What employers want are people who will make a difference in the organization, who will contribute something, add value in the organization. Not people who are going to routinely work from morning to evening, doing whatever has to be done/ what they are told to do, take a fat salary and go home.

If we look at our own organizations/ institutions we will find that not everybody is a contributor. Some people are contributors; they run the place. The others are mere workers; they come there, somehow finish their work and go home. They may sometimes even be very highly qualified people, but that does not necessarily make them contributors.

Qualification and contribution are two different dimensions. Some people might be highly qualified, but zero contributors. And there are others who are not so highly qualified, (like maybe a watchman), who might be fantastic contributors in your organization.
