We’re looking for individuals with a purpose and passion for life and who are looking for meaningful work that will make a real difference. Cogir’s culture is one that embraces and celebrates the human spirit at every age. Remember, hiring is a two-way conversation – we’re interviewing you, but you are also interviewing us! We want you to be just as enthusiastic about working here as we are. Read on to learn a bit more about what you can expect during the hiring process.

  • Find your passion

    Before you begin your job search, we recommend that you take a moment to focus on you.  – reflect on all the experiences you’ve had and everything you’ve accomplished so far in your career that has brought you here. Consider asking yourself some of the following questions to guide you through this process: 

    • What are you passionate about? What is important to you when looking for a new career opportunity?
    • What is the most rewarding job you’ve ever had? Why?
    • Think of the best team you’ve been on so far in your career: What made that experience stand out?

    Taking the time to reflect and to ask yourself some of these questions will have a positive impact on your job search. It’s important that you are passionate about the role. Taking the time to really think about it will help you determine what meaningful employment looks like to you. At Cogir, we are looking for people with heart and passion for what they do; after you complete this step, both you and we will be better able to align our expectations.
