Employing a new face with fresh ideas into a business is as exciting an opportunity for the employer as it is for the candidate and bringing the ability to think creatively and critically is going to establish you as someone offering that little bit extra.
There are also attributes, that if you own them, are worth noting as part of the process of selling yourself as the ideal candidate. These include aspects of your personality such as being empathetic, cooperative and flexible which often translates into you being a great team member. These abilities will showcase you as someone who can adapt, adjust and work inclusively within the organisation.
Team harmony is a critical element of business success. Just ask any HR professional who has dealt with conflict in a team environment how overwhelmingly destructive this can be to morale, output and the achievement of business outcomes. Conflict is a disaster for business so demonstrating your skill set as a harmonising force who can go with the flow and bring a cooperative spirit will be a welcome addition to any organisation and give you a definite head start as a preferred candidate.
