Talent – GPA’s are unimportant. Really? But you are not Google

How Google is driving hiring standards Let’s fast forward to today. Jobvite recently released their 2015 Capture d’écran 2015-09-27 à 09.25.02Recruiter Nation Survey. It’s always an interesting read, with great data and metrics, but one metric stood out, to me, above all others:

“57 percent of organizations now report that GPAs are unimportant.”

Do you see what just happened?

If Jobvite would have asked organizations and recruiters in January of this year this same question, prior to Laszlo’s announcement, how do you think this number would be different? I’m telling you the number would have been around 5 percent or less!

GPA’s are unimportant. Really?

Here’s what Google, I mean Laszlo, forgot to tell everyone about why Google can hire people who have never gone to college:

THEY HIRE FREAKING GENIUSES THAT HAVE BEEN CODING IN THEIR PARENT’S BASEMENTS SINCE THEY WERE 12!

What Google is hiring is not what you are hiring

These kids don’t need college. College would bore them. They know more than the professors teaching them. Google gets to hire the top 1 percent of people, not just college grads.

You won’t get these geniuses who don’t need to go to college. You will probably get half-baked nitwits who need college, a good spanking, a few years to grow up, and probably deep therapy.

That’s because you are not Google.
