Character and Competence, Equally Important for Career Success

Competence is measurable while character is a bit abstract and the best way to know a person’s true character is to see how he responds in a crisis that is when problems arise true characters are revealed.

Character is simply defined as who we are when no-one is watching. Reliability and integrity in the working place whether or not the boss is around shows a person’s job disposition.
A competent worker on the other hand is someone who has the capability, experience and know-how in his job nature. He can organize and can elevate work performance according to the company’s standards. His skills and efficiency can carry out the specific tasks assigned to him. In simpler term, a worker is competent if he has the ability to a job properly.
