True, qualification nahi, skills and experience are more important. We need to get out of degree holder mindset. https://t.co/LfH5DpJPuL— आदित्य शाही (Āditya Shāhi) (@chocolatchef9) June 27, 2022
Very well Put 💙we are entering an age where speed, flexibility, innovation and execution matter much more than decades-old qualifications or antiquated experiences dressing up a lengthy resume. https://t.co/9YhcS3hBqG— Manoj K Jha aka Manu 😷 (@manojgjha) June 27, 2022

The idea of qualification has sucked the world more than anything else. https://t.co/sn84au46ul— Suyash Karn (@suyashkarn) June 27, 2022
@vaibhavdasalkar My personal opinion: True entrepreneurs seldom bother about qualifications handed out by means of pieces of printed paper. Those with such paper qualifications work for the entrepreneurs. Our obsession with such qualifications has done us far more harm than good.— Pramod Kumar (@PramodPks1966) June 27, 2022

I don’t know why PPL in India people are so obsessed with degree and qualifications..— bhawna priya (@bhawnapriya10) June 27, 2022
Only quality matters is your hunger for learning and giving your 100%
Sir, you are an institution yourself and anyone just be with you for an hour will count as a graduation for him.— Kailas Jain (@jain_kailas) June 27, 2022
