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?

Let us know in the comments below or hop on over to read the full article and leave your comments there.

Some people go to college and don't learn anything! If someone is driven and show they can learn quickly - why would you knock them?

High Demand-Skills

Nowadays skills matters most. So keep on updating yourself with new set of skills in whichever field you want to go.

But I think in some countries at least having a bachelor degree is a criteria set for entry level positions.

Learning never stops..

It's great to know that there are companies that hire self-taught individuals. Traditional education is good but educating yourself is not restricted inside the four walls of the academic arena. A college degree should not be a strict requirement. A good school can help you. But it's always you who are responsible for your future. Even if you took a related course, you still need to do self-study. That's how you grow.
I stumbled upon some articles which I believe can inspire the readers:

Skills over degree

by mistershaver1 In reply to 15 top companies where yo ...

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.
