For many managers, personal qualities have great meaning in choosing the right candidate for a particular job. Despite the perfect CV, for many employers it is important what kind of person is the candidate and everything you have to offer if you stand on the specified position.
To make a strong first impression, try to display the following qualities:
The ability to communicate clearly and effectively in many mediums: by email, verbally, with lists and phone messages, on the phone, and with body language. Communication also includes listening skills and the ability to follow directions and provide feedback.
Employers want accurate and timely information regarding their business and their employees. Made a mistake? Don’t cover it up, admit it, and learn not to do it again.
Most positions require certain skills that are advertised on the Job Posting. If you are hired to perform certain tasks then you should have the skills. Improving your skills along the way is also expected.
Be at work on time, do what you were hired to do, meet targets and deadlines and work to the best of your ability. What more could an employer ask?
Employers and their employees need to react quickly to changing business conditions. Employers need employees who can change gears and adapt as required.
Determination and Persistence
Managers will give employees challenging goals but generally they are achievable. The key is to be able to work hard and keep moving forward when you encounter obstacles.
Employers and managers like to have people working with them and for them who can get along with their colleagues and who can work with others effectively in different circumstances.
Companies are looking for people who are motivated to take on challenges with minimal direction. Employees should see when something needs to be done and react accordingly.
Employers want and need to be able to trust their employees to work professionally to meet the employer’s best interests. Employers do not want to hire people who require close scrutiny or who cannot be trusted to represent the company in public.
