Why do we study? Ask this question to yourself and the most traditional response will come to you from the inside. We study so that we can secure a good job and build our career and earn livelihood. But in all this we forget one important question: What is the criterion for getting a good job? Is it degree or talent?
Well, instead of giving an answer let us give you an example. Ernst and Young is the fifth largest recruiter of graduates in the UK and the company is not considering highest qualification for the job.
So the question comes what the organization is doing?
"¢Recently they decided to remove the degree classification as one of the criteria.
"¢The company has also scraped the policy of 2:1 GPA
"¢Now the organization is open to individuals from all backgrounds.
Why the shift?
"¢Apparently the organization is the first to recognize that students cannot be judged on the basis of their grades.
"¢Achievements of college lifetime cannot be correlated to the professional world.
What is the new pattern of selection?
"¢Company will use its own online assessment.
"¢Academic qualification will be taken into account but will not act as a barrier in taking the first step.
"¢Maggie Stilwell, EY's managing partner for talent said "Our own internal research of over 400 graduates found that screening students based on academic performance alone was too blunt an approach to recruitment."
"¢She further added "The research found no evidence to conclude that previous success in higher education correlated with future success in subsequent professional qualifications undertaken."
