What is it that impresses you the most?

If you are in the position of hiring a new, entry level, prospect designer for housewares and electronics, etc, what is it that would impress you or move to decide on hiring such person?

sketching thought process

…by the time i am interviewing someone designer-o-designer, i am already 99% sure that they have the skills/talent…what will move me to hire them is how effective they communicate, the enthusiasm they show for the work and personality…

Thank you for the answers
