I invited a Future-Link advisor to speak to my team about career and education opportunities offered by the company/union. He took a few minutes to give my directs an overview and a list of the benefits offered by Future-Link, as well as explained to them a little bit about the history and goals of Future-Link. After his presentation, him and I had a discussion about career and education. None of my directs were present during this discussion. He asked me my current level of education, and I told him I have a BS in Business Management from University of Phoenix (UOPX), and I am currently three classes shy of finishing a Master’s degree program in I-O Psychology from Capella University. Both are accredited Universities. He said to me that he earned his Master’s degree from Johns Hopkins University. He stated that he went to Johns Hopkins because he was told that most companies will not hire employees with degrees from anything other than Ivy League Universities. I asked him why? His response was “because students who graduate from colleges such as UOP don’t have the proper education, they only have the degree.” Are there any hiring-managers here that share this philosophy? If so can you please share why?
