Yes, this is true that these giants don’t require their employees to have a 4-year college degree.
Recently the famous job search site Glassdoor listed 15 top employers that no longer want their applicants to have a college degree. Instead, these companies require candidates who have hands-on experience in the industry.
As one of the famous Entrepreneur, Patrick Bet-David warned that this could happen through his tweet earlier and as time passed it has become a reality. I still remember the video in which he asked the question. “Do you want to spend 4 years learning from people who never tried to practice what they teach, or learn from us (you) who have tried and failed multiple times before.” Changed my life.

It’s all about time and in future, we don’t know what may happen.
