Recruiters Look for Skills, Passion and Cooperation

An interview can be one of the most nerve-wracking steps during the job search. Even the most confident professionals experience jitters before stepping into the employer's office. One way to help prevent pre-interview anxiety is by preparing as much as possible to ensure you understand the position and the responsibilities that go along with it.

Essentially, recruiters will ask candidates three questions. Even if they don't come out and ask them directly, employers want to know these key pieces of information: Can you do the job? Will you love the job? And, can we tolerate working with you?

First, students must articulate how they can do the job.

"We ask for specific examples of not only what's been successful but what they've done that hasn't gone well," Kevin Kelly, CEO of Heidrick & Struggles, told Forbes.

While technical skills are important to employers, the ability to work with other people is just as crucial to creating a successful team.

Additionally, showing passion for the field is a must for students applying for jobs. Most young employees work hard because they enjoy the challenges associated with the job, and the only way to achieve that is to find positions they're passionate about.

A fundamental education will also help students prepare for careers in their fields of choice. Career programs like Accounting and Payroll Administrator and Business Administration/E-Commerce Management at Vancouver Career College provide students with practical training that will help them excel on the job.
