Skills for Candidates for Job Positions
Carachipampa Christian School
The picture chosen is a small visual model of the survey given in the book When Helping Hurts that has images on a pie chart that shows what people think the most important quality in applying for a job. As the image shows, having a positive attitude is the highest percentage which I don’t totally agree with. Personally I think positive attitude should be ranked lower and have a strong work ethic first. According to Naceweb (Smith, 2012), which made a survey, were the highest ranked quality is “Ability to work in a Team Structure.” I agree with Nacewebs results that working in a team should be in a high position, but not the highest either, instead I agree with Lisa L. (2010) statement that says “If a person lacks willingness you will always run into problems. If a person can demonstrate through a behavioral interview that they have demonstrated willingness in their previous jobs you know you have someone who is flexible and willing to accept change and try new things” Willingness should be first if I were to chose between Nacewebs survey or Lisa L.´s opinion based on her working experience. Colossians 3: 23-24 says “Whatever you do work at it with all your heart as working for the Lord. Whatever you do work at it with all your heart as working for the Lord not for men since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” This verse relates perfectly with the big picture and When Helpling Hurts statistics because one has to work passionate in what he does, but most importantly work for the Lord. Based on all the facts given in all the sources I´ve learned a few things and tips I can use for the future that will help me in positive ways when I look for a job.
