As one of the candidate for a position desired, we hope to impress our potential employer during the interview. We strive to do the research regarding the company such as mission, vision, company news and organizational structure. We have not ever worked in that company, which could possibly be a great workplace that we are looking for. In the interviews, the impression is vital for employers who is meeting with you. How do you introduce about yourself, how do you feel about your former employers, how do you describe your peers or supervisors in the past working experiences? Your feedback is to demonstrate your attitude and perspectives to everything around you in life. In BA industry, reputation/personal brand is relatively important within your network, which reflect the messages that you do deliver.

Emotional Intelligence becomes a top trend for our employees. Resilience is the major trait that most of the employer look at. We value the continuous development and career growth for our human assets. Positivity plays a key role how you deal with the challenges, which is also in relation to longevity and loyalty, in a company perspective. Throughout the communication, the candidates can share their experiences with potential employers about themselves in a positive way, instead of negative feelings e.g. anger, a sense of loss, aggressive, anxious, doubt etc.
