The best way to understand how to do this is to realize what the company wants exactly and then, see to it that you come across as a person who possesses these skills. The medium may be anything but the prominent are the resume and the interview.
The most prominent thing that a company looks for in an individual is critical thinking. You should be able to use logic and reasoning so that you could analyse the problems, the solutions to the problems and the more viable alternatives.
So how can you come across as someone who possesses this quality? The best way that is by appearing perfectly logical in the interviews and creating some controversy by mentioning that you do not believe that logic always provides solutions. This way you would be driving attention to the fact that you are very logical (not to mention that you should prepare a couple of logical reasons as to why logic doesn’t always provide the solution)but are also able to tackle situations where you have to take prompt decisions.
Proper communication skills also help you land the job much more quickly. By communication, I mean that you should be an active listener and should be able to get across your points fairly easily as well. To come across as someone who possesses proper communications skills, you must make sure that you do not ask vague questions in the interview and you should appear to be very attentive as well. Asking questions does prove to be beneficial as it shows that you are paying attention. However, if you ask questions just for the sake of asking them, you can find yourself in deep trouble.
Decision making is another important aspect of you that needs to be considered. If you have always found it difficult to reach to decisions then, I would recommend reading up on this. As far as coming across as a decision maker is considered, you can easily do this by sticking to what you have said about yourself in the resume and providing support to your decision with logic and reasoning if you are asked about it.
If the single most overlooked factor was to be discussed, it would certainly be the time management criterion. The employers know that if their employees do not manage their time, they would end up doing the same thing in a day when it could have been done in an hour. That is why they always look for very efficient employees. If you do not stay organized, you should start staying organized. Decide upon your tasks for the day, prioritize them and then, provide a time limit for their completion.
You definitely improve your chances of landing a job if you follow these tips, however simple they may seem.
