Employers Look For A Good Employee But Also A Good Friend

Haven’t you ever wondered when you look at your resume if the section on hobbies is silly or even appropriate?  Well, if Northwestern University is correct, It is appropriate and a really good idea…if you like to do the same things. Turns out bosses are more interested in hiring someone who would be good to hang out with – than they are about finding the very best candidates.

Of course employers are looking for people who have the baseline of skills to effectively do the job. But, beyond that, employers really want people who they will bond with, who they will feel good around, or who will be their friend.

In addition, the research found that most employers rate having the right background and hobbies are also important assets for applicants at job interviews.

So you know if you know who is doing your interview, a little Facebook research on them may not be a bad idea.  You know these days they’ll be looking at you too.
