English is a top requirement of/for those seeking good jobs.

What's the difference in meaning?

The difference is the focus changes with "of" and "for". Using "of" puts the focus on the employee applicant. English is the top requirement the applicant needs. The focus is on the person applying.

Using "for" is looking at it from the employers point of view. English is the top requirement for the applicant to have if I am to hire them. One of my reasons for hiring someone would be because they will be required to be proficient in English.


We should look to the past to learn from it, not destroy our future because of it — FounDit
