Degrees give you attention, Skills give you respect, You need respect, not attention – Reno


Nigerian human right activist, Reno Omokri has taken to twitter to share his thoughts on having a degree vs having a skill in the world we live in today.

Even though a degree is very important, Reno believes having a degree only gives you attention and having a skill gives one respect.

According to him, companies of today are looking for skills not just a degree.

“Degrees give you attention. Skills give you respect. You need respect, not attention. Companies aren’t looking for people who know how to say it well. They are looking for those who know how to do it well. Today’s firms want skills not certificates.”

One social media user replied to his tweet.

Reno Omokri is a Nigerian human right activist. Omokri was the host of Transformation with Reno Omokri, a Christian teaching TV show broadcast on San Francisco’s KTLN and Detroit’s Impact Network.
