Top 5 Most Employable Skills that Recruiters are Looking For
Standing out from the crowd can seem quite a daunting task when starting your search for the next step in your career. However, sometimes it can be as simple as ticking all the right boxes. The skills that employers favour most evolves with the times and position, but there are some attractive qualities that are constant. We've used our extensive experience in the recruitment industry to pull together the top 5 most employable skills that recruiters are looking for.
Being able to communicate clearly with a variety of audiences is the key to success at work. Employers want to see evidence that you can effectively adapt your tone to online, phone or face-to-face interactions. Ensure all of your exchanges with a business are clear, concise and confident, but always remember that the ability to listen is just as important.
Demonstrating you can work well in a team and build positive working relationships will show recruiters that you can help achieve the goals of the business. Interviewers will be listening for examples of when you worked in a group to accomplish a task.
Managing others may not be part of the role your applying for immediately, but it is important to show these qualities early to prove you can delegate tasks and make decisions when necessary.
Prioritising your workload is fundamental for prospective employers. Giving examples of where you've had a positive impact on productivity, or managed your time well within tight deadlines is a great way to establish your organisational skills.
Being able to motivate yourself and others indicates to an employer that you are resilient enough to deal with the more challenging times. Enthusiasm and a positive attitude to work are great personality traits to thrive in any business.
