  • Resilience - Are you persistent in picking up and reaching your goal in the face of adversity?
  • Drive and Hunger - Are you internally motivated to be the best?
  • Adaptable - How do you take on learning feedback and implement it?
  • Decision Making - Are you able to prioritize effectively and back your decisions?
  • Influencer - Can you persuade others and negotiate to reach a positive result?
  • Languages - Not a necessity, however having the ability able to speak French, German or Dutch is a definite plus!
