Connect Recruits College Grads, Focuses on Training

Connect's CEO discussed the benefits of hiring college graduates and shared tips for young professionals entering the job market. She also highlighted the firm's emphasis on training and professional development.

​​​Demand continues to grow for Connect's innovative consulting and marketing services, and that means continuing expansion for the company. Rachel O’Hara, the company’s CEO, believes college graduates offer unique benefits to growing organizations. She explained, “We have always used strategic hiring to build our company, and we appreciate the value that new grads bring to our team. They are still in learning mode, and they are excited to apply new concepts. That type of enthusiasm is contagious for seasoned associates.”

O’Hara also respects college graduates for their shared desire to make an impact on their chosen industries. “We empower people to thrive here at Connect,” she added. “Those who are fresh out of college find an ideal destination in our office, because they know exactly what they must do in order to advance and get closer to their highest career aspirations.”

The CEO has a few tips for any new graduate looking to make his or her way in a competitive industry. She remarked, “First of all, I don’t think grads should treat every interview as a chance to get a job. They need to look at interviews as great opportunities to learn more about companies and the industry as a whole. The more you discover about market trends, company cultures, and potential roles, the better prepared you will be to make a great impression on your ideal employer.”

"We make sure every new addition to our team has the tools he or she needs to excel and advance. Individuals tailor the training program to meet his or her unique needs, and hands-on education is a constant."

Passion must also be a primary consideration for every college graduate looking for the right fit. “You have to find something that truly inspires you,” the CEO added. “If a potential employer doesn’t seem to align with your own core values, you need to move on to other options.” Connect leaders are always careful to assess cultural fit before making any hiring decisions, and job seekers must use the same approach.

Connect Stresses Training and Ongoing Development

The emphasis on extensive training helps Connect DFW’s associates surpass their professional goals. O’Hara commented, “We make sure every new addition to our team has the tools he or she needs to excel and advance. Individuals tailor the training program to meet his or her unique needs, and hands-on education is a constant.”

Connect’s leadership group also stresses continuing development for their team members. The CEO concluded, “We know that maintaining the status quo won’t work for our company, and the same is true for each of our associates. Everyone must keep growing and improving, no matter how much success our team achieves.”
