I think he is trying to say that he gets an advantage over job interviews? Or employers will go for his Harvard degree in name
Education is not a guarantee for success. People that strive to do something and eventually achieve it, are going to get that success regardless of whether they had a high school education or a PhD.A college education is often required to do great things. A high school diploma strictly limits you to working at retail stores, convenience stores, gas stations, car washes, and generally jobs where your name is on your shirt. A job where your name is on your desk, or on your building for that matter, requires a thorough education. Usually a masters or professional degree from a name-brand university.
Very successful people without college degrees are extremely exceptional cases.
Off-topic, but if you work on Wall-Street, you'd better make heaps upon heaps of money in order to pay for the ridiculous cost of "new york living".
A tiny one-bedroom studio apartment in NY can cost as much as a pricey mortgage. And the closer your residence is to Manhattan, the higher the rent/mortgage.
Apartments on Manhattan island can cost millions.
Personally, I would much rather NOT live in New York, even if I was offered one of those extremely high-paying jobs on Wall-Street.
This is stupid. Did you even bother to take a quick google to look at even the top 10 Fortune 500 CEOs? It sounds like you may not even able able to name a CEO period. It took me literally 10 minutes to find every single CEO of the top 10 in the Fortune 500 list.A MA or PhD from a top-tier university is certainly one of the stepping stones to becoming the head of a big corporation. I can't name any CEO's or top-executives who don't have at least a MA from a big-name university.
Wow(have a similar story-on the other end of that story)! This recently happened to me just a few weeks ago.i recall having this discussion with a young man at my church who was getting a degree from our flagship state university business school. he was very shocked when i suggested his business school degree did not guarantee him a job. later that year i went into wendy's for a burger and the familiar looking guy behind the counter gave me a very nasty look. when i got outside i remembered him as the young man from the church conversation.

Sources please? Have you never heard of Microsoft, Apple or Facebook? I'm pretty much oblivious to the business world, and even I know that Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Mark Zuckerburg don't have college degrees (except for maybe honorary ones). Please, if you're going to start a topic (or should I say, a bunch of topics) and argue a point, do everyone the courtesy of at least doing a trivial amount of research on the topic. It's really not that difficult, and I'm most certainly not the first one to tell you this.A MA or PhD from a top-tier university is certainly one of the stepping stones to becoming the head of a big corporation.
