How college prepares you to be a CEO, and how it fails
It seems parents are willing to sacrifice almost anything to ensure their kids get into good schools. They willingly give up their savings and free time — and, if the recent college admissions scandal is any indication, even their integrity.
As a father of three kids and a former Silicon Valley CEO, I can understand the pressure both parents and kids feel when it comes to getting into the right college. Many companies will only look at resumes from well-known universities. Hiring managers will invariably prioritize a degree from Oxford over Occidental. And for some positions, a higher-level degree is almost required.
