Q1 Client

‘Degree or not Degree’ – that is the question

So last week’s #Questionoftheweek for our clients was learning all about their perceptions of CV’s and whether or not ones that included a completed degree were deemed more favourable than those without.

We asked, “Does a CV with a degree instantly become more appealing than a CV without a degree?”

We wanted to understand the perception a decision maker has when it comes to reviewing CV’s for a generic role where education is not specified in the criteria.

We thought the results may prove interesting and it certainly reads a close call but ultimately, the majority decided a CV with a degree would give that particular individual an advantage over someone who does not.

42% – Yes

33% – No

25% – Depends on the position

Let us know what you would say?

Thanks,
