A recent article in Business Insider magazine talked about why some new graduates turn down big entry-level salaries. If not a big paycheck, what do these young people want?
A group of recent Stanford grads named several priorities at the top of their job-search lists:
- They want to make an impact.
- They want to learn and grow.
- They want to work with interesting people.
- They want to be allowed to take initiative.
- They want to work on interesting problems.
These criteria describe the employment opportunities at Northshore Utility District. We provide vital services to the local communities. Our work directly impact the quality of life of our friends and neighbors.
The District’s compensation package is very competitive. As employers, we are in the rarified group that still provide a retirement pension, fully-paid medical/dental/vision insurance coverage for the whole family and many other benefits. But to keep water and sewer rates low and still pay our employees well, we expect a superior level of work performance from them. Only about half of our new-hires pass the probationary period.
If you know job seekers who are looking to make a difference, please tell them to check out our job openings at www.nud.net.
The District is very selective, but we are a good home for those who are willing to work hard, learn, grow, and excel.
