Degree and Skill are two different terms, but, intensely both complement each other.
Degree gives you a platform to prove yourself but skill would help you to hold on given position. Though one can learn a lot of skills without a degree but skill that gets sharpened through a degree program acquire a better platform in real world.
For instance, one’s has marketing skills but doesn’t has a marketing degree. Without degree, he may go certainin his career path, but after going through the process to avail a degreewill make his vision more technical towards global trends and his skills will be more enhanced and improved.
Simultaneously choosing of educational field according one’s skill is another important fact to get desired success. Like, if somebody is good at dancing so why he or she will goahead in his career with physics or chemistry or maths or like those. So, it should be optional and open to everyone.
The knowledge economy does not pay for what you know, but for what you can do with what you know. A common man without basic formal education can do something amazing with his wonderful talents which can't be even possible for an educated person.
For example, an automobile engineer can explain 15 steps on paper how to change a tyre, but may have never done it physically. But, on other side, a common mechanic who may be not a degree holder but has more skill in this work than the degree holder.
Education is undoubtedly necessary and a person needs to have skill to achieve the degree.
But, only degrees are not making sense to achieve success. Hard work, perseverance, skill based training make one's work successful.
In an interview with The New York Times, Google’s vice-president of people operations, Laszlo Bock, had stated that they consider GPAs and test scores as a worthless criterion for hiring employee. For every job, the main thing Google looks for is general intellectual ability, “It’s the learning ability. It’s the ability to process on the fly. It’s the ability to pull together disparate bits of information.”
According to a report by Talent Sprint in 2014, only 27 per cent of the 7,50,00,000 fresh graduates would be employable by 2020. If we go by that number, then only 27 per cent of the country’s graduates are employable, which is a huge waste of resources. Only way to meet the demands of the job market is to be channelized the talent of these individuals in right way with right infrastructure. Institutional education sets your mind on a path for ‘how to learn’, while skills development training teaches you ‘how to apply’ what you have learnt.
Working toward enhancing your personality should become an automatic part of us.Applying mind and logic to come up with a better solution would require the right skill set.
