both are important ) education is needed to shape capabilities and study discipline ) sometimes it is possible for a capable man to work without education however in the modern world you will not get a legal job without education

Both are important and you should apply for a job for which you are qualified. Sometimes family/political connections help you get a job as well.

Here in Brazil people with high level of education background works almost always as professors. If you don't want be a professor, you need to have capabilities. These capabilities you'll have when you participate of a trainnee program, for example.

I agree that both are important. However, you need to have a background that demonstrates or proves your capabilities. For example, if you were a graphic artist, you can always say that you have strong skills in "web design." BUT......You should also have the background to prove this. This is what internships are for; an internship is a job specifically for college grads/ students, so that they may have experience/background prior to applying for a job. If you have participated in an internship, be sure to mention how this internship validates your strongest skills/capabilities. Otherwise, make sure you mention as much experience you have that would be relevant to the job.
