What are your greatest strengths?
Prior to any interview, you should have a list mentally prepared of your greatest strengths. You should also have, a specific example or two, which illustrates each strength, an example chosen from your most recent and most impressive achievements.
Then, once you uncover your interviewer’s greatest wants and needs, you can choose those achievements from your list that best match up.
As a general guideline, the 10 most desirable traits that all employers love to see in their employees are:
A proven track record as an achiever…especially if your achievements match up with the employer’s greatest wants and needs.
Honesty…integrity…a decent human being.
Good fit with corporate culture…someone to feel comfortable with…a team player who meshes well with interviewer’s team.
Likeability…positive attitude…sense of humor.

Definiteness of purpose…clear goals.
