But do you know anything about this news issued by the American presidency that Executive Order on Modernizing, and Reforming the Assessment, and Hiring of Federal Job Candidates” as they mentioned in the order I quote “overreliance on college degrees excludes capable candidates and undermines labor-market efficiencies.”? “
This news indicates that employment is available for those who do not have educational degrees in a specific field. As long as they have full knowledge of this field and can take over the job with high efficiency after passing the tests and interviews.
This issue has been in effect for some time ago, but what is new is that this matter has become official from the US government and will affect most jobs in America and abroad and in government and private work as well.
Economic damage caused by the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic
According to statistics, there are millions of job losses and the collapse of companies, small and medium companies worldwide, especially in the sectors of tourism, hotels, aviation, oil, international trade, and many others.
Can you imagine the number of employees who lost their work during that period in each field? It is a huge number and they are all looking for work because they have responsibilities, bills and expenses for their families and homes, and this increases the difficulty of accepting the new work in the case that some companies start work at full capacity and open the door of employment again, then they will have to choose the best employees and the most skilled, efficient and productive.

personal development quotes
Many people love quotes and there are big numbers of searching about quotes at everything especially what related to self-improvements, growth, getting rich, and making money from self-made millionaires. sure quotes help us to take actions and show us the right way for example. I had an opinion on politics and about my acceptance of some of the interference from the executive authority over the legislative authority in some countries, and when I read some quotes of Gandhi and some of the giants of freedom and politics, I learned the difference and how this affects the existence of corruption and state collapse.
In fact, those quotes I used to watch on social media by chance, so we care with that point on our pages on social media and publish more quotes that really useful information. You can find our social media accounts at the bottom of the page.
