Discuss both sides and give your opinion

We stand in awe when we found out that our security guard was a licensed engineer but he never got a job in the field due to lack of experience in Engineering. Today, it is often said that getting a job immediately is better in order to acquire all experience, while other still believe that getting a degree will assure one’s success in finding a good paying job.  In my opinion, having both experience in a field of industry and a diploma will assure your faith in getting a decent job.

Today, applying for a service crew position requires a college level.  This shows that the requirements set by the employers are getting higher hence, getting a degree will always have an advantage compare to others. My experience before in the call center industry shows that educational background matter. When we were in the final interview to be a supervisor, they based it on performance and tenure. Hence, the manager decided to choose the candidate based on our academic credential. Therefore, academic achievement is important.

Jumping to work immediately in order to get experience is considered as a leap of faith. For some workers who were able to acquire a job and gain experience can be considered as lucky.  Most people who do this have already portfolio or some prior mentorship experience before they even apply for a job. During my younger years, going to a tech shop and ask for some electronic kit and do computer troubleshooting are considered to be my hobby. One day, I was hired by a local shop because I am already accustomed to the process that they feel I should be paid. Hence, going to career ladder in order to get experience is not for everyone and prior experience should be acquired.

To summarize, having a good academic background will give applicants a clear path in getting a job and experience will fast forward to your goal. Hence, both of these two essential factors works hand in hand, and trying to focus on one area alone is futile.
