Surveys continue to show that employers are looking for qualities in their employees that will add value to the organisation.
Interviews are rarely pitched to draw out technical skills or knowledge, which are taken as read and supported by experience and qualifications.
Sure, they want proof that your skills are up to date, but, many questions are aimed at establishing more abstract and hard-to-prove qualities like motivation, creativity, communication skills, and attitudes towards working with colleagues.
Adele Leah calls these 'human skills' and explains why you should focus on the one piece of the career equation you can control – yourself. "It starts with conscious awareness", she says "Personal development allows you to take a step back, take stock, and make better choices about your career, rather than striving for a vision of success that isn't going to make you happy."
