“Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today”- Malcolm X

In our lives, the importance of education is immense. When you are literate, you prepare yourself and your future generations to become more powerful in terms of intelligence. But when you lack education, not only you, but the people around you also suffer a lot. Being educated does not only mean mugging up the books and passing exams!

It means being able to distinguish between the right and wrong, it means being high on morals and values, it means passing on the wisdom to your next generation, etc.! When you say you are educated enough, you are actually severely wrong; a person can never be ‘educated enough’ in his entire life because the doors of earning and knowing things remain open throughout the journey of our entire life.

But some of us, still acquire education to get a job or to earn money; indeed it is a major aspect of being educated but along with it the other aspects must also be taken well care of by us! People possess fair opinions about acquiring higher education to get the job they desire for and it is not always deniable also. We will discuss more about the topic in this article.

Why do degrees matter so much to enter your choice of companies?

If we go by the job criteria and job reviews, in most of the cases, candidates who have higher degrees are always [referred over those who do not have them. Obviously, in the entry-level jobs, the employers do not put ‘experienced candidates’ for their job requirements, so they go for highly educated persons who are apt for the job.

One big reason why they prefer degree over anything else is that they think when a student goes for higher studies, he or she must have some zeal towards the particular fields chosen for the higher education purpose. And when they apply for the jobs, their abilities are well tested through several tests before they are hired for the job In this criteria, the ones who are plain graduate lack both the degree and the ‘specialist’ tag on their repertoire and thus are subjected to rejection most of the times.

And because this occurs in almost every industry, the reviews about employers doing the rounds depicts exactly the same thing. It doesn’t mean that people with lesser degrees do not possess the desired qualities and also there is nothing like they don’t get hired but for that ‘dream job’ you need to work a bit harder and acquire higher qualifications for the same. Therefore, the preference for higher education in a particular field is always high in our industrial society.

The final take

When we finish our studies and set ourselves ready for our professional goals, the feeling of nervousness always gropes us. But when we are high on confidence (and degrees), there is nothing that can stop us from achieving our targets. Everyone who fancies about doing jobs, do go through the company review of each of their dream, companies and thereby matches their eligibility criteria to land a job in that particular company.

And for that to be executed successfully, a person needs to be armed with both a higher and valuable degree and the qualities required for suiting the positions available on those companies. So, we must focus on being educated in a way that we can earn our living and become a good human being as well.
