“We have all of the ingredients necessary for anyone to become an accomplished businessperson,” said Christopher R., Global Resources’ Director of Operations. “There are certain traits we look for when hiring that are necessary for individuals to thrive in our environment.” Here are three that Christopher actively seeks during the interview process:

• Motivation: “Drive is everything,” said Christopher. “Individuals who are self-motivated and can push themselves to complete their goals fare well in our office. I try to understand what motivates someone because that factor is often what inspires him or her to give a little extra and go a little further.”

• Tenacity: “Mastering new skills requires a certain determination, as it doesn’t happen overnight,” he noted. “To excel, someone has to be patient and keep trying.”

• Ambition: “It’s not enough to reach one goal,” Christopher explained. “We want people who surpass a challenge and ask what’s next.”
