- Personality. 75% of an interview is about personality, which includes how you are dressed, personal hygiene, eye contact, firm handshake, general confidence, initiating questions, speaking ability/clarity and body language.
- Motivation. Why do you want the job? To suit your own needs or those of the company? Are you the kind of employee that just does the minimum or do you really actually care?
- Research/Company Knowledge. Are you familiar with the position, the company, and its services/products? Do you fit in with the culture? Employers want to know that you have a genuine interest in their company and aren’t just looking for a job.
- Competency. The interviewer wants to hire a competent employee…someone they can trust with a new position and the authority to fix the problem. It costs a company $10,000+ in unproductive costs to hire and bring on a new employee. They want to hire someone that is competent, serious about the job and the company, and looking to stay on board for a while. Another way to word this is emotional intelligence. Intellectual intelligence is overrated. Emotional intelligence is far more useful in life and to employers.
