What Does Employers Look for in Potential Employees?
Knowingwhat an employer is looking for in a potential employee can help us to preparefor an interview. An interviewer may have such questions in his mind: Whatspecific skills am I looking for in the people who apply for a job? And how doI identify these skills?
First,most important for him in the way of skills is the ability to communicate ---can people speak clearly? Can they express the kind of person they believethemselves to be? In what kind of situation do they perform well? What aretheir strengths and weaknesses? So what he’s looking for is an ability toverbalize an idea in clear, simple, understandable language.
Second,he is looking for creativity. He will ask some “odd” questions. How do they respond in these tough situations --- canthey be creative with their answers? This is very important when they are outin business situations with customers. They will have to respond to very suddenchanges and problem-solving situation that they are not familiar with, and theinterviewer wants to know if they can handle them.
Third,what he looks for the most are personal qualities --- assertiveness, drive,ambition and a competitive instinct. They should be high achievers and want towork hard. How they present their experiences? Forexample, an assertive person will say, “I can do these things” and “I decidedin this course of action,” whereas a more passive person might say, “These arethe experiences I have had.” All of these things describe the person in someway.
