SKILL VS CERTIFICATE; Which One Will Give You An Edge? by abimijul1: 9:41am On Apr 15, 2020
SKILL VS CERTIFICATE; Which One Will Give You An Edge?

There is no point comparing certificate and skill because
they are supposed to complement each other.
The big question is, will your certificate be relevant without the relevant skill?
The answer is CAPITAL NO.

If certificate seems irrelevant without the right skills,
do you still want to wait after you graduate before
you acquire the necessary skill ?

Other countries are already preparing to meet up
with this workplace requirements,
China converted about 600 universities to Polytechnic
so as to reduce too much academic theory that doesn't guarantee jobs.
They want their polytechnics to focus on Engineering and
technology and technical courses.

The workplace in Nigeria is already aligning with this reality too.
Just check recent vacancies to see the requirement that are compulsory.
I have seen a lot of vacancies for Accountant and
they stated that the knowledge of Microsoft Excel is compulsory
while being a Chartered Accountant is just an added advantage.

Just google “Accounting vacancies in Nigeria ”, to confirm my claims.

No company is depending on the knowledge of academic theories to
employ graduates, your skill is what we stand you out.
The workplace is changing and you need to adapt fast.

P.S: I am not saying that your certificate is IRRELEVANT,
it is actually very RELEVANT but acquiring a SKILL
will give you edge in the labour market.
