Why?

Employers look for well qualified people who have the technical know-how and the ability to communicate, work in teams and strategise for the development of their organisation.

As the IT and Business world evolves, the expectations of employers have also changed. Businesses and organisations now express interest in individuals who have knowledge of a particular field but who can also demonstrate higher cognitive skills such as analysis, synthesis and evaluation.
