Google, IBM, Apple, EY, and more don't care about a college degree and can hire you without one

The need for degrees that establish a baseline of skills and minimum required qualification is something described as how the world works.

Google, Apple, and IBM are among the top global companies in the world of technology and most likely the dream companies where most students would like to be employed once they are done with their education. Education that these students are investing in to ensure that they get the required degrees and skills to be eligible to get a job at their dream companies. The need for degrees that establish a baseline of skills and minimum required qualification is something described as how the world works.

However, if you are a student who is reading this and you wish to work at these companies, what if we told you that you don’t really require a degree and instead, you only require the necessary skills. You may think that there is a catch with the situation but we are here to tell that you would be wrong in assuming that. Job searching website Glassdoor recently conducted research to compile a list of 15 companies that state that they no longer need their applicants to have college degrees. The report pointed out that these companies are increasingly looking at non-traditional education or even a high-school diploma.

The list of such companies includes Google, Ernst and Young (EY), Penguin Random House, Costco Wholesale, Whole Foods, Hilton, Publix, Apple, Starbucks, Nordstrom, Home Depot, IBM, Bank of America, Chipotle, and Lowe’s.

As part of the report, Laszlo Bock, former Senior Vice President of People Operation issued a statement to clarify the stand of the company adding, When you look at people who don t go to school and make their way in the world, those are exceptional human beings. And we should do everything we can to find those people .

In addition to that Managing Partner for talent at EY, Maggie Stilwell also added, Academic qualifications will still be taken into account and indeed remain an important consideration when assessing candidates as a whole, but will no longer act as a barrier to getting a foot in the door.

These statements point to an increasing awareness about how an increasing number of companies are realizing that a degree does not define work ethic, talent, and skill. Instead, real-world experience, skill, and quick thinking with practical solutions also go a long way in defining a productive employee.
