Top 5 Qualities To Show In Job Interviews Dat Will Give You An Egde Over Others by careercoach(f): 11:25am On Jan 17, 2017
1] Appropriate Professional Appearance: Company representatives like to hire people who look and behave like the rest of the employees, but they also want new people to stand out in productivity and innovative thinking. Interview candidates often need to be the best of both sides - familiar and accepted vs. new and forward thinking.

MAIN POINT :Clothing and Grooming Are Important
How do the rest of the workers at the company dress? You might want to drive by and take a look before your interview.

2] High Energy and Interest in Working: Bosses and supervisors want employees that will be working with good energy all the time. At the start of a job interview, they can observe such a quality of energy as the employee enters the room.

MAIN POINT :High energy shows in your posture, your walk, and your eyes. If you have it, your job interviews will be more successful. If you have high energy at work, employers will think you are more likely to do a good job if they promote you or give you a raise, than workers who are less productive.

3] Good Work Ethic: What is "good"? To a slacker, all work is too hard. Employers want workers that want to work.

MAIN POINT: A person that has a good work ethic has usually learned it from somewhere -- such as from family and teachers. Employers look for this desire and willingness to work in every potential employee.

4] Follow Through: Good follow through is shown in a goal-oriented individual with a history of completing his/her projects on time - and often with additional work over that which is necessary in order to make the project extra-good.

MAIN POINT: Futher, this is not a person that picks up his first paycheck and never returns to the job. (Follow through is useful in both personal and professional lives.)

5] Attitude: Performing Well is More Important Than the Paycheck.

MAIN POINT : Some people work only for the money and they usually don't do a very good job at the work, because they don't like it. Such a person has little inner motivation to do well at this job. They often develop a resentment of work, the boss, and the company. Consequently, they will hold back their best from the job, do little real work, and coast to retirement if they can.
Attitude can become more proactive and positive.
