The Most Needed Skills of the Future are not Technical

The Most Needed Skills of the Future are not Technical

“Certainly, digital and technical skills remain in high demand, but companies can hire or retrain relatively quickly to close these gaps. However, a 2018 study by Bloomberg Next showed that four out of 10 companies believe that recently graduated employees lack the soft skills needed to be successful in the workplace, including emotional intelligence, complex reasoning, and negotiation and persuasion.”

Does Higher Education Still Prepare People for Jobs?

Does Higher Education Still Prepare People for Jobs?

“We often hear employers and business leaders lament the unfortunate gap between what students learn in college and what they are actually expected to know in order to be job-ready. This is particularly alarming in light of the large — and still growing — number of people graduating from university: above 40% of 25 to 34-year-olds in OECD countries, and nearly 50% of 25 to 34-year-olds in America.

Although there is a clear premium on education — recent reports from The Economist suggest that the ROI of a college degree has never been higher for young people — the value added from a college degree decreases as the number of graduates increases. This is why a college degree will boost earnings by over 20% in sub-saharan Africa (where degrees are relatively rare), but only 9% in Scandinavia (where 40% of adults have degrees). At the same time, as university qualifications become more commonplace, recruiters and employers will increasingly demand them, regardless of whether they are actually required for a specific job. So, while tertiary degrees may still lead to higher-paying jobs, the same employers handing out these jobs are hurting themselves — and young people — by limiting their candidate pool to college graduates. In an age of ubiquitous disruption and unpredictable job evolution, it is hard to argue that the knowledge acquisition historically associated with a university degree is still relevant.”
