Mexico needs adequate talent to fill the main vacancies, since the most sought-after profiles by companies are professionals with technical specialization, such as machine operators, sales representatives or office employees.
According to Manpower Group and its affiliate in Latin America, there is a talent shortage and one in two companies has trouble finding people with the skills required to fill emerging jobs.
Mainly, the most difficult positions to fill in the country require additional training paid by companies. They are intermediate specialization positions, so they do not require a university degree.
Organizations even look more for those who perform qualified trades (which are in the fourth place of the most requested) than for engineers or lawyers (professions that are in the seventh and ninth place of vacancies with the most demand).
The phenomenon of the lack of qualified technicians have been present among Mexican employers for several years. The workforce has reported this situation since 2015 and notes that the main cause is that it is difficult to certify technical skills outside of university education.
Approximately one and a half million technicians are required in the country to meet the needs of workers. And many of the technicians have a better salary compared to a professional with a college degree.
For this reason, it is important to consider the negative ideas that are had about technical careers, since the rejection of them leads to believe that they are less valuable than a bachelor’s degree.
Professionals or specialized technicians?
There are many myths and it is necessary to review that both professionals and technicians can bring many benefits and talent.
You need to be well informed about what it means to be a graduate or pursue a specialized technical career.
The graduate has permission (or license) to practice a certain profession, where he receives the preparation that will make him a specialist in some area. His field of action is broader than that of a specialized technician, and he receives more theoretical and general training.
Instead, a specialized technician studies a more specific and practical career, specializing in a particular area to qualify. There are technical careers in almost any area of knowledge: social sciences, administration, biology, among others.
To understand which option is better is the following example: a graduate in Communication and a technician in the same area. If you both work on a television show, the former may
see the contents of the program, how to transmit them, promotion strategies, while the technician can take care of the technical issues of the studio, such as the management of television cameras, sound, setting. Neither is more important than the other, but rather they complement each other so that the program can air.
Both receive higher education and professional preparation: the graduate studies approximately four or five years because he covers more areas of knowledge more extensively, while the technician has a shorter career, of about two years, because his studies are specific.
In both cases it is possible to get a job and grow professionally if you are well prepared. Both professionals and specialized technicians can continue studying to train and obtain a better income.
According to the needs of the companies, it will be the search for candidates. The important thing is to train yourself to offer the best.
In fact, some of the competencies that organizations seek are not developed in schools, so it is necessary to learn about the subject.
The skills that organizations ask for
College graduates do not learn in school about skills that are in high demand by companies. They are called Soft Skills, such as the ability to work in a team, communication, empathy, leadership.
According to the 2018 National Graduate Survey, from the Laureate Center for Public Opinion, one of the skills acquired at the university and valued as very useful is verbal communication, in addition to the knowledge inherent to the same career, followed by teamwork and leadership .
Instead, a skill that is not adequately developed in universities is to speak other languages.
In general, private school graduates consider that they developed their skills and competencies well, unlike what public school graduates say.
Continuous training is Manpower’s proposal for this problem and this training is more easily available thanks to the internet, where courses on all subjects are taught today.
Here, learn more about the job skills that a company is looking for and that are generally not developed at university.
In fact, many candidates apply for a job, but they are not left with the vacancy because they do not meet these much-needed skills.
According to a Survey of Professional Competencies carried out by the Center for Research for Development, A.C. (CIDAC) 26 percent of companies face difficulties in finding young workers with the right profile.
This lack of talent has to do with the skills and traits necessary to overcome challenges and solve problems at work. For this reason, more and more companies evaluate applicants based on the competencies indicated in their profiles.
