If you are a keen learner and always willing to gain new knowledge, you possess an extraordinary skill: curiosity. All you need to do is demonstrate this skill in your job interview by asking the interviewer good and important work-related questions.
Learning agility is an excellent skill to develop. Employers will be interested in hearing about times when you have learned and applied something quickly or when your thinking had to change.
