Douglas’s Answer

I believe the personal attributes for success are pretty much the same for any field:

  • When you make a commitment - keep it
  • Show up on time
  • When given a new task, Do your homework (research) on the subject.
  • When asking for help, make sure you concisely describe the problem and the steps you have already taken to solve it.
  • When asked a question for which you have no answer - state that you do not know the answer.
  • Take full responsibility for mistakes you make.
  • Do not make the same mistake twice.
  • Be respectful, honest, truthful

You get the idea: Remember the Golden Rule

Adding to Douglas's answer....

When I hire folks, especially for entry level positions, I put more weight on "Attitude & Ability" over "Skills & School".
If you have the right attitude, you can always learn the skills.

Ability to communicate - on point, concise and clear - and with all levels (peers, managers and executives) - is very important.
