What do employers want?

Job seekers try to anticipate the qualities most sought after by their next recruiter interviewer. According to a 2012 study, “Professionalism in the Workplace,” from an HR standpoint the most essential qualities of professionalism are:

  • Interpersonal skills (33.6%)
  • Appearance (25.3%)
  • Communication skills (24.9%)
  • Time management (20.8%)
  • Confidence (20.7%)
  • Ethics (15.2%)
  • Work ethic (14.2%)
  • Knowledge (9.3%)

The report also suggests that the popular obsession with social media is hindering recent hires' ability to maintain a strong, qualified presence on the job. The study reported 83% of new hires spend time with social media (texting, Facebook, Flickr) at work--and it is a problem with employers.
