Personality Traits and the Likability Factor
The right personality traits can help job seekers create a certain “Likability Factor” which is very important in securing the offer. During my time on various interview committees, once all the candidates had completed their interviews, we did not ask ourselves which candidate do you think had the most experience? We would look around the room and ask which candidates did you like? Of course experience or the correct skill-set is important, but decision-makers tend to hire people that they like and are a good fit for their team.
As the economy reopens, this is a good time to review your career goals, update your resume, and refine your interviewing skills. If you need additional assistance, please contact Job Transitions for a free resume review and initial consultation. www.jobtransitions.net/contact
