Taipei, May 24 (CNA) More than 80 percent of workers in Taiwan think that an advanced degree does not guarantee a good job, the online job bank yes123 said Tuesday, citing a poll it conducted recently.
According to the poll, 83.7 percent of workers think it not that easy for people with master’s degrees or higher to land a good job since more and more people are earning such qualifications in Taiwan, the job bank said.
This is an indication that the value of postgraduate degrees is depreciating in the local job market, the job bank said.
The poll showed that only 20.6 percent of workers with undergraduate degrees are interested in pursuing postgraduate studies as a means of securing a better job.
Among workers with master’s degrees, only 12.5 percent plan to pursue a doctorate as means of increasing their competitiveness in the job market, according to the poll. [FULL STORY]
