A TSF tipster says Sun Media wants to know the education levels of its employees.
Not satisfied with employment application resumes, employees are being asked to provide education details.
"It is supposed to be to complete employee records, which they should already have through resumes we all submitted when we applied for jobs," says the tipster.
"While the company may be trying to update records, I get a strange feeling from it. Why do they need to know this information? Are they going to turf people who don't have the level of education they want or expect?
"It just seems fishy. Call me paranoid if you want, but with this company, you never know what they are going to do next."
Well, you can't have any riffraff high school dropouts working for Sun Media, gifted and professional as they might be.
We wonder how many North American newspaper giants from the 19th and 20th century wouldn't get a newspaper job today because of a lack of education.
The self-taught giants who dropped out of school early to help support their parents, or to fight for their country.
Education is a plus, but it should not be the lone factor for employment.
