Seven Superstar CEOs Too Dumb to Work for Google
It looks like Google is hiring again.
The search giant says 2011 will be its “biggest hiring year in company history” which means it will likely hire more than the 6,000 it added in 2007.
Still, we all know how hard it is to get a job at Google. If you don’t have a PhD, then you may as well look into janitorial positions at the company. Don’t have any kind of degree? Yeah, good luck with that. You won’t get in, but you know what? None of these CEOs would ever qualify for a job at Google either–so you’re in great company.

Who else? Someone you admire? Are you a college dropout CEO?
