We pride ourselves in our ability to help candidates.
If you are searching for a recruitment agency and are a permanent resident and look for a “white collar“ job then we might be a good fit for each other.
Our clients are always looking for candidates who fit a High Achievers profile.
What does it take to land your dream job?
Well, if you are dreaming about it – it is fair to say that other people are dreaming about it too. If you see an opportunity – other people are also seeing it. Therefore, there is competition. So, who will get that dream job in the end? In my experience, the high achiever will often get the job.
The question is, what does it take to become a High Achiever? What does a good candidate look like?
1 They are action focused. While actions may sometimes lead to failure, High Achievers see this as an opportunity to learn. When they fail – they get back up. They will not be shy – they will try again. Candidates will then often succeed on the 2nd attempt. That success gives them confidence. Confidence to take on more action and to achieve even more. Don’t be afraid of doing things because you may fail. You learn more from failure than from successes.
2 Behavioural fit. Most people prefer to work with people they like – I do and I am sure you do too. While most candidates are set in their ways, High Achievers are able to adapt their style to fit in with other people and teams. They can work with almost anyone. For me, behavioural flexibility is an important trait.
3 They are positive. Employees who come to work fresh and energetic every day are going to outproduce staff who think negatively and easily burn-out when they encounter difficulties or defeat.
Upbeat and optimistic employees try to find a way out of even the most difficult situations. They often create a working environment that is uniquely positive. They are enjoyable for the other people to work with.
4 Integrity. An employee can have all the talent in the world, but without integrity, nothing great will be accomplished.
5 They are detail focused. Attention to detail is crucial in business. When attention to detail is lacking – mistakes will be made. The devil is always in the details in my experience. Detail-focused people take pride in their work. They dot the “i’s”, cross the “t’s” and get the job done with quality.
6 They never stop learning. They pursue knowledge and skills. They stay relevant and competitive. The world is moving and they are moving with it.
These are my 6 top traits.
I believe that attitude is a key ingredient in making someone a high achiever. Skills are important – but from where I sit they are not in the top 6. Consequently, most people can become a High Achiever, but few are. The reason is that few people make the effort to become one. So, even when you face competition for the dream job, there are actually only a few, if any, true high achieving competitors.
The dream job is within your grasp, all it takes is for you to become a high achiever.
