Corporate environments are changing as the times change. However, there are some characteristics that recruiters would like to see in their future employees (in no particular order).
#1 – Dedication
Every recruiter would welcome an employee who is enthusiastic about his or her job, the company, or the products or services they provide. Someone who speaks, looks, and acts in the manner of a true brand ambassador. Someone who can easily attract new clients, who spreads the word about how great it is to work at his company, and who receives rave reviews from clients about how well he does his job.
#2 – Inspiration
Every recruiter would welcome the addition of a self-motivated employee. Someone who does not need to be pushed or reminded about what needs to be done or how it should be done.Someone who looks forward to returning to work on Monday because “I can’t wait to get started with this fantastic new project.” Let’s see what I can move this time.” Remember that motivation can’t be taught; you either have it or you don’t. During the interview, make sure to find out how motivated the potential hire is.
#3 – Collaboration
Every recruiter would welcome the addition of a team player to their team. Having a great team player on your team can provide your company with the following benefits: Goals will be met or exceeded more quickly, targets will be met or exceeded, and the work environment will be happier, healthier, more positive, and more productive as a result of the employee’s colab
#4 – Expertise
Every recruiter would welcome the addition of an employee who is fully capable of performing his job duties. Someone who understands what, when, and how something should be done. A person who can achieve specific results if specific goals are set. A person who is also willing to learn new skills quickly in order to stay current with industry standards.
#5 – Interaction
Every recruiter would welcome the addition of a good communicator to their team. Someone who understands how to communicate effectively in any situation (verbally on the phone or in person, in writing emails/letters, on social media, or through body language). There are numerous examples of business relationships, deals, and jobs that have been lost due to a failure to communicate effectively with others.
#6 – Adaptability
Every recruiter would welcome an employee who is adaptable in terms of working hours, working days, travel commitments, and job duties.
Someone who can demonstrate that he will not stop working as soon as the clock strikes 5 p.m., who is willing to work during unsocial hours, who is willing to travel to other cities or countries and can stay away from home for a few days, and who takes on duties outside of their official job description is often difficult to find and thus very welcome.
#7 – Troubleshooter
Every recruiter would welcome the addition of a problem solver to their team. Someone who understands how to deal with and solve problems that arise during specific tasks.
Not only that, but an employee who can make suggestions to the company on how to solve other corporate issues (even if they go beyond his own responsibilities) is a valuable addition to the team. Without a doubt.
#8 – Honesty
Every boss would welcome the addition of an employee with a strong sense of integrity. Someone who is honest with themselves and others, who is not afraid to admit their strengths and weaknesses, who is loyal and would never criticise an employer or other employees (previous and current ones).
#9th – Likeability
Every boss would welcome the addition of a likeable employee to their team. Someone with excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to deal with a wide range of people (team and management members, suppliers, clients, fans, and the general public) at all levels and at all times. Remember, people prefer to do business with people they like and can rely on! Similarly, recruiters want to hire people they like (after ensuring they meet all of the other requirements, of course!).
#10 – Dependability
Every boss would welcome the addition of an employee who can be trusted and relied on regardless of the circumstances.
Knowing that there is someone on hand who can handle specific tasks can be very reassuring. For example, if a deadline must be met within a specific timeframe, someone must be notified immediately, or a change to something must be made at the last minute, you know that person will do it. Isn’t that a great feeling?
What can we take away from this? It is not enough to know a job inside and out; you must also have the right personality traits to land and carry out a job. It is now the recruiter’s responsibility to determine the extent to which a job applicant possesses these characteristics. Best wishes and happy recruiting!
