How involved are you in your community? Do you think volunteering isn’t worth it? Think again. It’s one of the many things that show employers you care about people and your community.  PR NEWSWIRE put together this list of things that could get you the job you’ve been looking for.

ARE YOU BILINGUAL?

34% of hiring managers say that it definitely will up your chances for getting hired. Spanish is the best second language to learn at this point

DO YOU HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR?

If you have a great sense of humor, it may up your chances of getting the job. Perhaps you are making people feel more comfortable.

DRESS FOR SUCCESS

Yes. Yes. Yes. What you wear says a lot about you. Be better dressed than all the others? If you’re not the snappiest dresser, realize you need to dress for success.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE IN COMMON WITH THE INTERVIEWER?

I guess it makes sense. If you relate to the person or people conducting the interview, you’ll have a better chance at getting the job. If you see something in the office that means something to you, you can mention it. A little small talk doesn’t hurt. The whole interview doesn’t have to be about working.
