A survey of 1,000 recruiters carried out by Reed found that employers are increasingly searching for candidates who display an attitude which suggests they would fit in with a company's existing workers and the organisation's ethos, rather than outstanding academics.
According to James Reed, chairman of Reed and co-author of Put Your Mindset to Work, employers believe a candidate with the right mindset is up to seven times more valuable than a normal worker.
He elaborated: "It is even more vital for a small business to choose someone with the right mindset when recruiting new talent than for a giant corporation. A single individual will have so much more impact on their prospects."
It comes after Peter Panayotou, founder and senior consultant at the Write Stuff, said that many job candidates are continuing to make small but significant errors on their CVs and applications, which are harming their chances of recruitment.
