A stat by MRI says that by the end of 2020, 50 percent of the workforce in the United States will be millennials. This prediction was made a few years ago and I can’t stress how accurate it has turned out to be. We are already seeing a major shift in the way both small and large corporations are hiring people. The value of traditional education is diminishing day after day, month after month and year after year.
Moreover, recruiters aren’t as shrewd and stubborn about the candidate’s ability to communicate as they were a few years before. According to a report by JobVite, “the need for strong conversational skills and enthusiasm decreased among recruiters by more than 20% across the board in 2018 as compared to 2017”. Even in 2020, this trend seems to be picking pace. You won’t need to an expert conversationalist to land your dream job in 2020.
