CIO – 71 percent place more weight on skills and experience than on higher education

A Robert Half Technology survey of some 2,400 chief information officers at companies with more than 100 employees found 71 percent place “more weight on skills and experience than on whether or not a candidate attended college/university.” Another 12 percent said university prestige didn’t matter at all.

Now, that’s not to say most tech executives complete ignore degrees — 17 percent say they put at least some weight on a candidate’s education. But what the majority look for first are candidates who can get the job done.
