Trump: The Federal Gov’t Will No Longer Be Focused on Where You Went to School but the Skills You Bring to the Job

‘We want it based on merit’
By Grabien Staff

TRUMP: "Today I'll sign an executive order that directs the federal government to replace outdated, and really outdated — it’s called degree-based hiring — with skill-based hiring. We want it based on skill. The federal government will no longer be narrowly focused on where you went to school, but the skills and the talents that you bring to the job, we want that skill to be there. We want it based on merit. We’ve looked at merit for a long time and we’ve been able to get that done. Today’s signing is a very, very important one."
