Fools get respect and flexibility

office.jpeg No it’s not an error in the title, fools really do get respect and flexibility at this multi-media company in Alexandria, Virginia. The Motley Fool’s benefits are the epitome of a great way to attract qualified candidates to their company. We already know of companies like google which provide great perks to employees, but it’s The Motley Fool’s ability to describe these excellent benefits in their job listings that lure candidates to the site. I often get calls from employers who aren’t receiving a good amount of resumes to their listings, and I notice a common issue with these ads: lack of company information. This can range from description of the actual field the company works in (type of company, clients, past awards, links to projects,etc.), to listing benefits and rewards for employees. Aside from Xbox, yoga, indoor soccer, free parking, pizza day, massage therapy, camping trip, and omelet & waffle day, The Motley Fool also offers flexible work schedule, matching 401K, and a NO vacation policy! Of course not all companies can provide such great benefits to staff members, but the point is to highlight any special compensation packages for employees. Even if a job title may seem like a great fit for a job seeker, it’s just as important to find incentive to join a company and become a full-time member.
