The opportunity to positively impact the bottom line and move up the career ladder are the two most important factors in the job search process, according to a recent poll conducted by ResumeEdge.com, a leading online resume writing service.
"More than 60 percent of job seekers look for positions where they will have the opportunity to contribute to company goals and advance in their careers," said Michael Fleischner, Managing Director of Marketing for ResumeEdge. "In other words, ambition plays an important role in finding the right match between job candidates and employers."
The survey also indicated that safety and security in a new job are important to only about 15 percent of respondents, and 23 percent evaluate new jobs based on whether the position is closely aligned with current skill sets.
Effectively articulating a potential job candidate's ambitions and qualifications on a resume can be challenging, especially for entry-level job seekers and career changers. The most powerful resumes clearly highlight career objectives and ambitions as a consistent theme. Job seekers need to consider that the resume they present has about 10 seconds to capture the attention of a busy hiring manager.
ResumeEdge.com offers a variety of free resources, including a new e-book of before and after sample resumes helping people in the job search process identify the key elements of a job-winning resume.
