【職場秘笈】研究：近半企業降低職位的學位要求，更看重技能 Research: Nearly half of companies lower degree requirements for positions, placing more emphasis on skills
Recently, hiring managers are paying less attention to your educational background or whether you have a four-year degree. According to a new study by ZipRecruiter, nearly 45% of companies this year have lowered degree requirements for certain positions. Instead, businesses are valuing skills over educational background, with 42% of companies now explicitly using skills-related metrics to find candidates.
According to ZipRecruiter, the three skills that employers are most concerned about and are in the highest demand are:
- Time Management
- Critical Thinking
Professionalism vary depending on the work environment. Regardless, it is very important for employers to find employees who can effectively communicate with clients and colleagues.
Current workplaces consist of people from different generations, and there are variations in professional standards across these generations, leading to friction. It is said that the younger generation seems to have not acquired these important soft skills in schools or universities. Now, companies are trying to correct this trend by investing in soft skills training for their employees and hiring candidates who can enhance productivity and team performance.
When job hunting, ensure that your CV emphasizes these skills and provides specific examples of how you've applied them.
