Resiliency: Employers can sense a weak or timid employee a mile away. Your professional background can also be tell-tale signs of one who retreats during times of challenge. However, resiliency is a much desired trait because employers want to know that theyâ€™re hiring someone who wonâ€™t break down or quit during tough times. Hannah Morgan, Career Strategist and creator of Careersherpa.net confirms that â€œin today's highly volatile and ever-changing workplace, being able to spring back as a solid performer and contributor is a necessity for employers.â€ Use the interview as your opportunity to prove your resiliency. Talk about past professional challenges and how you overcame them. â€œThe interviewer can watch the body language and tone of the applicant for signs of discomfort that would indicate this experience may not have been a positive one or one they adapted to well,â€ states Hannah.
