Skills today are very diverse, and very versatile. Twenty years ago, there wasn’t a profession called surgical technology, nor was there anything to come out of a combination like biology and religious studies. In contrast, anything is possible in today’s term. If fact, unconventional combination and wide interest today are going to lead to better employability or entrepreneurship, if anything. That is provided, of course, that you are good at it.
One would have thought that this further specification and diversification of skills will mean more candidates in the job market to fill vacancies. However, the truth opposes that. As the economy recovers from the economic crises observed in the last century and the last decade, countries are putting more vacancies on offer. Unfortunately the output from education are not satisfying that demand. There is a growing skills gap in the market and this is as frustrating for the employers as it is for the job seekers.
