Tips from a BECU Recruiter

  • Tailor your résumé to the position you're seeking. The more you demonstrate how you made, saved or achieved something, the more compelling it is to a recruiter or hiring manager
  • Check your spam/junk folders for BECU or recruitment vendor emails
  • Wait 2 – 3 weeks for a response. Check the Careers Portal to see if the status of your application has been updated before reaching out to BECU
  • Ensure voicemail is set up, not full and accepting new voicemails on your phone
  • Use an email address that is appropriate for work
