Why are qualifications important?
There is a long drawn out debate regarding educational and professional qualifications vs work experience, as to which makes you more employable. Both contribute towards making you a good potential as an employee. However, if you are young and looking for your first job, then having recognized academic and/or professional qualifications are a prerequisite as they bring you to the notice of possible employers.

Despite your lack of work experience, your higher education proves that you have the ability to think, calculate and have the skills to solve problems professionally. It also shows your willingness and dedication towards achieving your goals. Studying and gaining qualifications changes you, it matures your outlook and trains you to think smart in various situations for viable solutions.
