This New York Times article “How to Get a Job at Google, Part 2” (April 19, 2014) has generated some buzz about the value of college. I particularly like Cathy Davidson’s comments at the HASTAC blog (April 20, 2014). We provided a brief discussion of the topic on a Learn the 4 Ps post about a month ago, see “Where do you want to work?” (March 21, 2014). The NYT article features an interview with Laszlo Bock who is in charge of all hiring at Google.
I think the articles and Davidson’s commentary should be thought-provoking for current or soon-to-be college students. It suggests how to leverage college to your advantage.
