How to stand out in an interview?

7 October 2022

Here are four great qualities you possess that will help you stand out from the crowd:

  • Passion: which often includes proactivity and drive. No matter what you decide to call it, employers know that those who are passionate and motivated are willing to put in the extra effort when it’s needed!
  • Trust: true trust (deep, not outward) is often marked by humility. A great way to show your confidence is to make eye contact, have an upright posture, and remain calm and genuine.
  • Team spirit: knowing how to adapt and contribute generously to a group always pays off in the end. If you are always thinking about yourself, no one will be there for you in your time of need. Flexibility and openness are necessary when working with people who complement us.
  • Reliability and self-discipline: Your sense of responsibility, duty and honor will bring you more opportunities within an organization. This quality is essential when awarding promotions.

Preparing yourself before an interview is really important: it will demonstrate your motivation and credibility for the position you want!
