While normally we talk about job hunting or interviews, now let's take a look at the employer's perspective and see what employee the employer wants to hire.
So, I listened to a podcast made by a CEO of a company. He mentioned the following 4 traits of the ideal employee he would want to hire:
1) Does the person have integrity?
If you can't trust them you can't rely on them obviously.
2) Does the person have the skill set and the ability to do what you need them to do in this role?
3) Does this person have a winning mindset? Meaning are they oriented toward success or are they one of those very poor guys that's been raised since childhood to believe that even if they get the ball to the one yard line, they're gonna fumble and someone else is gonna get the credit. There are unfortunately many, many people like that. The ideal employee to hire is the people that know that they deserve to take that last step into the end zone because it's theirs, they earned it, if anyone deserves it it's them.
4) Would I want to sit next to this person on an airplane for eight hours?
