This question is the crux of the whole matter. It has been, for some time, a major point of contention among the employers, who say that a degree is still very important than skills in the hiring process.

However, it's no longer just a job seekers who disagree with this. Even some of the employers have started to question their motives in hiring.

As a result, they are making it mandatory for the job seekers to get a training to sharpen their skills before they are hired. And with online lessons and videos, it is no longer hard to get training.

The Importance of Skills in a Disrupted World

In a global economy where digital disruption is making itself a real threat to certain jobs, taking up skills to nurture interest and talent is important. In a meritocratic country such as Singapore, they are now increasingly viewed as important and complementary to degrees.

I believe that Cudy will be able to address the needs of the new generation of life-long learners. The constant need to learn and upgrade will be integral to career success - in an affordable, effective and sustainable way.
