What do employers look for in potential employees? That was the question that was posted recently on a career discussion forum online. Naturally, for each different position, the particular answers to that question would be different. But, there are some necessary skills that employers look for in all employees, whether the employee happens to be a network engineer or a fry cook. First, essential skills. Reading, writing, and arithmetic! Believe it or not, many high school graduates and some college grads do not read at an 8th-grade level and cannot do multiplication in their heads. Employers seek employees who can read well, write coherently, and calculate mathematics in a business environment like fractions and percentages. Add to that the new necessary skills of keyboarding skills, basic computer knowledge, and ability to use most computerized tools like fax machine, basic word processing program, and the essential skill sets needed for employment success. Second, personal skills, can a potential employee speak well? Can he answer questions of customers in a positive, informative manner? Can the prospect provide excellent customer service? While not everyone has an outgoing sales personality, successful employees can communicate in a non-confrontational, positive way with their coworkers, team members, subordinates, management, and customers. Being able to work well with others is a vital skill for success in all jobs. 

Third, job attainment, the job search is a process that requires a great deal of dedication and attention to be conducted successfully. It follows the old principle that many veteran programmers refer to Garbage In, Garbage Out. If you put the lousy effort in, you will receive horrible results. Employers seek employees who know how to present themselves positively and display enthusiasm and knowledge about the companies they approach. Not do candidates get evaluated on their skills and experience, but on how they approach the job search. Enthusiastic candidates with fewer skills have a chance of getting the job as dull candidates with better skills. Fourth, job survival, there's a hot topic in this period of layoffs. Who gets the ax and who doesn't is often a matter of numbers, but it is usually a matter of performance. Employees who have consistently demonstrated their worth, taken the initiative, and made themselves a valuable asset to the company have lower incidences of being downsized than employees who put forth mediocre or average effort in their jobs. Surviving within a company through layoffs or moving up the career ladder is a success skill that is learned and is consciously cultivated among successful professionals. 

Fifth, professional developement‚ as all high tech and engineering pros know‚ it's learning or burn in today's work environment. By acquiring new skills, applying new concepts, and updating established skills, it is necessary to succeed in today's workforce. The successful individual is continually attending seminars, taking classes, attaining training on new products or releases, and otherwise learning new skills that will keep them marketable in their careers. Successful people are lifelong learners. Employers are looking for people who have the training necessary to fulfill their needs. Sixth, career development, career development differs from professional development. Professional development is learning, while career development is a planning and goal-setting process. Successful individuals design a career plan with written goals for the short term and long term. They lay out the steps needed to move their careers from point A to point B within time frame C and plan how they will achieve those steps. Successful people have someone to whom they are accountable for their progress and watch their success in achieving their goals. Employers seek individuals who believe it or not wish to commit to the company for an extended period. Excellent career progression is a high selling point for candidates to prospective employers.
