One central idea that matters most to us at Booz Allen is you—and this underlies everything we do. “We keep people at the center of our work,” says Terri Gregos, a candidate experience manager. “The recruiting journey is more than a process for our candidates—it’s a life event.”
That’s why we’ve taken special steps to enhance your career journey with us, starting with the moment you begin your search and apply for a job.
How do we make sure you have the best experience? Here’s what we promise as we build a relationship with you:
We’re here to guide you
We believe you should have time to plan for each step of the hiring process and the space to connect organically with your interviewers before your big day. “Communication and transparency are key for us,” says Heather Holdaway, a Booz Allen recruiter. “In our first chat, you’ll come away knowing what to expect and how to plan.”
Zachary Williams is an aerospace engineer who noticed the Booz Allen difference from the start. “Shortly after my first call with a recruiter, I had documents about the recruiting process, what to expect, who I would talk to, the order of events, as well as a benefits document,” he says. “I’ve never felt so prepared.”
We embrace diversity
Interviewing with our team? Bring your point of view. “Our interviews are really just conversations,” says Heather. “It puts people at ease and allows us all to be genuine.”
Our hiring managers introduce you to their teams and projects, offering different perspectives, and we encourage our candidates to do the same.
“We’ve developed a unique way to interview our tech candidates: we talk about gaming,” says Joe Riolo, aerospace program manager of developed solutions. “It’s a great way for us to connect about something fun and see how you and your skills would fit on our highly technical team.”
We value relationships
Relationships matter to us because you matter. For Nadine Johnson, a risk reporting and dashboard specialist, it was a connection with her recruiter that made all the difference.
“I applied for one position, but a recruiter came back and suggested one that was an even better fit,” she says. “Things moved quickly from there.”
The more we’re able to connect during your hiring journey, the better we’re able to keep in touch with you—both now and moving forward.
“We care about you and we want to get to know you,” says Heather.
For Joe, it’s all about building lasting relationships.
“We’re born of a consultancy over a century ago and it’s still in our blood today. People have always mattered to us. It’s who we are.”
