Why do people make such a big deal out of education? So what, you’ve wasted 4 or more years of your life to get a piece of paper saying you learned something. The education system in America is by far one of the worst education systems that I know of…It’s sad that companies base their new hires on their education (and even their grade point average) when anyone could easy cheat through the system.
Why do companies hire on education, when experience truly tells you everything? The world runs on education, but in most countries (especially this one) experience in the workforce tells much more and proves much more than a piece of paper you spent hundreds of thousands on. Who cares that you took some exams and passed? Doing well on exams that you can just read and remember the topics to is nothing compared to actually applying yourself and your skills in the workforce.
For example, I’m a young adult who has worked 40 plus hours since graduating high school (and even 60 hours a week since college). I have never had above a 3.2 grade point average in my life. Does that say I’m going to do badly in the work force? There’s a reason I’ve only held 3 jobs since I was 16 (and still hold all 3 of those jobs). Hiring shouldn’t be based off GPA’s or how you can communicate in an interview.
Why can’t we just hire the BEST person for the job?
