Some employers are asking college graduates for their SAT scores, reports the Christian Science Monitor.
Ironically, just at a moment when more colleges are questioning the value of standardized testing in the admissions process, some companies are taking a second look at the old scores.
. . . Since Goldman Sachs takes students from any academic background, (campus recruiting director Aaron) Marcus says math scores of 700 (out of 800) or higher indicate “whether they’re comfortable with numbers.” Applicants initially self-report test scores and submit a résumé that highlights leadership and work experience. An official college transcript is not reviewed until the company decides to make an offer.
Employers must be wary of grade inflation.
