Get hired quick with these top 5 skills

The hiring game has completely changed. Skills that used to be prioritized in job interviews are no longer the most appealing traits employers seek.

Instead, hiring managers are keen on identifying skills that build out other skills. 

Fortunately, a newly-released study by consulting firm Cappfinity identified five behavioral skills that individuals could use as a foundation to build new talents and abilities. 

Curious to know what they are? Take a look below:


Recruiters are drawn to people who ask great questions, investigate, and are unafraid to expand their horizons. Courteous people are often open to new situations and experiences as they believe it provides them with more opportunities and discoveries. 

Learning Agility

The ability to pivot knowledge into something that could help the workplace could be helpful in landing a job. Hiring managers often pay close attention to this ability as it also brings quick ROI to their companies. 

Growth Mindset

Those who possess a growth mindset have the desire to conquer new challenges, even if they require persistence to succeed. They believe they can achieve their goals and find it motivating to work on unfamiliar projects.

Critical Analysis

If you have the capacity to look at issues from different perspectives and enjoy consulting with multiple people to identify the next steps and make informed decisions, then you may be an expert at critical analysis. 


Those who know that working with others is the best way to achieve results and who enjoy contributing and delivering on shared goals can add collaboration to their list of skills. You most likely work well in person and virtually and can adapt your communication style. 

Be sure to show your interviewer the kind of teammate you want to be and how you plan on showing up to work if they were to give you this role.

It is important to think of these skills as accelerators that will help you develop yourself further in your career. 

Whether you are searching for a new role, getting back to work, or are a recent graduate, highlighting these skills to recruitment managers will show that you are not only qualified but also have the potential for future leadership roles in the company.
