When writing up your resume and cover letter and preparing for an interview, you want to make sure it conveys who you really are as an individual. Yet, as you fine tune everything, Onewire Blog gives you a few more things to consider. The blog conducted numerous interviews of prominent executive leaders in the business world, and here are the seven things it said that you need to get across to a potential employer:
  1.   Passion-If you really want this job, show that to your employers. Show them how much you care about your work and why you do what you do.
  2. Drive-It doesn’t matter how smart you are if you have no drive to get things done. Demonstrate to the interviewer that you have what it takes to be successful.
  3.  Integrity-The business world can be a hard place, but that doesn’t justify cutting corners. Show your boss that you can play by the rules and still get ahead.
  4. Maturity-Growing up can be hard. Nevertheless, it is crucial that your potential employer has no doubts about your abilities to handle tough and complex situations with poise and maturity.
  5. The Firm First-No matter how far you want to get in life, remember that you can only go so far as your firm. In order for you to succeed, the firm must also succeed.
  6.  Skill-Remember all that stuff you learned in college? This would be the perfect time to show everyone that you actually know what you’re doing.
  7. Overcoming Challenges-Potential employers want to know how their employees deal with obstacles. Make it apparent that you can face and handle not only the everyday challenges, but also the more difficult and complex ones.
