We take our hiring process serious, so much so that we’ve spent time outlining the process every applicant must go through before they are hired at Rocket Media. In general, the process can be broken down into three core segments.

  1. First, does the applicant really want this job? Did they submit everything we’ve asked them for, is their cover letter addressed to us or someone else? Do they have more than a pulse - seriously? You’d be surprised at how many applications we receive from folks who are just looking for a J.O.B. Sorry, we don’t have any of those at Rocket Media.
  2. Next, we need to make sure they can perform the work they are applying for. Do they really have the technical skills we are seeking? This is discovered through conversations, assessments and other discoveries we come up with. The proof is in the pudding at this point.
  3. Finally, we put a lot of time and effort into making sure this is a culture fit. We want to ensure this is the right opportunity for the candidate and for the company. When you’re in a small company like Rocket Media, one bad apple can really tip the cart.

Maybe you’re looking to join our team, or perhaps you’re looking for a solid hiring process to model your program after. Either way, our hope is you find this information helpful. Cheers!
