<lurk mode off line>Greetings!Fakena post 1389Many CEO's do that route, and Forbes 500 of America had high school dropouts woth more than Masters degree holders and more of them. True. Most are entrepreneurs. Bill Gates is a drop out, and quite the entrepreneur.A couple of years ago, the retiring president of the CIBC (I believe) gave a speech in which he lamented the fact that in the post 80's world, if he were to start over his career with the bank... he would never get hired. Back in the early fifties, a high school grad would be hired as a junior credit officer, the retiring president's first job with the bank. Today, a high school grad may or may not get hired as a simple teller.An education is no substitute for common sense, drive and ideas. But sadly, a diploma is often the only shoehorn into many entry level positions in established companies and institutions.Cheers<lurk mode on line>
