Hello all,

I am curious to know if when applying for a job, do employers look at your alma mater. I am looking at universities and have narrowed my choices down to two, one of them being American Military University. My concern in chosing AMU is that an employer may not consider me because the HR manager is not familiar with the school. Any feedback would be gladly appreciated.

Proof that an alma mater matters has been in the news lately. Look at the folks who were spending big bucks illegally to get their kids into name universities.

Saw that. But that example says nothing about employers and their hiring processes.

If you are capable and hard working it shouldn't matter but before you can prove yourself you need to show your cv and your alma mater so I guess it does matter for some.
