Sorry, I didn't clarify.
Everyone says they know someone and they have jobs lined up... Except they don't, it's just bragging rights on the internet.
Yes, knowing some people helps. However it also depends where and the context of knowing them.
For the big corporations, they won't hire you if you just know someone. You still need the credentials. The credentials for a reputable company are typically steeper than a 2 year diploma.
Anyway, I don't really care, I just find it ammusing.. Please post up your $250,000 contract when you get it at the end of the your 2 year diploma.
