WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- If you've ever been at a job where you seem stuck while others are flying ahead, then it may not be your job performance holding you back.

CareerBuilder is out with a new survey Wednesday morning.  Employers were asked, if they had two-equally qualified candidates, which factors would make them more likely to consider one candidate over another?

Here are some factors that put a candidate over the top:

  • 27 percent picked the person with the better sense of humor
  • 26 percent cited community involvement
  • 22 percent said fashion sense
  • 21 percent said "the candidate whom I have more in common with"
  • 13 percent said physical fitness could be a factor
