A recent article in Forbes magazine identified a key trait that successful new employees possess that has no correlation to grade point averages (GPAs), professional credentials and certifications. This trait is so significant that Google no longer ever asks where an employee went to school, what they studied or what their GPA was. Why? What they found is it makes no difference in being a productive, hardworking, contributing team member.
However, Google did identify a key trait that trumps absolutely everything else. This key trait is possessed by all individuals, regardless of race, creed, color, national origin, sex, religion. This trait is easy to identify and shows very clearly in any job interview.
