or they could just hire somebody that's pre-phd, and save the hassle.
I'm pretty sure they're using the PhDs they hired to do stuff related to their field.
Oh, definitely, but I was just stating I could see them hiring intelligent and educated people just to train them. Obviously, these types of cases won't be of Google hiring a rocket scientist just to train the person to become a spokesperson for the company. =P
Because in an ever-changing field, too many degree earners are behind the curve quickly after earning their degrees. How relevant is a Comp Sci degree from the 80s in today's world? Should I be impressed that you can program the hell out of COBOL? Some companies are placing a premium on the ability to learn, not on WHAT you've learned, because they need you to adapt and continue to learn new things.
Computer Science degree doesn't really teach you one programming language. Now they teach OOAD and Architectural Programming. You can learn a new language really fast, cause they are all pretty much the same.
College degree doesn't prepare you for the job. It prepares you to learn new stuffs in a more efficient way.
