Submission + - Steve Blank: No One Cares About Your Education (

itwbennett writes: "Retired entrepreneur and Stanford professor, Steve Blank, recalls in a blog post how a recruiter once suggested he fudge a degree on his resume to land a plum job. He didn't do it, got the job, and to this day doesn't include an education section on his resume. The fact that he has no college degree is part of the reason, but also if your're using your education to catch the attention of whoever is filtering resumes, you might as well use the space to mention your Mensa membership. Better yet, let your work experience do the talking."
