Diploma is no longer a prerequisite for getting a job at Apple, apparently

Working at Apple for few. Ok, we are talking about one of the largest employers in the world among publicly traded companies, but the level of requirement to occupy a position within Ma, understandably, is quite high. An important prerequisite, however, seems to be no longer considered in Cupertino.

According to a survey by the employment firm Glassdoor, Apple is among 15 companies that recently abandoned the requirement for a university degree to hire potential candidates. And, you see, we are not only talking about lower positions in the company's hierarchy, even more technical positions, such as engineering or management, can be occupied by people who have not completed or completed higher education.

And it?s not only at Apple that the paradigm shift is coming on other tech giants, like Google and IBM, are adopting similar practices. In addition, large companies in other fields, such as Starbucks, Hilton, Bank of America and Ernst & Young they are also entering the same boat.

The reason for such a simple change: more than a diploma, companies are looking for people with experience or wide skill in what they seek what can be better or worse for potential candidates, depending on their respective contexts. The idea with change, according to the Axios, encourage greater diversity in the work environment, attracting candidates who have followed an academic / professional trajectory different from the traditional one and may have acquired knowledge in environments other than the university.

Of course a university degree still has weight especially if he comes from a renowned institution and is accompanied by recommendations from distinguished professors or important certificates. The end of the requirement also does not necessarily mean that companies will pay the same salary for an employee with higher education than what they would pay for one who did not complete university, companies will still take all of this into account, after all.

Still, an interesting change, isn't it?
