Companies are looking for people who have:

  • the ability to learn
  • goals which are aligned with the org/company’s mission & vision
  • great packaging of self
  • the ability to roll with changes
  • integrity
  • an entrepreneurial mindset
  • tried different things (they want variety)
  • energy
  • inquisitiveness
  • confidence
  • passion
  • and the drive for innovation.

Of course it differs in every company. The things I have emphasized are the top three answers. All of them says that the ‘soft skills’ (communication skills, packaging) matter more than technical knowledge.
