Education, Experience Can Be Keys to Keeping a Job, Survey Suggests
Posted Wednesday, Aug 31, 2011 by
We know that most employers seriously consider an applicant’s education and experience when hiring for a new job. But in a difficult economy such as this, education and experience can also be the most important factors in keeping the job you already have, according to the 2011 Job Survival Survey recently conducted by Harris Interactive.
The survey of nearly 1,200 adults had experience (24 percent) and education (15 percent) ranked highest for staying employed in a volatile job market. Other factors, ranked in order of importance, were working longer hours (9 percent), additional training and professional development (8 percent), networking and good relationships with co-workers (7 percent each), accepting less pay and a good work attitude (6 percent each), and interaction with the boss (3 percent).
