Fisher Investments Announces New Recruiting Initiatives
Ken Fisher’s firm explores new talent acquisition efforts via social media
The firm is seeking talented individuals for both associate and mid-level positions. For those just beginning or early into their careers, the associate role can be an ideal starting place. Typically located in Sales Operations or Client Services, these positions offer immediate hands-on experience, broad exposure to the firm’s business, and extensive initial and ongoing training. For candidates with a history of success in financial services, more experienced roles are available with the opportunity to manage relationships with the firm’s high net worth clients. In either type of role, continuous on-the-job mentoring and education provide the chance to excel from day one.
Fisher Investments will begin using social media to aid in recruiting. “We’re excited to broaden our social media efforts to help with talent acquisition. We hope this new effort, in combination with our traditional channels, reaches more prospective candidates,”
The firm began using social media in early 2011 as a means of expanding the reach of its educational materials. Supported by its in-house research staff, the firm produces a number of educational resources for both clients and the general public, including research reports, investment guides, and more. It distributes this content through a variety of websites and publications, along with an array of social media channels including Google+, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
Interested applicants can apply through Fisher Investments Facebook page or at its careers website, http://www.fishercareers.com.
