All throughout our lives, we have heard that school and college degrees are one of the most essential documents that can help you to land a well-paying job at a big company. Students are always under tremendous stress to score good grades and get through good colleges to secure their future. But Glassdoor has recently compiled a list of 15 top employers that no longer require applicants to have a college degree. Some of the names include big companies like Google, Apple, IBM, and others, where your talent will be given more importance than your college degree.
Google’s former SVP of People Operations Laszlo Bock as quoted in the report said, "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."
Maggie Stilwell, Ernst and Young’s managing partner for talent highlighted, "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."
The list of the 15 companies where you can apply and get selected without a college degree are- Google, Bank of America, Chipotle, Lowe's, IBM, Home Depot, Nordstrom, Starbucks, Apple, Publix, Hilton, Whole Foods, Costco Wholesale, Penguin Random House, Ernst and Young (EY) and Google.
You can check the current openings in these above-mentioned companies and apply right away. All the best!
