That depends on the job, of course.

Some jobs benefit from someone who has learnt at least the basics from books (or elsewhere), but even so having learnt the basics many such positions benefit more from personal experience and research.

Other jobs require very little or no book learning, but almost certainly benefit from experience.

No-one knows a job before having learnt it one way or another, either by book learning or by practical experience.

Here's your first lesson for free -- NEVER crap where you eat or sleep.

From that everything will slot into place.

Oh yes they do.
Would you be happy asking a surgeon to operate on you if they haven't first studied appropriate books to an extensive degree?
