Grooming is important - all aspects of it. It reflects attention to detail and care. I look at their attitude - it’s very important. Attitude is often a differentiator, reflecting the values she/he holds.
Regarding speech, I look at articulation and the ability to convey an idea or a thought process. Brevity, being to the point and avoiding long-winded perambulatory responses are important.
The curriculum vitae should not be more than two-three pages long. The focus should be on what they did, not on the company they worked for.
Punctuality is critical. It reflects attitude. Regarding education, quality institutions of learning make a difference.
The family background is very important. This does not mean wealth or means… but what values she/he learnt, family dynamics - large/small…. what parents and siblings do... all add up.
Other factors I look for are the applicant’s hunger for the job….whether she/he is a job-hopper, career learnings.

Other qualities I look for are family background, grooming, attitude and the overall presentation of oneself, including existing job knowledge.
Grooming….This is essential and in some ways reflects the mind of the individual. Well-ironed and clean clothes show attention to detail and a methodical, organised work approach. On the other hand…. an individual who is not well-groomed may reflect
casualness on the job, lack of detail, etc.
