Does getting excellent grades really matter to employers?


I just found out that some employers, including one that sells roast pork, requires employees who are highly educated - which means they have completed tertiary education. I guess barbequing pork is a job that anyone, as long as they have the right disposition and willingness to learn, can do? Why are they so fastidious?

    Ivan, yes we learn many abstract abilities. However, the system of 300 years ago, on the job training, apprenticeships, midshipman positions, and etcetera also taught people skills, abilities, and abstract qualities. Working TAUGHT them.

    As an engineer, science type, I can tell you: A's are not easy in science. Those who get them are very often socially inept. Great people, yes. Able to reassure a client, or think on their feet to resolve an issue in the field... don't count on it.
