When the employment rate sits on the side of employers, candidates need to step up. We hope this gives job-seekers an insight into what won’t work in today’s competitive market.
This is the candidate who loves a conversation and can talk their way out of anything. They can answer every question, and they almost steal the show with quirky experiences and humorous expressions. Though captivated during the interview, we worried about substance and whether we would actually get high-quality work and commitment.
This was a close contender to our winner because of their candor about what they can and can’t do. We felt confident this person would raise any personal or work issues, and that we wouldn’t need to worry about their being disloyal or divulging confidential information. What we struggled with was the candidate’s confidence and whether they would back themselves when it came to grueling client or media situations.
