Importance of the degree

Research carried out by CV Library into the views of a sample group of UK Recruiters suggests that the value of a degree is less important now than in previous years.

Around 68% of the group believe that degrees are becoming only important for securing jobs that specify for them. These will careers in education, law, engineering and medicine amongst others.

When asked about their projections for ten years from now in 2025, 47% of the recruiters think that degrees will have less value than they currently do. Less than a fifth believe that obtaining a degree will increase in importance.
