I'd say, "will be put to good use," and "will be of the most use."

I consider 1, 3, and 5 to be incorrect.

I think 8 is a little rude, as it implies that if they don't make good use of your talents, it's their fault!
I want to secure a position where my IT skills will be put to good use.

I also agree with Avangi on his/her (Sorry Avangi - I haven't looked at your profile) perception on the other sentences.

No sweat, Dave. I finally put up the male sign, but it was fun to have people guess.
Are you really a Berlioz fan??
I like the truth behind the quote. I know little of his writing a English is my native language but I worked in France when I was 18 so understand a little. I do enjoy music music form the classical/romantic period which he was a composer of. If I had written it in French, I think it would have been lost on most.
"I want to secure a position where my IT skills will be put to good use."

Hi,

Sorry, I don't understand the sentence.
I just find it in a resume sample.

Does it mean:
I want a position that requires IT skills
or
I want a position that I can use IT skills
?
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
It means that the person has very good IT skills (implied) and would like to have a job that requires using/testing those skills so that he/she can be recognised for the skills in IT they have.
Out of interest, why did you post that question when you didn't understand the question? Was there something about the structure you wanted to learn or simply the meaning?
uktous"I want to secure a position where my IT skills will be put to good use."
Sorry, I don't understand the sentence. The thing you're probably missing is the "my."
"MY IT skills will be used."

"My IT skills" = "the IT skills which I now possess"
