Top 5 Things Every Hiring Manager Looks For in a New Hire

1. A positive energy
When you walk into that interview for your dream job, show that hiring manager that you are a positive force that should not be ignored. Positive people want to be around other positive people, it's simple. One negative employee can bring all of employee morale down, so be positive when you interview.

2. A proper amount of enthusiasm
Be excited about your field and the career you want. Show this not only in your interview but in your resume and cover letter too. Hiring managers want people who are passionate to be a part of their teams. If you are just working somewhere for the paycheck the odds are you aren't going to very happy about it and likely you won't do as good of work as you would if you were passionate about it.

3. An understanding of the company
Do your research about the company you are applying to work at. You can even go as far as reaching out to people who already work there before your interview. Look them up on LinkedIn and introduce yourself, just explain you're interested in working at the company and would like to know more about their experience there.

4. Well researched
Show your hiring manager that you have done your homework on the company. Have a real understanding of their culture and the type of people that they hire. People want to hire other people that they feel will get along well with the current team.

5. Related experience
Show your past job experiences can be helpful when it applies to this job. Hiring managers want to know you're not only qualified for the position but if you go above and beyond those qualifications by explaining all that you have learned in your past job experiences and how your skills can really be of use to this new company, you may just stand out from the rest of the applicants.
