Completing university education is thought by some to be the best way to get a good job. On the other hand, other people think that getting experience and developing soft skills is more important. Discuss both sides and give your opinion.

It is considered by some that being a university graduate is the key to securing a good
job
, while there are others who think that it is better to have
experience
and soft skills. In my opinion, I believe that having

is essential for academic jobs while soft skills and

are more useful in business. On the one hand, many think it is easier for most people to find a good

if they are university graduates with a good degree.
In other words

On the other hand
, having

and soft skills,
such
as leadership skills and other interpersonal skills, can

throw the balance in favour of the applicant, according to some. For many positions there are an overwhelming number of applicants and,
therefore
, it is often thought that having relevant
experience
in that line of
work
or having acquired useful soft skills that can be valuable to a company, can put one ahead of the game when applying for a
position
.
Finally
, in my opinion, whether needing high level
education
or skills and
experience
, depends on the
position
being applied for. Take
for example
law, medicine or teaching, it is impossible to be considered for a
position
without the required educational background.
In contrast
, in business, it would be more important for a candidate to have soft skills and
experience
in that line of business so they can step into a
position
without
further
training and be of immediate benefit to the company. In conclusion, getting a good
job
requires a relevant background either in
experience
or
education
depending on the type of
work
and field. People should make sure they attain the necessary skills or degrees before applying for a
job
in order to be sure of success.
