being open and honest in communication, and above all, acting with integrity. --Interview with Raymond Zardetto, senior director, communications
