How Personality Affects A Job Interview

When it comes to a job interview, it’s not all about what’s written down.

To nail the perfect job interview, you need to be able to read between the lines when it comes to your presentation. Your personality can make or break your job opportunity, according to a new report by Resume Library and TopInterview. There are many things you can do right or wrong during a job interview, but here are the five worst things you can do.

  1. The worst trait you can present to a potential new employer is arrogance. The study included the input of hundreds of HR professionals, and it’s clear to everyone who works in hiring, arrogance is a huge turnoff.
  2. Dishonesty won’t help you win anyone’s trust.
  3. A sense of entitlement sets off a huge red flag that you’re going to be more trouble than you’re worth.
  4. Unreliability is a terrible trait to have communicated to a potential employer.
  5. Closed-mindedness rounds out the top five least attractive personality traits when it comes to landing a job.

On the flip-side, employers are far more likely to hire those who demonstrate:

  1. Confidence
  2. Authenticity
  3. Honesty
  4. Reliability
  5. Self-discipline

Your personality traits shine through to others through your history and presentation. Someone who is humble, reliable, and hard-working simply provides more benefits at less risk than someone who exhibits the traits that put employers off the most.
