Hire people with skills, not many degrees

Adam Grant, an American psychologist and professor at the Wharton School once said; “The mark of higher education isn’t the knowledge you accumulate in your head. It’s the skills you gain about how to learn.”
In essence, learning begins after school. This is perhaps the reason many employers prefer work experience, for skills are what differentiate us, not how high we have climbed the tertiary education ladder.
