- Did you know that multiple research studies show that likeability is equally, if not more, important than competence when managers make hiring decisions? Likeability also helps you succeed once you land the job. People perceived as likable get more assistance, obtain more pay raises, receive more information, and mistakes tend to be more easily forgiven. This is the likeability effect. And it's fantastic news if you're looking to boost your career and secure a new role. What is likeability anyway? Many believe it's an innate quality based on being naturally outgoing and charismatic, when at its most basic, likeability is just being easy to be around. That's it. Likeability isn't a trait of the lucky few, but instead can be honed. So even if you're an introvert or never seem to know what to say in social situations, this course will show you how to tap into your natural qualities to enhance your career success. And as a recruiter and licensed psychologist I can tell you that it's more often the relationships rather than your resume that secure an offer.
