#CareerTipsTuesday “I speak with job seekers every day who are looking for their next adventure. The best advice I can give someone is that opportunity doesn’t knock on your door every day. When you see an opening for your dream job, you have to go for it. You may never feel ready to take the leap, but be confident that your past experience has prepared you for your next step!”
— Morgan Jaffe Kravitz, IKEA Senior Recruiter,
Conshohocken, PA (Philadelphia-based) Service Office
We’re so excited for our newest IKEA store in Live Oak (San Antonio area) this week! Our grand opening celebration will be on Wednesday, February 13th —a day filled with a day of fun for the entire family and tons of giveaways!
At IKEA, our values define us and build our inclusive, open and honest culture. As part of continued training for our Talent Acquisition team, a special guest panel shared their unique IKEA journeys and discussed how our culture and values have guided them in the work and in their lives.

"And it is a matter of equal rights. Management can and should take responsibility for furthering diversity and inclusion, and a company’s leadership must take action.” — Lars Petersson, Country Manager, IKEA Retail U.S at NRF 2019
Addressing diversity issues requires an organization to hold candid conversations in the workplace, understand the power of unconscious bias and share practices that work, inside the organization and out.
