When Hiring Does "Education" Mean Anything?

By Lucas Robak · Posted on Friday, July 21, 2017


My main objective is to find people who are competent enough to think for themselves, able figure it out, are passionate, and can choose to think themselves into doing everything it takes to get the job done.

Are they more obedient if they have good grades and/or college education? or does it make them more creative and hard working? or does it make them more entitled and lazy? or does it make them more independent or dependent? or is it more likely they're a free thinker with horrible grades? or should I just play it safe and focus on dropouts to get these skillsets?

This is literally a fully blown serious question and looking for extremely honest feedback on how you perceive "Education" on the resume and why!

A person who does not have a college degree, you might find them to be free thinkers to get the job done, at the same time their way is always the best way. Even a college grad might not turn out to what you thought he was but in my experience, an education... (more)

Hi Lucas, I manage a large dental practice, and I agree, finding the right people gets harder and harder. Sometimes it seems as if the person I was impressed enough to hire, is a completely different person than the one who shows up for work. In our profession, some positions such as hygienist require a license, while dental assistants and front office personnel do not. It's not easier to hire for one position than another, education or not. For me it comes down to what's inside of their heads. Do they take pride in doing a great job, or is this just a way to...
