What do I look for when I hire people for elizabethbanks.com? Personality!
Life is too short to deal with bad chemistry.
I also want someone to take responsibility when things go wrong. I find that to be a true test of people.
Bad situations are learning experiences, and nothing upsets me more than blame being thrown around.
I would just prefer it if you say, “It happened. I’m sorry, and let’s move on.”
I love professionalism — in a housekeeper, in a janitor, in a waiter, in a barista. And I’ve done a lot of those jobs!
