Shigeru Miyamoto has confessed to Edge Magazine that he doesn’t believes in this day and age that he would get accepted at Nintendo with his current academic qualifications.
“Nintendo has become one of those companies that graduates from colleges and good universities really want to work for.”
“Because of that, the competition’s really become so fierce for positions. And that means that a lot of the recent recruits for Nintendo have tended to have the higher degree from the prestigious colleges and universities and whatnot.
“I often say to Mr Iwata: ‘If I was applying for a job here today, I, with my actual college degree, would probably not have been employed by Nintendo!'”
