We pay a lot of money for a good education in hopes that it will lead to a good job in the future.But as it turns out, most hiring managers donât really care about where you went to school or the degree you earned.According to Christine Romans, CNN chief business correspondent and author of Smart is the New Rich: Money Guide for Millennials, skills such as integrity and professionalism are among the qualities that employers value the most.âThese used to be called âsoft skills,â but workplace experts and human resources managers say there is nothing soft about them at all,â Romans writes in her new book. âThe hard truth is that companies need talent that can collaborate and lead. These skills are critical, and you canât get a degree in them.âRomans cites a survey conducted by staffing firm Express Employment Professionals, which has a total of 700 franchises in the U.S., Canada, and South Africa. The survey asked employers to rank eight top qualities of job applicants.Here is the ranking, from most to least important:1. Attitude2. Work ethic/integrity3. Credible work history4. Cultural fit5. Specific skills6. Job experience7. References8. EducationRomans quotes the staffing firmâs CEO, Bob Funk, saying that applicants shouldnât just rely on their rÃ©sumÃ© when it comes to getting hired.âEven the best education is no substitute for a good attitude,â Funk says. âOf course education is important, but while employers can teach their employees new skills, itâs much more difficult to teach things like integrity, work ethic, or attitude.â
