I would love to say that all you need to get a job is an online degree and a good opportunity. That is not the case though. Sometimes you actually have to use your personality to land a job as well, which may be a challenge if you aren’t used to wooing people without being cheesy. A lot of the jobs that I have earned and maintained were purely the result of my personality. My capabilities as a cv writer played a main role in the positions. If you want to guarantee that you will get a job in the near future, you need to learn how to use charm the right way.
Here are some tips to help you do just that.
A Smile Shows Approachability
If you smile a lot when you are in a job interview, you will show the hiring manager that you are approachable and kind. That will go a long way in helping you get a job because it will show the employer that you can be a good team player. When I say smile, I’m not talking about a creepy, insincere smile – nor am I talking about something that seems forced or unprofessional. You have to just work in a smile when you first shake hands with the person, and any other time you feel that it is fitting and appropriate. Little subtle changes in behavior like this will make a big difference in the impression you leave on your potential employer.
A Sense of Humor Shows Likability
There is nothing wrong with making a joke or two in a job interview as long as they are appropriate for work. You have to say these in the right way too. Otherwise they could come off as disrespectful or even mean. I like to answer with, “I suppoooooose you can do that” when a potential employer asks if he or she can do something with my application. It shows just enough lightheartedness to be likeable without going overboard with humor. This is a delicate balance to master, but it is something that could help you land a job in the future.
Eye Contact Shows Confidence
If you really want to make a good impression on your employer, you need to make eye contact when he or she talks. This will be both charming and enticing at the same time. When you look someone in the eyes, he or she is instantly compelled to talk to you even more. This shows that you are confident in who you are and why you should be chosen for a job. A little bit of eye contact could go a long way in the workforce.
A Flirtatious Personality Shows…
That you’re a bit of a whore. Goodness, that is terrible of me to say, but it is true. If you have to flirt your way to getting a job, you aren’t going to be very respected in the end. You need to be charming without coming across as a flirt. I know the terms may be somewhat interchangeable in the dating world, but they aren’t in the job market. Keep the flirtation in check and try to remain as professional as possible.
You are the only one that can master the charm you need for a job interview. It could definitely help you get a job in the future, but only if you know how to use it. Don’t bat your eyes and assume that you will get a job. You may need a slightly different tactic. Hopefully the tips above will help you find that in the end.
