Human resources interviewers love nothing more than meeting productive workers. They shouldn’t just work efficiently and hard, they should enjoy the process and be game to pursue new opportunities. When interviewing job candidates, the HR representative wants to meet candidates that inspire others to work harder and can work effectively in team situations. They want people that are focused more on action rather than talk. Interviewees should stress during job interviews ways they plan to create and carry out their plans.
- Proactive employees are more likely to take action when new opportunities arise.
- It is important to balance demonstrating your proactive and action-oriented nature with emphasizing that you are a team player.
- You should be able to explain how being proactive makes you better able to deal with challenges.
“Being proactive or action oriented at work is one of the most appreciated skills by HR interviewers.”
