When applying for jobs the primary goal is, of course, to get hired. Chances are there’s another applicant with core skills that are equal to or even better than yours. Set yourself apart by knowing what adjunct skills you need to get hired on the spot.
Here are seven that should do the trick.
You need to be able to say what you mean in a clear, concise manner without losing your listener. People often equate communication with saying a lot, but effective communication is a two-way street.
Develop a rapport with your interviewer and you are a shoe-in for the job.
Now more than ever, you need to show that you can meet any challenge head on and go with the flow. Highlight the problems you helped solve in previous jobs. Show that you are like the bamboo, flexible but strong.
Being able to work harmoniously with a group is a valuable skill in any setting, and one that’s sure to get you hired. Show interest in the other people at the workplace to demonstrate that you can and want to work with different kinds of people.
Employers look for people with a strong work ethic. Talk about the innovations you introduced into your previous workplace. Come across as someone who takes pride in their work and does what’s needed without being told.
Most workers serve several functions nowadays, so you should indicate that you aren’t new to multi-tasking. Set reasonable limits, however, to show that you are not willing to sacrifice the quality of work to get more done.
While it may not sound like a very professional skill, employers tend to hire people they like. It certainly makes the workplace a lot more pleasant.
Okay, that’s not a real word, but it should be. Show your potential boss that you’re willing to try new things and learn new skills. In fact, you should firmly insist upon it (politely, of course).
Just keep these things in mind the next time you go for an interview, and provided your core skills qualify you for the job, you should have no problems getting hired. Good luck!
