Willing to learn and listen

When starting a new job it is very unlikely that you know how to do everything! So, being willing to learn new skills shows your employer that you are keen.


Approaching the job with a flexible mindset most likely makes you highly valued by the employer as it shows you can respond to changing circumstances.


Employers want to see employees working well individually as well as working alongside others. Teamwork improves the company’s overall performance over time so it is extremely important to be able to work well with your colleagues.


It is extremely important to be honest in your workplace. If you exaggerate about what you can do or lie about your work experience in on your CV, this can seriously affect your future. The easier option would to be honest, tell the truth!
