Would you hire a job applicant who was Home-schooled?
Years ago in a job I had it was necessary, from time to time, for me to select people to be hired for the company. When there was a position that needed to be filled I'd head down to the Personnel Office where I'd be given current job applications for review. I'd pick the one's I liked and they'd arrange appointments for interviews and so on.
I had that job for about four years and in that time I never saw an application from anyone who indicated they were 'home schooled'. If I had seen that I would have passed it over faster than a 7th grade drop out.
How about you, would you do the same - reject home schooled applicants out of hand without further consideration? There are certainly examples of well educated children who were home schooled and others who are not but overall how do you feel about home schooling?
I especially like this one!

37. Of course! I would hire Ava in a heartbeat.
My niece only completed up to the 8th grade, but she's very good with networking, and one of the smartest people I know. She is also an athiest, and one of the kindest people I know.
