Non-Negotiables clients look for…

I’ve recently reviewed several articles about the economy and how technology fits with in the down turn as well as hiring has changed because of it.  One article really stuck in my head.. “Seven “Non-Negotiables” to prevent a bad hire”.    Not only is the article informative in regards to what traits company’s are looking for now, but it can help applicants fine tune their interviewing process.

Obviously companies have a “screening” process they follow and some even look at personal characteristics that have morphed into becoming more of a primary criteria for making hiring decisions.  These “characteristics” are  Respect, Belief, Loyalty, Commitment, Trust, Courage and Gratitude… it all boils down to integrity.. “is this someone that will benefit my organization long term?”.

Bottom line is, company’s really looking for talented individuals that are looking to make a difference… not someone looking to build their resume anymore.
