Ielts writing task 2:

TOPIC: Nowadays, some employers think that formal academic qualifications are more important than life experience or personal qualities when they look for new employees. Why is it the case? Is it a positive or negative development?


There are several reasons for that opinion:

+ People with academic qualifications are believed to have more knowledge and useful skills for their jobs.

+ People with a university degree are believed to have broad vision for the company’s development.

+ Recruiters don’t need to waste time or money to retrain them.

I believe this is a negative development: life experience and personal qualities should all be considered:

+ People with rich life experience can offer new insights/ perspective that help solve problems

+ Good personal qualities are very important in teamwork.

+ People with good personal qualities can help promote the company’s business ethics.
