Who We Hire
At OHM Advisors, we welcome passionate creators who see innovation as a way to make the world—our community—better.
We are a collaborative, values-driven culture working every day to move communities forward. So we hire people who want to move forward, too. People who come to work to innovate, share and receive diverse expertise to enrich a client’s project and their own knowledge while making a big impact on communities.
We seek industry leaders driven to share their knowledge, experience and thought leadership to solve our clients’ challenges and develop our team. You’ll work with other experts to collaborate on cutting-edge work and groundbreaking industry issues, and enjoy opportunities to lead a team, pursue corporate ownership, develop a niche expertise and more.
We hire young professionals wired to think big and looking for a culture that empowers them to have a collaborative voice as they grow their career. You’ll enjoy opportunities to do meaningful and diverse project work that makes a lasting impact on the communities we serve, learn from and be supported by seasoned professionals, and pursue the passion that defines you.
We offer high school and college students paid summer and part-time internship opportunities to help you gain valuable, hands-on experience that enriches your education. You’ll be exposed to the firm’s various service areas, work with mentoring professionals and learn from substantive design or field work—all important first steps toward your post-graduation career in the industry.
We believe that diverse ideas, backgrounds and experiences yield the strongest results. Our growing team of 500+ diverse individuals collaborates daily, using our combined gifts and talents to continually advance the communities we serve.
When I hire, I look for people with passion because with that, you can accomplish anything. You also need to have people who relate well to your mission, to be aligned in what you want to accomplish. When you get the right people and allow them the freedom to work in the way they work best, they’re engaged and they accomplish great things.
We need technical experts—but also people who know how to deal with people and clients. It’s attitude—really, that’s the bottom line. I look for personality and character long before talking about technical capabilities.
When I'm looking for new team members, I focus on unique talents and passions because it’s true what they say: skills can be taught but talent is something you're born with. I believe we need a diverse talent base to be successful, and having the right mix is what makes OHM Advisors such a great firm.
We’re striving to continue our strong growth and seek experienced talents at all levels who think differently and are passionate about their work contributing to the greater good. We also know that a diverse workforce is essential to best serving our clients, and are dedicated to our ongoing initiatives to attract and retain diverse talent.
