Coffee Shop HR’s First Company Profile: Purdy’s Chocolates

Danielle De MarchiWith Carolyn joining our blog team and Easter just around the corner, I thought what better company to feature than Purdy’s Chocolates.

I have researched hundreds of companies in the past, but Purdy’s is the most interesting I’ve ever come across. They have a rich history, amazing culture, endless amounts of community involvement plus they get to eat chocolate every day! (I’m picturing myself on the Sweet Georgia Brown conveyor belt doing the Lucille Ball in that chocolate factory episode of I Love Lucy).

Welcome Danielle De Marchi, Business Profile Writer

When prospective employees are being interviewed for the positions they seek, their goal in that moment should be to prove that he/she is the right fit for that specific organization. Otherwise, why should that person be hired?

When people are looking for jobs, they often feel vulnerable and exposed; you’re announcing to the world that you’re looking for a dramatic change, after all!  But the fact of the matter is, when you’re sitting across from a hiring manager, all that matters is your ability to convince that person to choose you above all others.

One of the best things you can do for your career at any stage is to keep learning about different businesses. Where do they operate, what is their purpose and outlook, and ultimately what kind of employment opportunities exist?

Coffee Shop HR is proud to welcome Danielle De Marchi, who will be writing monthly business profiles starting in March 2013.  She comes to us from inSite Housing Hospitality and Health in Vancouver.

The purpose for posting monthly business profiles is to provide you with a new resource for comparing organizations and exposing you to smaller, and often more obscure companies.  By exploring different organizations, you gain a greater understanding of the market, learn from their strategies, and become better equipped to assess whether you are the right fit for the company.
