Recently, the resume-writing service TopResume revealed what turns employers on — and off — about job candidates.
In a nutshell, when presented with a list of 21 traits and asked which personality traits impress hiring managers the most, the following five characteristics were considered the most attractive: (1) Adaptability, (2) Reliability, (3) Authenticity, (4) Confidence, and (5) Honesty.
Do you know how to demonstrate these positive traits on your resume and during an interview? Or how can you work towards building these traits if they don’t come naturally?
TopResume’s career expert, Amanda Augustine, CPCC, CPRW, will join me to discuss what this survey will mean for job seekers.
