 Employers often ask themselves, “Can this job applicant make or save money for my company?” Most employers are looking for the same things. “Can I work with this person (for 8 hours)?”” Can this person represent me to other people?”


In the interview what kind of person will YOU try to hire? 




 APPEARANCE                  - Does his/her appearance display pride in himself and his ability to do the job?


 Dress                                Is he/she dressed at least one step above what one would wear on the job?                                           


 Grooming & Hygiene           -  Does he/she project a clean neat image from head to toe?


 Manner                             -  Is his/her behaviour polite, friendly, confident?


 Paperwork                       Is his/her application and/or resume neat and complete?


 DEPENDABILITY                - Can he/she be counted on to do the job?


 Attendance                       - Will he/she be at work regularly?
