Recruiters are looking for qualified job applicants as the Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant (PCAPP) gets closer to starting operations to destroy the chemical weapons stockpile stored at the U.S. Army Pueblo Chemical Depot, Colorado.
“We want employees who are motivated and enthusiastic about the work we do,” said Jennifer Edmonston, human resources manager, PCAPP. “I like to see people who are not afraid to ask questions. Exercising technical inquisitiveness is key.”
Edmonston recommends researching the company you are interviewing with so thoughtful questions can be asked.
“Nothing is more disappointing than interviewing someone who didn’t take the time to research the project. It conveys a lack of interest in the job,” she said.
Human resources generalist Teresa Chambers advises the applicant’s resume match the basic and minimum qualifications in the job description.
“If you have computer literacy, make sure you include it in your resume because email and computer-based training is essential for this project,” Chambers said.
Edmonston said hiring managers and recruiters notice spelling and grammatical errors.
“One piece of advice I would like to convey to anyone looking for employment is to review their resume carefully,” she said. “Review it, review it again. Have a friend look at it, and then review it one more time.”
Edmonston said the overarching qualities for which recruiters look for are integrity, respect and ability to collaborate.
