Do I Need A Prestigious Degree To Get Hired By A Big Company?
This is a question I receive a lot: "John, do I need a prestigious degree to get hired by a big company?".
People fear that they won't be able to get hired by a big company like Google or Microsoft if they don't possess a prestigious degree. Is is true?
Big companies have merely two ways of recruiting people:
1- They use recruiters and get people right from universities. Those are the really big universities, the prestigious one.
2- They get a referral.
If you don't fit on the first option, there is definitely other paths you should follow to get hired by a big company. Bottom line is: No... You actually DON'T need a prestigious degree to get hired by a big company.
