One of the recruiters during the survey said, “New hires today are infinitely less skilled than they were a few years ago. Their responsibility levels have dropped alarmingly and their sincerity in solving and closing matters are sorely lacking.” Another recruiter believed that “The number of people with technical key skills is really declining. It is difficult to find proper personnel for a specific job.” The survey even reveals that because of the lack of required skills, 70% focus of the companies relates to providing technical skills training that includes computer programs, design skills, writing skills, machine operation, etc.
