I care a lot about hiring the right people to join TXI. But I think our version of “right” differs from other companies.
First off, I don’t care what university you went to. Or if you went to university. You can just leave that part off your resume and I will never notice.
What university you went to tells me a couple of things: 1) How well you can answer standardized test questions that research has shown to be biased toward over-represented groups and 2) How much money your family was able to spend for your higher education and/or how indebted you were willing to become for the same experience.
What university you went to tells me nothing about your skills, your curiosity, your passion, your openness to new ideas, your kindness, your dedication, or anything that I vet for when hiring.
