Teamwork
working in a team will most likely be the set up when you start with a job. Though you have excellent leadership skills chances are you won’t be won’t be leading the team right away. Employers need to know that you’re equally comfortable working either alone as a member of a team. When going into your interview, be prepared with examples of your work and activities that demonstrate your teamwork skill.
Strong work ethic
Some new employees are eager to stay late and prove themselves. But others are more interested in life outside of work–and will try to leave early at every opportunity. Even though technology enables employees to work from home in a wide variety of professions, many workplaces are still quite traditional–and expect you to show how hard you’re working by putting in face time. If you can do that as a new employee, you’re likely to gain the appreciation of your more senior co–workers.
Technical skills
One’s natural technical skills may give him the edge over employees. It is usually expected from fresh graduates because their young. Most companies hire young employees with the hope that they can apply their “natural” technical skills. If you’re not up on the latest social marketing techniques or blogging platforms, gain that knowledge and you’re likely to be invaluable in a company that doesn’t already have employees with this expertise.
Interpersonal skills
How well do you work with others? And how well do you fit inĀ  with the office culture? Many new graduates have little work experience and struggle to fit in at first. If you have strong interpersonal skills and can interact productively with your team members from day one, you’ll demonstrate your value right away.
Presentation skills
Not everyone is good at public. And the lesser experience you have in the job market will make it harder for you to deliver a strong presentation. If you can demonstrate this skill, it will likely help you in your job search and make you a more compelling candidate.
Business etiquette
Getting the job isn’t easy in today’s economy. And keeping it can be difficult, too–lack of job experience, making obvious mistakes such as wearing flip–flops to work in a formal office. Others don’t have the people skills necessary to treat everyone well–no matter how much experience they have, and no matter how many years they’ve been out of college.
Demonstrate that you have these skills, and you’ll make yourself valuable to the company, your co–workers, and your boss. With strong writing, presentation, teamwork, and business etiquette skills, you will be far ahead of other employees without a lot of job experience and you’re sure to prosper in your first job.
