Employers are turning away from the Ivy League as they prioritize skills over activism.

Recent protests, particularly those regarding Palestine and Ukraine, have raised significant concerns among US colleges, particularly those globally esteemed, such as the Ivy League, regarding employers’ reluctance to recruit from these institutions. 

Traditionally, graduating from an Ivy League university was perceived as a direct pathway to success. However, a recent survey by Forbes indicates a shifting trend, with employers increasingly seeking talent beyond the Ivy League pool. 

Employers have noted a tendency within Ivy League institutions to prioritize performative activism over academic excellence, prompting them to explore recruitment avenues elsewhere. Entrepreneur and CEO Liz Elting highlighted this observation, stating that her experience showed diminishing correlation between prestigious school backgrounds and success within her company. 

This realization has led to a broader recognition among employers that talent is not confined to Ivy League graduates. Forbes’ survey introduced the concept of “New Ivies,” comprising 10 public and 10 private universities producing highly sought-after graduates across various industries. 

This shift in recruitment strategies coincides with a surge in campus protests across the nation. As employers increasingly acknowledge the evolving landscape of higher education amidst heightened activism and instances of campus antisemitism, they are diversifying their recruitment approaches.
