Here Are Important Tips To Secure That Dream Job Of Yours

Employers have certain qualities they look out for when hiring any employee.

They want to find someone who knows what they’re doing, but whose salary is within the company’s budget. They want to take the time to get to know their employee, but you may be facing pressure to fill a vacant position quickly.

Sometimes, it could be a difficult process for Companies when trying to hire; this is where they come up with standards for a prospective employee to posses before he/she can secure the job.

As an individual who is seeking for a job in a dream company or organisation, its your duty to find out these qualities, and try to posses them all, or at least most of them.

These are some o f the qualities that will make you employable;

1. Communicative

Your interview is the perfect time to prove to your employers how effective your are at communicating. While some jobs, like being an account executive or a writer, demand communication skills as a primary responsibility, all jobs require effective communication to some degree. You must be able to report to a supervisor or instructing subordinates, writing reports and emails, and participating in meetings. Try to be articulate and understandle (express yourself in a simple manner).
Lacking the ability to communicate well during an interview, could get you the boot.

2. Disciplined

Discipline is what drives people to achieve their goals. It makes people more productive, keeping them moving even while unmotivated, and makes them more focused, eliminating distractions to focus on what’s important. Your prospective employers can generally tell how disciplined you are based on how you arrive and interact in the context of the interview. Are you sharply dressed? Were you five minutes early, or late to the interview? What type of hobbies and interests do you have–do you live a disciplined lifestyle even outside of work?

3. Passionate

Employees who put passion ahead of incentives are far more likely to be productive and successful during the course of their stay, and they’re going to be happier doing it. That means employers want people who’ll stick with the company for the long haul and are more likely to find creative alternative solutions to problems when they arise, rather than ignoring them or finding temporary workarounds.

“Finding passionate employees can be difficult, but its important that whoever you hire is excited about what they do. Passionate employees often take on more responsibilities and roles outside of their normal job description which is crucial too early start ups” says Jay Hostetter, CTO of Infographics.Space. Passionate employees can be identified based on how they act when they talk about their previous positions and what they like to do. Do your eyes seem to light up when you talk about it or do you sit back with an effortless monotone voice?

4. Ambitious

There’s a sharp difference between average employees, who are merely looking to fill a role and receive a paycheck, and ambitious ones, who are self-driven to accomplish something greater. Companies want people Sometimes who desire to push the organisation forward with newer, better ideas. How that ambition manifests itself is not nearly as important as the simple fact that the ambition is there. Remember that ambition leads to self-motivation, and without that, you will find yourself frustrated or tired of work.

5. Positive

A little positivity goes a long way, even in a large firm. Attitudes are contagious, meaning the overall positivity or negativity of an individual will bear an impact on the health and mental attitude of an entire work team. By gradually introducing more and more positive, optimistic characteristics, you’ll shape the atmosphere of your company for the better. Employers love optimistic workers because they work harder, happier, and together more productively. They look for positivity in how you respond to questions about your past–do you bring up lots of challenges, problems, and complaints, or more successes, insights, and opportunities?

6. Culturally Fit
This quality is entirely subjective, because each office’s company culture is unique. What may be a cultural fit for Deloitte  may not be a cultural fit for Dufil. This is a question of personality and of team dynamics. Employers want people who feel at home in the company’s culture established, and someone who can work easily with other employees.
Peter Kim says, “Finding a candidate who has a personality and passion that’s in line with your company is important, especially in the beginning. Having someone who gets along with the team while being able to satisfy the company’s objective keeps the energy positive and momentum going.”
Prepare yourself for some personality-focused questions before any interview to uncover these qualities.

7. Honest

Honesty is hard to come by, but it’s critical if you want to become a successful employee. Employers appreciate honest feedbacks as they believe it allows processes to improve and productivity to increase. Honest conversations prevent some problems and allow others to be resolved faster. You can’t expect your to be employers to ask directly if you are an honest person–obviously, your answer will always be “YES”. Ensure that you don’t lie aboiut anything on your resume or during the interview, you may never know how someone would find out.

Be sure to prioritize these seven qualities when going for an interview. With these and a great confidence, it won’t be long before you get that dream job.
