If CareerBuilder’s latest survey is any indication, having earned a high school diploma and not continuing with one’s education is getting phased out.
For instance, employers are looking for college educated candidates to fill high level positions but it turns out they’re also seeking to fill degree holders with lower level roles as well.
As per the survey, 32 percent of hiring managers indicated they’re extending hires to employees who possess their college degrees more than in the past for jobs previously held by high school diploma holders.
According to the release, Brent Rasmussen, president of CareerBuilder North America, indicated, “Employers are filling more entry level functions with educated labor. While some of this may be attributed to a competitive job market that lends itself to college grads taking lower skill jobs, it also speaks to companies raising performance expectations for roles within their firms to enhance overall productivity, product quality and sales.”
