Why You Need To Be Qualified For Certain Jobs

Young people today are being faced with the dilemma of finding work and this is proving to be more difficult as each year goes on. When searching for work, many of us are frustrated with the fact that we need experience to gain experience or are told that a degree just isn’t enough as everyone has a degree. Some jobs require experience alone whereas others require a degree or both, and it can be difficult to know where you stand. While for some jobs qualifications only provide you with a foundation for your working practice, in other industries they are vital in ensuring you are providing a high quality service and have the knowledge to prove that.

Some may argue that education and qualifications change you as a person and are vital for certain jobs. Education can give you a far more in-depth understanding of a subject than if you simply ‘learn on the job’ and pick things up as you go along. Experience can tell you that a certain way of doing something does not work, whereas education will ensure you have the theoretical knowledge and analytical skill to tell you why something doesn’t work. For this reason you can argue that those who have undertaken the relevant qualifications for their job learn faster and are more in-depth as a result.

When it comes to anything that involves cosmetic alteration, for example, qualifications are vital and you should never accept a treatment from a practitioner that does not display evidence of completing the various degrees and courses needed to undertake a procedure safely. EF Medispa, for example, pride themselves on their ethos of quality and innovation, ensuring that they are always keeping up with the latest technology and trends and have highly qualified members of staff that all certified to do their job. Take care when looking to receive cosmetic treatment, as while a procedure may seem cheaper, if done incorrectly it can cost you more when it comes to correcting a resulting problem or could even cost you your health (which is priceless)!

Alternatively others have the view that while it is all well and good to have a piece of paperwork that shows you have spent 4 years at university, it cannot detract from the fact that you may have never set foot into an office before. The huge debt and lack of practical, hands on experiences that so many university students have is a real turn off for many people deciding on whether or not they should be going to university or not. It is also well known that many companies do not like to hire those fresh out of university before they have proven experience of working elsewhere, be it as an intern or apprentice, for example. This in many cases means that people work for a very low wage or for free, only adding to the debts accumulated at university. When it comes to practical skills such as building, for example, hands on experience will always trump a degree or a qualification as it requires the ability to think on your feet and apply yourself in a different way to an accountant, for example.

Ultimately the ideal situation to be in would be to have a balance between theoretical knowledge and practical experience. It is important to research what the employers of the area you wish to specify in require in order to get the best indication of which route to take when it comes to getting an education or gaining experience.
