Is it possible to build a career without higher education?

The phrase “higher education is a must” is present in almost every vacancy announcement. But does this mean that you can forget about a career without higher education? Indeed, in fact, often a year of work experience means more than five years of sitting in lectures.

The phrase “higher education is a must” is present in almost every vacancy announcement. But does this mean that you can forget about a career without higher education? Indeed, in fact, often a year of work experience means more than five years of sitting in lectures.Why require higher education?
Higher education in itself is not a guarantee of successful employment, experts say. There are often situations when a candidate’s professional experience, his qualifications play a greater role than his diploma in higher education.
However, if an employer will have to choose between two candidates with good work experience, and one of them will have a higher education, and the other will not, then he is most likely to prefer the first candidate.
The fact is that the presence of higher education implies the presence of special knowledge of the candidate, a broad outlook, the ability to analyze a large amount of information and draw adequate conclusions. In addition, training at the university forms the skills of independent work, time management and self-control.
True, there is another opinion to this effect. Eychary know how to "star" some graduates of prestigious universities, whose ambitions are not always supported by the necessary knowledge.
When higher education is required and when not
The requirements of the employer for the qualification of the employee are strictly individual and depend on the area in which the applicant will work and on the position. A number of professions implies the presence of higher education. Most of the banking professions require deep theoretical knowledge and practical skills from employees. Therefore, banks usually prefer candidates with higher education. Moreover, for some positions in the bank, the presence of higher education is mandatory.
A specialist without higher education cannot apply for vacancies in the areas of top management, economics, marketing, participate in the development of new technologies, etc., since a large amount of knowledge that will be needed for work can only be obtained at the university.
But not always higher education is a fundamental condition for employment, experts remind.
For example, the position of sales manager does not require extensive special knowledge, unless it is a very narrow segment. And often the employer expects from the candidate first of all the ability to effectively sell, communicate and motivate the client.
In order to work as a customs declarant, secondary specialized education is also sufficient, and sometimes only courses in this specialty. Experience and personal qualities play a key role in the decision to apply for such work. There was a case when a specialist with a secondary specialized education, but with all the necessary skills and impressive experience, was hired as a declarant in a large foreign company, and this “outplayed” several candidates with higher education.
Do I send a resume?
In some cases, without having a higher education, sending a resume to a vacancy, where higher education is indicated as a prerequisite (especially a narrow profile), is simply meaningless. And in others - absolutely acceptable.
The latter especially applies to people of creative professions, such as designers. The main criterion for evaluating these candidates is not education, but their work. If a specialist is talented, has good experience and a lot of creative ideas, then he can be of much greater benefit to an employer than a person who does not have similar qualities but has a higher education.
You can safely send your resume to the employer, if your practical experience meets the expectations of the employer. We had a candidate who did not have a higher education, but worked for a long time in a western company. When considering her candidacy for the position of an accountant, the fundamental criterion was her vast practical experience and excellent recommendation of the previous employer.
Not all applicants have a higher education. Nevertheless, they are masters of their work, they work efficiently and receive good wages. If a person is “in his place”, loves his profession and wants to develop in it, then whatever education he has, he always has a chance to be realized in his beloved business.скачать dle 12.1
