Some argue a degree isn’t an accurate indicator of one’s skill. Speaking at the World Economic Forum this week, IBM CEO Ginni Rometty would probably agree, if only to improve workers’ success in the tech industry, which is “moving faster in time than their skills are going to change.” She believes it’s tough to get and retain jobs in the tech sector and is calling on companies to hire based on skill as a potential remedy for that. “I think businesses have to believe I’ll hire for skills, not just their degrees or their diplomas. Because otherwise we’ll never bridge this gap. All of us are full of companies with university degrees, PhDs, you’ve got to make room for everyone in society in these jobs,” Rometty said as other business leaders on the panel nodded their heads.
