Hiring Skills Challenge

By Robert Half on March 19, 2019 at 5:09am


45% of resumes companies receive are from candidates who don't meet skills requirements.

76% of workers would apply for a job if they don't match all the qualifications.

How open employers are to hiring and training someone who lacks required skills:

18% Very open
68% Somewhat open
13% Not open at all

(Responses do not total 100 per cent due to rounding.)

58% of workers have been offered a job when they didn't meet all the requirements.
