What do employers look for in order to separate the best from the average candidates? Every company has its own unique traits that they look for in a potential candidate but there are some that are common in all organizations. Here are the 5 best traits that will get you hired.

  1. Good work ethic: Not only is highlighting your achievements in your CV crucial but showcasing your ability to work hard is important to an employer. Job candidates who respond well to being given goals that are outside of their comfort zone indicate a willingness to do more than is expected.

  2. Reliable: Employers want to see that you are committed to completing tasks in a timely manner. A job candidate who is able to demonstrate this during a job interview will also do it when hired.

  3. Positive attitude: A positive attitude creates a conducive environment that leads to higher productivity; top candidates stand out for their upbeat attitudes.

  4. Ability to work with little direction: Can you take initiative and work with little or no supervision? This is a crucial soft skill that top candidates possess.

  5. Team player: Teamwork makes the dream work! Top candidates who work well with others and are comfortable collaborating with their teammates are what employers look for. Having a history of collaboration will be a plus in your application.

The right fit for an employer is a candidate who possesses a unique combination of these traits and more. What other traits do you think employers should look for? Let us know in the comments!

    in addition, employers need a candidate who can work under pressure as well as one who can multitask. thanks a lot for this lesson.

    have a little concern for trait no. 1. From experience may be one out of 10 employers adhere to good work ethics. much of the time there comes a not so positive when you as the employed gets to enforce good work ethics especially with the senoir management who should actually provide support
