How important is a master's degree for employers?
Statistics show that the percentage of employed graduates with a master's degree is an order higher than the percentage of employed bachelors.
In the fact, many HR specialists believe that only a higher education is important for an employer. When publishing a vacancy, few people indicate: “Masters are required” or “Bachelors are required”.
A master's degree can sometimes play a role in selecting one of two potential candidates.
However, there are areas where the unconditional indicator of suitability will rather not be a line about higher education, but experience. This applies, for example, to the IT sector, where the applicant will most likely be asked to do a test task.
In general, it is believed that the lack of a master's degree can become an obstacle not to employment as such, but to further advancement in the career ladder. At some point, it may turn out that the employee simply does not have enough qualifications.
Those who want to work abroad simply need a master's degree: it is extremely difficult to get a good job there with a only Belarusian bachelor's degree.
