PROVIDENCE, R.I. - eTradeWire -- Lynn Bentley, President of Knobull recommended, "Employers look for a variety of qualities and traits in employees. While you'll always want to display the hard skills that are relevant to your position, there are also soft skills that could help you get ahead, even if you're a little less qualified than the others."

One of the skills that impresses leaders the most is structured thinking. Proactive prep, or even a good class, can help a professional learn to communicate in a concise and compelling way. If a person honestly describes their skill level and they express that they are willing to learn, that's always impressive.

Listening is key. If you are anticipating answering a question a certain way, and a manager asks the question a degree differently, you risk embarrassment. Stay present and be a good listener. You should be able to work on your own with little to zero assistance, and still be productive and come up with results. During the work process, show how well you can manage yourself.

If you want to be successful, it's important to know how to answer questions and how to present yourself as an interesting contributor that displays the ability to target top priorities."
