People always talk about the traits and qualities you need to help you find a job, but what about the other way around? Here are three traits to avoid.
A Bad Attitude-
Having a bad attitude makes you unemployable because people won’t want to work with around you. If you have a bad attitude and your coworkers, boss, and other clients don’t like spending time with you, they’re not going to be very motivated to keep you around. Having a bad attitude could include being grumpy, lazy, or entitled. If you feel like you’re acting this way at all, it would do you well to try to change your attitude.
Lying, Stealing, or Cheating-
Lying, stealing, and cheating are all pretty unforgivable offenses in the workplace. The principal reason being that you won’t be trustworthy in the eyes of your superiors. How are they supposed to trust you with important tasks if it’s proven that you don’t valuable company time, property, or values?
If you’ve ever wronged a boss or superior, you may find yourself having a hard time getting a new job if you list them as a reference. If you have poor references, dig for the references who can speak to another side of your character (and act accordingly) to increase your chance of being employed by another company in the future.
