For many years in the world of employment, the battle has always been about which would land you a better job. Your experience or your education?
What do employers look at in potential candidates before giving them a job offer? What do I need to get promoted, education or experience?
To make things simpler, having both it’s better. Why settle for having one when you can have them both?
The two can help you advance your career or land you that dream job you’ve always wanted.
To expound on the matter, here’s a rundown of how having both would work in your favour rather than having either.
WHAT’S ON PAPER GETS YOU ON THE DOOR, BUT EXPERIENCE GETS YOU THE OFFER-
Employers, when considering hiring new employees, first look at your credentials. i.e. your education.
Where do you think they’ll look first?
It’s the first thing employers tend to check out when sorting applications. Whether it be work experience or real-life knowledge of a particular field, many companies prefer applicants who need the least supervision and have some relevant background in that area–even if the applicant doesn’t have formal training for a job title!
GAINING THE ABILITY TO DEMAND YOUR SALARY-
Your school’s reputation could very well already give you an initial price tag but having the work experience and sets of skills and training on the job you are trying to land.
This may give you some leverage in salary negotiation.
Experience alone cannot guarantee a higher paycheck as some jobs need educational qualifications.
OPENING DOORS FOR CAREER ADVANCEMENT-
Some jobs need both qualification and experience before you can move forward to it.
It is not enough to have the skills; you also need to earn a certain number of hours in training and certification.
Having both would give you the edge in consideration for promotion or landing a new job elsewhere.
So now the question lies, how do you get both? Even if you are already in a job, you can still enrol in various courses with 3CIR to help you get the certificate or diploma course you need.
The good thing about the institute is that we offer e-courses that allow studying at your own pace and time.
Now for the experience, you can always do internships, even unpaid, to help you understand better the job you wish to pursue.
You can also request your superior to assign you special projects that will allow you to gain the required skills necessary for your career advancement.
What are you waiting for? Get yourself a better chance of a better job by getting both education and experience, and 3CIR is here to help.
