The attribute that matters most to us at Booz Allen is you—and this fact underlies everything we do. “We keep people at the center of our work here,” says Terri Gregos, candidate experience manager. “We know that the recruiting journey is more than a process for our candidates—it’s a life event.” It’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 ensure that you have the best experience? As a consecutive winner of the prestigious CandE Awards in 2020 and 2021, we’ve taken the #TheCandEs Pledge from the Talent Board. Here’s what we promise as we build a relationship with you:
We’ll Guide You Through the Process
We believe you should have the 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, university recruiter. “In our first chat, you’ll come away knowing what to expect and how to plan.”
This was the experience of Zachary Williams, an aerospace engineer. “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.”
You’ll also have access to helpful resources, like our hiring journey map and interview tips, so you can bring your best self.
We’ll Engage with You Authentically
Interviewing with our team? Just be yourself. “Our interviews are really just conversations,” says Heather. “It puts people at ease and allows us all to be genuine.” Know we’re doing everything we can to make your experience engaging and memorable.
“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’ll Develop a Relationship with You
Relationships matter to us because you matter. For Nadine Johnson, 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 said. “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. “We want to create a lasting relationship.” Joe agrees. “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.”
