When employees talk about why they love working at the AAD, you’ll hear “my co-workers are amazing,” “benefits are fabulous” and “the flexibility helps me balance it all” again and again. We believe hiring the right candidate involves more than just finding someone with a hard-skill set. As a membership association, it’s important to us that our team is comprised of adaptable, innovative, and collaborative professionals who embody our core values. In short, we look for employees who are:
Collaborative: You can establish and maintain effective work relationships, readily share information, resources, and credit when due, and offer assistance and support to stakeholders. You have a “we” vs. “me” mentality, but you aren’t afraid to share your own opinions respectfully.
Strong communicator: You’re able to express ideas clearly, keep stakeholders informed, and actively listen and respond positively.
Dependable: Follow through is second nature to you, and you have a keen ability to anticipate competing demands and correct courses to accomplish and meet deadlines.
Strong decision-making capabilities: While considering both short- and long-term implications of decisions, you make quality decisions in a timely manner, even under uncertain conditions.
Professionalism: You’re able to do what you say, follow-through on commitments, be transparent and speak up for what you believe is right. Accountability, integrity and diplomacy are skills that you use all the time when working in a respectful and purposeful manner to accomplish effective outcomes.
Innovative: You display energy and enthusiasm, generate suggestions for improving work, processes, and procedures, and meet challenges with openness and resourcefulness.
