Infographic: 8 important traits that trump a résumé

It’s time to look beyond a candidate’s résumé as you may be missing important attributes that aren’t on paper.

The primary tool used during a job search for the perfect candidate is a resume. While certainly helpful, it’s limiting. It gives employers an idea of a candidate’s past education and work experience, but doesn’t shed light on specific values and traits that may be instrumental to a position. This infographic compiled by TruYuu. It offers insight into valuable attributes a résumé can’t illustrate, such as:

  • People skills
  • Grace under pressure
  • Work ethic
  • Integrity and moral fiber
  • Charisma
  • Ambition
  • Leadership ability
  • A positive attitude
