The bottom line? Defining “qualified for a role” as holding a four-year degree means missing out on over half of today’s software engineers. That’s why top companies like Apple, Google, and Tesla have done away with only hiring engineers and developers from “traditional” backgrounds. They now embrace skills-based hiring as the true means to finding the most capable candidates.
At Hired, we highly encourage our employers to reject pedigree bias and embrace our bootcamp partners to find the most qualified candidates currently seeking their next opportunity.Want to read more in-depth articles on individual partners?
