Legendary Nintendo game creator Shigeru Miyamoto has revealed that Nintendo wouldn't employee him now if he was fresh out university. He noted that Nintendo is starting to recruit only from the top-tier universities and Miyamoto notes that by today's standards, he would not get into the company at all.
<blockquote>Speaking to Edge, Miyamoto said: â€œNintendo has become one of those companies that graduates from colleges and good universities really want to work for.
â€œBecause of that, the competitionâ€™s really become so fierce for positions. And that means that a lot of the recent recruits for Nintendo have tended to have the higher degree from the prestigious colleges and universities and whatnot.
â€œI often say to Mr Iwata: â€˜If I was applying for a job here today, I, with my actual college degree, would probably not have been employed by Nintendoâ€™.â€
Miyamoto assured the industry that he still looks out for those with qualities that arenâ€™t reflected by official qualifications, even getting involved in the interview process himself</blockquote>
