Enterprise Holdings plans to hire 11,000 new employees over the next year, mostly to fill vacancies created by in-house promotions.
The St. Louis, Mo.-based firm—the parent of rental car companies Enterprise, National and Alamo—is looking for 8,500 college grads to enter itstraining program. It will also hire 1,500 interns. Some of the new hires will take jobs in information technology, accounting and administration.
The promote-from-within policy allows young employees to rise through the ranks quickly and makes the organization attractive to entry-level job-seekers and to people who are changing careers, notes Marie Artim, VP of talent acquisition.
“We put people in a position to succeed immediately,” says Artim, who notes that Enterprise’s CEO and others on the seniorteam began their careers in entry-level positions at the company.
