Recruiter Spotlight: Carly Beller

Carly Beller Carly Beller - Recruiter

Carly began her ONEOK career as a human resources generalist in 2013 and has been assisting with university recruiting since May 2014.

What types of positions do you recruit for and where?
I recruit interns primarily for the operations side of our business. Our operations interns can be based out of any of our field locations or our Tulsa headquarters, depending on need.

Why do you think people should join the ONEOK team?
ONEOK is a fantastic company to build your career with, and our internships are a great way to get a taste of what makes ONEOK special. Interns get to attend lunch-and-learn events hosted by various business segments to get a feel for what we do and how ONEOK operates. They also receive hands-on, real-world projects to complete, many of which become long-term solutions for our employees.

What do you like about working at ONEOK?
You will hear a lot about the “ONEOK culture,” and that’s because it’s truly a great place to work. Our leaders value the thoughts and ideas of every employee and see the importance of prioritizing employee development.

What advice would you offer to job seekers?
Students interested in an internship with ONEOK should follow us on Facebook, LinkedIn and @ONEOKCareers on Twitter. Check out our website to find out when we’ll be on campus, and come see us at a career fair or other campus events! We love to get face time with students and are always open to hearing about opportunities for us to be more involved on campus.

When you’re reviewing applications or interviewing, what makes a candidate stand out for you?
We look for students who have a strong academic record, as well as a good balance of prior work and extracurricular experience. In interviews, candidates who stand out are able to highlight their experience in ways that show the value they added in previous jobs or student organizations they’re involved in. We recommend students prepare for interviews by researching the behavioral-based interview style and taking advantage of mock interview resources offered by campus career services.

What is the most common misstep you see candidates make?
A common mistake I see students make is not taking advantage of the resources their campus offers to prepare them for an internship. Career service centers help students build resumes, practice interviewing and hone their networking skills.

Anything else you would like to add?
Getting involved in a campus organization or club is a great way to build relationships with other students and faculty, to gain experience working as part of a team and, potentially, to step into a leadership role. These opportunities are available to students in any major.
