What Turns Potential Employers ON; What Turns Them OFF?


According to an annual survey conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, these are the most important qualities that employers are looking for in a job candidate, in priority order:

(1) Communication skills;

(2) Honesty/integrity;

(3) Teamwork skills;

(4) Interpersonal skills;

(5) A strong work ethic.

Be sure to highlight those skills in your resume, during your interview, and in your thank-you letter.

That same survey discovered the number-one thing that can turn potential employers off -- a job candidate's appearance! Specifically, they cited unusual hair color or style, body piercings, tattoos, and unusual clothing as things that most often gave a bad first impression.

What you think is "cool" may be the "hot" ticket to the reject list! So keep your need to express yourself under wraps during the interview, and you'll have a better shot at getting the job.
