15 top companies where you can get hired without a college degree

By tcavadias Staff ·
While a college degree used to be a standard requirement for many office jobs, that's increasingly no longer the case. Major firms are now ditching the application requirement of a four-year degree. Both Google and Apple are among the 15 top companies where you can get hired without a college degree.

Many talented applicants might be self-taught, or have a serious set of skills they acquired outside of traditional academic institutions.

What do you think? Should a college degree be required for top jobs? or can the school of hard knocks provide just as good (if not better) skills needed?

Skills over degree

In my opinion, the education level is overvalued today. As a founder of multiple companies, I always look at what people can do and not what kind of diploma they have. When young woman come to my office and say that she didn't graduate any college, she has a baby and she's writing articles for some sites (link removed by moderator) I'll check her writing skills but not her degree.
