How Personable You Are

“Thank you for speaking with me yesterday. From our brief conversation, I really appreciate your communication and how personable you are. If you are still interested in the position, I would love to offer an in-person interview with our Operations Manager, Brandon —–, who works with me on the hiring process and makes the ultimate hiring decision. A good time for him would be Thursday, December 27th at 3pm in the Santa Monica office. Is that a convenient time for you? If you are out of town for the holidays, we could also set a date after the new year. Let me know what works best, and of course, any questions you may have.

Thank you,

Sheila —“

Personality.  It says a lot about a person.  They either have it or they don’t.  But it will surprised and astound you how far your personality can carry you.  Employers want employers want candidates who fit with their company culture.  Employers want candidates that are easy to get along and work with.  And personality will tell them that.  Even over the phone.  When you’re personable —easy to talk to likeablefriendlyapproachableeasy going — whatever you want to call it, it radiates and people are drawn to it.  Yes, that includes someone who could be your boss.   Don’t rigid.  The interview, no matter form it’s conducted in, the opportunity to market yourself, and includes letting your personality shine through?  Are you personable to land the job?
