When getting interviewed for a job post, you tell the hiring manager about your background and share why your skills and experience match the position you're applying for. However, this is not all that it takes to determine if you're fit for the job. According to Lynn Taylor, a national workplace expert and the author of "Tame Your Terrible Office Tyrant: How to Manage Childish Boss Behavior and Thrive in Your Job, skills can be learned and can be taught but character and personality traits are innate.

If you aim to impress the hiring manager and land that job, here are personality traits you should show you possess:

Honesty and integrity

These are one of the most important and valuable traits that hiring managers are looking at. And it's important that you don't just tell them you possess these traits as they should also reflect in your demeanor and in the conversation in general.


It is an attractive trait if you show that you are sincerely excited, eager and upbeat. It will give them the impression that you have a positive attitude about your job and are up for any challenge.


Employers appreciate employees who do not hesitate to stand up for what is right instead of going along with everything that the boss says.

Emotional intelligence

Emotional intelligence or E.Q. is something that is not taught in school which is why it is very much valued today. It can tell how a person deals with difficult situations and challenges and making sure they remain in control of the situation.


Respect is vital in any relationship may it be in personal or professional relationships. And managers want to make sure they are going to be dealing with respectful employees who know how to maintain a certain level of humility.
