Job interviews and why spiritual qualities matter

You’re in a job interview. The interviewer says, “Tell me about yourself.” You might tell them about your educational background, your work experience, some of your accomplishments. If the interviewer then asks you about your qualities, you might say that you are hardworking, are a quick learner, get along easily with coworkers. Pretty standard stuff.

In the Bible we read that God created us in His image and likeness, and since God is Spirit, it stands to reason that our true nature is spiritual—like God, Spirit. Could that be of help to us in a job interview? It can be of great value, indeed. 

Now, you probably wouldn’t say, “I’m spiritual!” in most interviews. But knowing that your true identity and nature are spiritual is crucial. You reflect God, Spirit, which means you reflect wonderful spiritual qualities such as intelligence, poise, fearlessness, love, and many more. This does impact all the details surrounding the job search and the interview process.
