    Does experience counts more or educational qualification?

    Are there strict HR rules for selecting a candidate on the basis of educational qualifications or on the basis of experience? A person if holds a good experience but not equal lent educational qualifications then will he be eligible for a good post?

    Hi friend

    I think both experience and educational qualifications matter equally but it depends on the post for which the candidate is being selected that whether the HR will select the candidate with better educational qualifications or more experience or both..

    Certain posts which require higher educational qualifications will not be apropriate for you as you dont fulfill the required criteria for such posts..Then there are some posts where experience matters more than educational qualifications..So basically it varies from post to post ..Certain works require highly experienced people without which the company would not be able to work efficiently but at the same time they may or may not require you to be highly qualified as well..

    Certain works are so complicated while there are some in which even a single error cant be toloerated so these will require highly experienced invidividuals who are experts and can even do it while sleeping..

    I hope you understood my point..Dont worry and try your best..Good luck

    Possessing a good educational qualification is a better option. Experience too counts but educational qualification is more important.
    For a good job or say a high profile job no employer will want an uneducated candidate to fill the post. For holding a good job you need to have an educational qualification equivalent to the job profile and only after that experience comes.
    Experience might be applicable with low profile jobs and a person might get employed for possessing experience for such jobs but if you want a good job dont depend on experience.
    In india if you want to get a good job your minimum educational qualification should be 'graduate in any discipline'.

    Hey..
    First of all both educational qualifictaion and work experience are importat to obtain a job. A good post in a company invloves a balance of both educational qualification and work experience. Before selecting a candidate for a good post the Human resource department decides the minimum educational qualification required and also gives weigthage to work experience.
    The number of years of work experience required also change from post to post. There are certain posts in which freshers are not taken while there are others in which there is no need of work experience. In ideal cases, it is advised to go in for your graduation and then work for minimum of two years and then go for your post graduation. One gets an added advantage of having a work experience when applying for post graduation. Work experience helps you a learn a lot and prepares you for your post graduation and also the job after Post graduation.
    Hence educational qualification is set up as a benchmark and what distinguishes one candidate from the other is work experience. Hence a healthy mixture of both is required. All the best.. Thanks.

    Hello Sir,

    Both the educational qualification and experiences depends upon the Job interview, But it also depends upon the Post and Position of your Job..
    For the Freshers the educational qualification is only the requirement, But if you are in old position of your company, the experience depends upon your Post..


    Thanking You...!!!!

    Both experience and good qualification is interconnected with each other. If you have good qualification and good experience then you can get the best suitable job for you. According to me both the educational qualification and the experience are vital ingredient for getting a good job. If you don't have certain qualification but you have experience then you won't be considered if there is another person who has got the qualification for the same post. But if in the same time if there is no other person who has qualification then you may be considered for the job.

    But I may also say that it may depend upon the company to company and how the recruiter things so. If the recruiter things that you have the required experience which is more than enough for the job then he may select you for that job.

    Dear Aspirant,

    The required qualification is the basic requirement & criteria to get good job.Without qualification it is not possible to get good job.The experience is achieved or gained when the candidates get job on the basis of qualification.

    A candidate can get good job without experience.For example one candidate appears for UPSC exam on the basis of graduation in any stream & if he/she succeeds,he may me an sub-divisional officer or sub collector.Like wise many B.Tech holder gets good placement while studying only.

    Of course experience helps in getting good job provided the concerned candidates have sufficient qualification.

    Thanks & good luck.

    That depends upon the kind of work.

    Client will give instructions for this to the company.

    Accordingly the company will hire the candidates.

    If that project is highly risky, obviously the company will recruit the experienced candidates for that project.

    If it is a small job which is of less risky, then freshers will be taken.

    Obviously experienced candidates will be filtered on the basis of their highest academic qualification.

    I think each expertise academic|and academic} qualifications matter equally however it depends on the post that the candidate is being elite that whether or not the 60 minutes can choose the candidate with higher educational qualifications or additional expertise or each..

    sure posts that need higher instructional qualifications won't be applicable for you as you don't fulfill the desired criteria for such posts..Then there area unit some posts wherever expertise matters over instructional qualifications..So primarily it varies from post to post ..Certain works need extremely full-fledged individuals while not that the corporate wouldn't be ready to work with efficiency however at a similar time they'll or might not need you to be extremely qualified in addition..

    sure works area unit thus difficult whereas there area unit thus me within which even one error cant be tolerated so these would require extremely full-fledged people UN agency area unit specialists and may even be intimate whereas sleeping..
    Possessing a decent instructional qualification may be a higher choice. expertise too counts however instructional qualification is additional necessary.
    For a decent job or say a position job no leader can need associate uneducated candidate to fill the post. For holding a decent job you would like to own an academic qualification corresponding to the task profile and solely then expertise comes.
    expertise may be applicable with low profile jobs and someone may get used for possessing expertise for such jobs however if you wish a decent job don't rely on expertise.
    In Asian country if you wish to urge a decent job your minimum instructional qualification ought to be 'graduate in any discipline'.
    First of all each instructional qualifictaion and work expertise area unit importat to get employment. a decent post during a company invloves a balance of each instructional qualification and work expertise. Before choosing a candidate for a decent post the Human resource department decides the minimum instructional qualification needed and additionally provides weigthage to figure expertise.
    the amount of years of labor expertise needed additionally modification from post to post. There area unit sure posts within which freshers don't seem to be taken whereas there area unit others within which there's no would like of labor expertise. In ideal cases, it's suggested to travel sure your graduation then work for minimum of 2 years then opt for your post graduation. One gets one more advantage of getting a piece expertise once applying for post graduation. Work expertise helps you a learn plenty and prepares you for your post graduation and additionally the task once Post graduation.
    thus instructional qualification is about up as a benchmark and what distinguishes one candidate from the opposite is figure expertise. thus a healthy mixture of each is needed.

    Re: Does experience counts more or educational qualification?

    Education qualification is key factor when you are fresher and at initial stage of your career. When you becomes experienced candidate, then the experience given more preference than educational qualification. Now as per HR, it depends upon the type of post, though every post has responsbility attached to it but when we say about highly responsible post, then Experienced candidate are always selected. So fresher are selected for a post of less responsibility, but soon as they gain experience, with position their responsibility also increases. So try to gain work experience.

    Re: Does experience counts more or educational qualification?

    In my opinion experience is more important as compare to your academics because it will gives you an idea to work in an organization.Experience is giving us the practical knowledge about the work conditions to work where as theory is just a bookish information.

    It also depends on the job profile as well as on the company works but in most cases the experinces person get preference as compare to highly educated freshers.

    It is better to gain exp in a particular field rather then study..

    both experience and educational qualification make a good combination work experience in very good company can cover up any irregularities in education lapses like low percentages etc,education is primary thing but work experience is very much useful.. company needs you to develop the organisation better and not on personal .. so even if ur education academics are not good you can do it

    B.tech Fresher-3.2lacs per annum
    B.tech (EXp:2years)-5 to 6.45 lacs per annum
    M.tech Fresher-3.4 lacs per annum

    Hi,
    Ya actually educational qualification and work experience stand hand in hand.But work experience takes the premier position in most of the cases,
    because, it would have moulded the employee in various practical experiences.So, according to my opinion, even if the educational qualification is not in a
    creamy layer,..experience can make you win

    Re: Does experience counts more or educational qualification?

    Hello Friend,
    if its your first job then the HR or the selector will focus on your education because at that time you may not have any corporate experience to show but if you have done internship some where then you can produce that experience certificate and that will be value added for you.
    but if you have worked previously with any company and you have experience of more than 2 years then thy wont check for your Qualification percentage rather they will ask you questions regarding previous project ,what was the challenge there and how did you handle that.
    on the basis of your experience only you will be get selected there after.
    Thank You.

    hello friendsWorking experience and educational qualifications have it's own special things but if you are a fresher then educational qualifications are important while you have worked then obviously experience will count more then education.It is dependable at conditions and terms.You should analyze certain posts which require higher educational qualifications then you will not be able to it .because you dont fulfill the required criteria for such posts.Top jobs require both qualities education and experience.But there are some posts where experience matters more than educational qualifications.generally it varies from post to post so always read full requrements for concerned job Certain works require highly experienced candidates.It is varies company to company.all the best
