Hiring for administrative and commercial jobs has increased across North America. And, 28 percent of respondents in an Express Employment Professionals survey stated that they will be adding administrative and clerical staff throughout 2012.
According to 99 percent of survey participants, an applicant's attitude was the deciding factor above everything else when they made hiring decisions. Along with attitude, the applicant's core values were also key to finding a good fit, particularly for small businesses.
Finding the right fit is also important to employees. Job seekers, especially those looking for administrative positions at small-to-medium sized companies, can seek out businesses whose principles and values are similar to their own. This can result in a smooth job interview and an potentially strong match between employee and employer.
While a good attitude and the right fit are important to most employers, employees with the right combination of skills, training and experience are just as essential. Those interested in training for an administrative career can enroll in the Business Administration/E-Commerce Management program at Reeves College.
