  2. Willingness to learn- Even if he/she knows literally everything regarding mankind, then too must try learning what is being explained by their heads. Be it work or any thing else, his/ her actions should speak for the work.
  3. Communication- Should possess good communication and english skills, both written and spoken. Should be confident in his actions.
  4. Self-motivation- There are many times in life when you start falling apart due to load of work and personal life, he is expected to be a mature person and be responsible for his actions. And stay motivated and self driven in hard times.
  5. Culture fit-The exact meaning of “culture fit” changes with every organization. But it’s not as simple as being about who you want to have lunch or an after-work drink with; it’s much more about who understands and embraces the workplace and mode of work, from the open-space layout to the dress code. Culture fit might even change among different teams. It’s a good idea to sit down with your team members and discuss about what constitutes culture fit for your team and narrow it down to specific traits or values.
