#85: A Little Passion Goes a Long Way

Most of the top candidates for a position will meet all the time requirements and have demonstrated great success in their field. The defining difference in an outstanding employee is their attitude or passion.

Attitude is everything. Would a hiring manager rather an employee with great skills and a poor attitude or one with average skills and a great attitude? Skills can be learned. Attitude can be changed but it is much more difficult.

Remember people with positive attitudes are winners. They think positively. The words don't and can't are not in their vocabulary.

During an interview, let your positive attitude or passion shine through!
