Companies Hires College graduates as they are believed to be full with education with skills. It does not means that skilled people do not get hired they also get jobs but companies first prefers people with good degrees.

This is because college graduates are considered as competent and while their professional studies they got to learn many things and their course brush-up their qualities and skills in better ways. But skilled people without having any degrees face little problem in getting jobs because they do not have education of that job and he is not trained like the one who came from college.

Recently, a new study was conducted by University of California, Los Angeles, this study disputes this theory and finds that employers value students for the skills which they actually acquire in colleges and pay those more for that.

This study confirms by conducting interviews with the largest employers who said that they actually value skills and specific knowledge taught in colleges, and design recruitment processes to identify students with these relevant skills.

So friends just don’t only brush-up your skills but also carry knowledge which you taught in colleges. Do hard work and believe in yourself, then no one can stop you to reach at your goals.
