“Your degree is not a proxy for your ability to do any job”, says Google in NY Times

How to Get a Job at Google – NYTimes

Google attracts so much talent it can afford to look beyond
traditional metrics, like G.P.A. For most young people, though, going to
college and doing well is still the best way to master the tools needed for
many careers. But Bock is saying something important to them, too:
Beware. Your degree is not a proxy for your ability to do any job. The
world only cares about — and pays off on — what you can do with what
you know (and it doesn’t care how you learned it). And in an age when
innovation is increasingly a group endeavor, it also cares about a lot of
soft skills — leadership, humility, collaboration, adaptability and loving
to learn and re-learn. This will be true no matter where you go to work.
