Be Coachable

soft skills word art 2.jpg

One of the best qualities that a job seeker can develop is tenacity. Tenacity allows you to try again when you experience a setback and move forward when an error is found. Tenacious people keep going even when they think they can go no further. Tenacity provides the “fuel” or energy to other qualities such as commitment, attentiveness, a willingness to learn, and “coachability.” Being coachable is apparent in a job seeker who has a certain amount of openness to trying new approaches, learning new things, and a willingness to grow in understanding of what they and others bring to the table in terms of skills and experience. Thus, those who are coachable get noticed by interviewers, often making such an impression that it influences positively your chances of being hired.
