Sorry, Harvard: Hiring managers aren’t always seeing crimson
All Ivies are not created equal.
Graduates from the University of Pennsylvania who post their resumes on Indeed.com get the most call-backs from potential employers (30.6% higher than average for an Ivy grad). That’s followed closely by Yale (30.4%). Columbia (20.8%), Harvard (12.3%) and Cornell (.54%) come in third, fourth and fifth, respectively. Meanwhile, Princeton had the fewest callbacks (48.3% less than average), followed by Brown (-26.4%) Dartmouth (-20.1%), the Indeed data — which looked at 10,000 Ivy league resumes and related callback data on them from June 2016 – June 2017 — revealed.
full disclosure: I am a proud Penn alum.
