Qualities and Skills That Will Get You Hired
High competition in the job market has raised the bar for professionals seeking employment. There are now specific qualities and skills you must possess in order to be viewed as a viable candidate. Work on developing these five qualities to appeal to employers at top companies.
Five Qualities and Skills That Will Help You Land Your Dream Job
1. Excellent Communication Skills
Regardless of the role you’re applying for, you need great communication skills — both verbal and non-verbal. Employers desire candidates who can easily hold a conversation, are convincing and can convey their message in the most effective way.
The skills gap in the IT market has resulted in a high demand for certifications. Candidates must demonstrate the right technical skills and knowledge to fill job roles effectively. Attend courses, get certified and impress recruiters with recognized validation of your expertise.
Employers prefer candidates who are creative thinkers and can come up with interesting and innovative ideas that add value to the company. Think outside the box when coming up with solutions, making decisions and when providing your opinions and suggestions.
4. Strong Work Ethic
Employers value a strong work ethic. Be professional, respectful, dependable, determined, accountable, dedicated and, above all, humble.
5. Will to Learn
Employers don’t necessarily want candidates who are the best; they want candidates who want to be the best. Candidates who are willing to continuously learn and improve are desirable. Try not to come off as a know-it-all; aim to learn new skills, update your knowledge and always strive to be better.
These skills and qualities are essential in the workplace today. Work on improving them and watch your career soar to new heights!
