Why Google doesn’t care about college degrees, in 5 quotes

I couldn’t agree more. The purpose of a resume is just to get you in for an interview. Nothing more. Nothing less. It is the only piece of advertising that you get to sell yourself and it is “ocean front property!” If you come in and can’t prove you can do what is listed on your resume, no degree listing, multiple degrees listed, etc. will help. They don’t care about where you went to school and how many degrees you have. It is about wither you can do the job. Thanks for the affirmation VentureBeat and Google 🙂
