...This exam [OECD's PIAAC], given in 23 countries, assessed the thinking abilities and workplace skills of adults. It focused on literacy, math and technological problem-solving.

But these are jobs many of us choose. Alot more accessible.
Adobe CC
Maya
Cinema4D
Unity
Unreal
Zbrush

Used them all.

Most of it we can self teach. Thats how I learned. Though classes are a big help.
