Isn't that how it is always is anywhere? That's why a lot of places want you to have experience?

It goes in waves.. hire who you know, realize they suck, hire actual skill, enter a golden age, forget why you hired skill and fire them when they ask for more money, hire who you know, etc.

Dead for Tax Reasons: President Trump wants federal hiring to focus on skills over degrees

He's hired plenty of some good people. He just won't listen to them.

There's nothing wrong with accepting expedience in place of degree requirements. I do it when I hire as do most smaller, non-governmental businesses. The problem is that most large organizations have independent HR departments who control the whole hiring process. They  struggle with this concept because the people in charge of the hiring often have no idea of what the job really entails, other than a job description, so they really can't evaluate applicants properly. So, for example an HR person may struggle to compare a candidate with an MBA and limited OTJ management experience with a candidate without an MBA but 10 years of OTJ experience in an management position. Filtering by using a degree requirement is much simpler. It also eliminates bias, or the perception of bias, because assessing OTJ experience is very subjective whereas a specific educational requirement is purely objective.

I love how a certain demographic thinks college teaches no skills but does give automatic lobotomies to the common sense part of the brain. fark those people.

I just got offered a Govt job and I only have an associates so im getting a kick. The pay is too low though so I will probably have to decline.

The only skill he's interested in is ass kissing.

Just another way right wing idiots devalue actual knowledge and education.

Can't wait for a "doctor" to put leeches on trump to draw out the evil spirits that the left cursed him with.

Sounds like they have somebody that doesnt have a degree that they want to hire for a position that has a degree requirement
Solution
Rewrite the job requirements to  fit exactly who they want to hire

Well thats what happens around here

/ I have no desire to be any part of management around here
// I get too much enjoyment watching them deal with the problems they create
/// Three because HR wants everything in triplicate

In a way they do, when what passes for 'common sense' are a set of prejudices and life experiences. Think of all the stuff you might have learned if you hadn't been busy studying for exams, writing papers, and engaging in coursework. It's a problem in expertise in that outside of a field of expertise it's really difficult to understand, let alone judge it. When a tradesman sees an API developer unable to repair his own car, or install his own tiled floor, then they're going to think less of that developer because by their own standards that developer is dumb [at fixing cars and installing tiles]. Likewise if you're not specifically encouraged to examine your ideas and prejudices doing so is going to look pointless and silly, and after all you're smart so why wouldn't your ideas be as well?

Same with where I work.

Doesn't matter.  If they don't like you, it doesn't matter how much experience or education you have.  "mmm...You're not the 'right fit'..."  They'll find a way to hire somebody that they want to.
