It Was Harder to Get a Job at Walmart Than to Get Into Harvard This Year


Here's a crazy anecdote that shows how TOUGH it still is to get a job out there.
 
Last year, a Walmart opened in Washington D.C. and got 23,000 applications for 600 jobs.  That means only 2.6% of people who applied got a position.
 
Well . . . the Ivy League schools just released THEIR admission rates.  And it was easier to get into HARVARD than to get into Walmart.
 
8.9% of people who applied to Harvard got in . . . and that was the toughest of the eight Ivy League schools.  It also means Walmart was almost three times pickier than Harvard.   (Washington Post)
