One of the most common questions interviewers ask is, “What makes you stand out among your peers They possibly interviewing several candidates, and they want to hire someone for their company that will bring something special to the table.
This question is basically inviting you to prove to them that you meet these desires.
Take responsibility for your own career instead of just voyaging and going with the flow. Too many of us believe we can still rely on our employers to manage our career growth for us. If you demonstrate to your organisation that you’re one of the few who recognize this is no longer the case in the 21st century, you’ll be sure to stand out.
One way to stay ahead and to take charge of your own career development and learning.
When we’re trying to stand out amongst our peers, the desire is to build our own achievements or abilities or to do something not completely honest in order to gain the profit over one of our organisation’s rivals.
When we resist this desire by respecting the necessary and liberating nature of complete honesty, that’s when we really shine.
Be seen as a collaborative colleague, one that is always up for helping other people around you. Do this only when you can, you can’t be constantly distracted from your main tasks – but when you do have some time freed up, remember to help out to stand out.
Deal with Mistakes
Being an excellent colleague and employee doesn’t mean that nothing will ever go wrong with a project you’re working on or with a work relationship. If a problem occurs or you make a mistake, address it directly instead of burying your head in the sand.
You must do what you say you’re going to do. When people believe that you’re reliable and honest and they see that in everything you do and say, you’ll begin to stand out in their minds as a shining example of trustworthiness.
To wrap up, I recommend stay positive when answering. Talk about the advantages you would provide, not the disadvantages your competition would bring.
That’s all for now.
