This is an idea that is long overdue. “We are calling it school and university-blind interviewing,” Deloitte’s Head of UK Resourcing Victoria Lawes, said in an interview with LinkedIn. “What we really want to do is ensure that, whoever is recruiting isn’t consciously or unconsciously favoring a person who attended a certain school or university.” From my perspective, people from elite universities are certainly over-represented in many industries, but they don't actually appear to be more capable than people from other universities. I'd stack up the people I graduated with at the University of Calgary to any of them.
