Graduates need to improve their skills, survey says

Jan 13, 2014
From wire reports, VILNIUS

A survey conducted by the Kaunas Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Crafts has revealed that companies feel there is a lack of sufficient numbers of professional school graduates and that there was a need to train more of them, reports ELTA.

While conducting the survey, the Kaunas Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Crafts tried to find out the professions in demand and the most preferable schools.

The main reason for the respondents being dissatisfied with the graduates was the lack of the practical skills they hold. Seventy-three percent of the businesspeople said that this was the main lack with the graduates. Thirty-eight percent of the respondents said that the lack of the motivation and the inability to adjust to the work were the biggest issues.

Twenty-four percent of the respondents said that the problem was their irresponsible attitude and absenteeism, while 11 percent were dissatisfied with the level of their theoretical knowledge. However, 27 percent of the respondents said that the problems were a lack of knowledge of foreign languages as well as the necessary high salary as a measure for raising motivation.

According to the Kaunas Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Crafts, the survey showed that the accommodation and food services, tourism, sports and leisure sectors found it difficult to find chefs and waiters. The car, spare parts, tools and service sectors show a lack of service people and auto-mechanics, and the healthcare sector, social work and beauty services lacked nurses.
