Some commenters have (incorrectly) reduced the results to something like this: Ivy league grads get the plum leadership jobs and the rest of the hires get the, well, worker-bee jobs. Or, that we just surveyed engineering and accounting or other large business firms.
Not so. There were 29 industries represented and two of the largest were banking and consulting. The respondents were a veritable who’s who of companies. Most were large, yes. But most of these companies also hired for a broad array of positions in their firms, beyond their specialties.
Business doesn’t run on cachet and prestige. It doesn’t even run on intellect. At its heart, businesses run and grow with smart people who know their stuff and who are creative, have bright ideas and can get things done.
