Recruitment does not depend on academic qualificationsMusk, I want to start a university! Texas Tech. One thought caused the whole network to watch. On Friday, netizens also abbreviated the schoolT.I.T.SPush directly on the hot list. It should have a School of Computer Statistics. Will there be a branch school in Shanghai? Are funds guaranteed? … But this wave of operations is somewhat familiar to Chinese netizens.
Earlier on the China Development Forum, Musk revealed this idea:
I hope that in the future I can open a university to cultivate talents in programming.
Why on earth do you want to do? What to do? We might as well imagine it boldly.
University in Texas
Musk, a resident of Texas, of course wants to open a university in Texas.
Even the businesses of several of his companies are moving more or less to Texas.
Earlier this month, Musk announced that he would move Tesla’s headquarters to Texas. On the one hand, continue to expand the scale of the California plant, on the other hand, the new plant in Austin, Texas will start production next year.
And his other two companies, SpaceX and Boring, also have the intention of continuing to expand in Texas.
Needless to say SpaceX, Musk has always wanted to expand StarBase, the launch base there, and even wanted to build a “city”.
And earlier this year, Boring negotiated with officials in San Antonio and Austin to establish an underground traffic loop in central Texas.
Thanks to the tax cuts in Texas, Musk is not the only one to expand his business in Texas.

Nowadays, a large wave of technology companies has swarmed in. Even if there are currently more than 90 colleges and universities in Texas, including well-known schools such as Austin Texas and Rice University, they are naturally in short supply.
The talent gap cannot be ignored, and running a school has become an attempt. And for enterprises, it is also more conducive to the interaction of production, education and research.
Just as Silicon Valley has become the world’s cutting-edge technology position, it largely relies on the talent support of Stanford University and UC Berkeley.
But maybe Musk estimated that he didn’t think so much.
But a few years later, it is really going to be built, and this kind of symbiosis will inevitably occur in Texas.
Now, one thing is clear:T is def first.
Technology clearly comes first.
Musk’s talent standards
Musk, who says that he doesn’t depend on his academic qualifications, has always been physically honest.
Over the past year, it has been emphasized several times:High school diploma is also available.
But just pick an employee from Space X and Tesla, which is not the top level.
Take SpaceX as an example. When it was founded, Musk included all-star start-up teams, including executives from commercial space companies such as Boeing and JPL, and aerospace scientists from top research centers.
For example, the promotion department serves as the chief technology officerTom mueller.
He worked for TRW, the largest engine manufacturer in the United States, for 15 years. TRW, which conducts business in aerospace, electronics, automobiles, and other fields, has developed many spacecraft. The most famous product is the landing power system of the Apollo moon landing spacecraft.
There are also Chris Thompson, the chief designer of the McDonnell Douglas “Hercules” rocket; Tim Buzza, who was the director of Delta rocket testing at Boeing for 15 years…
And this kind of talent standard has continued to this day and even in many other companies.
According to reports, the first 1,000 employees of SpaceX, including the door guard, are interviewed by Musk himself; the hiring of each Tesla employee is also approved by Musk himself.
And not only the approval, but also the recruitment of Musk himself.
In April of this year, he advertised on Twitter for the 2022 recruitment plan of the Tesla factory in Austin.
The AI Day held in mid-September is also to attract more software engineers and AI developers.
On this open day, Musk showed off his muscles, and new technologies such as car robots and self-developed AI training chip D1 were unveiled, which once caused a sensation in the entire AI circle.
It is not difficult to see from such vigorous shouting that Musk has always attached great importance to talents.
Talent Management Guru Musk
But having said that, because of the shortage of talents, I thought of running a university to train myself and solving the problem from the source.
Musk is really good at recruiting people.
It doesn’t seem surprising that he can think of this trick.
After all, the Silicon Valley “Iron Man” has always put a lot of effort on talent recruitment and management.
I would call it–Tesla’s number one gold medal HR.
Take the interview method he once talked about publicly.
He will ask candidates to talk about the difficult problems they have dealt with in their working life, how they have handled them, and how they have made decisions at key turning points.
Musk feels that these questions can make him understand a person.
And he also cares whether the candidate has made outstanding achievements and whether he is the main player in a task.
So I will go to ask some very detailed details, “only those who are really responsible for solving the problem will know these details.”
As for employee management, Musk has long stopped playing the process.
In an email sent to employees a few years ago, he stated:
As long as it is for the interests of the entire company, any Tesla employee can directly email or talk to anyone in the company, whether it is a department manager, other department heads, or Musk himself, no problem.
Such flexible employment standards and management systems not only make employees feel satisfied, but also make Tesla and SpaceX very popular among American students.
According to Universum data, Tesla and SpaceX are among the top 2 companies most popular with American engineering students in 2019 and 2020.
Business and computer majors are no exception.
In 2020, Tesla ranks among Universum’s most popular companies for business studentsNo. 8, Ranked in the computer professional listnumber 5.
One More Thing
Starting a company is so popular. If you really want to start a university, then it’s worth it?
No, Musk just sent out his ideas and attracted many onlookers.
Everyone really cares about the construction of the school.
Some domestic netizens have made suggestions: It is recommended to build in Shanghai, and students can start registering next year (doge).
However, as we all know, Shandong has Dezhou (Texas) and Binzhou (Pennsylvania). Some netizens said: Of course, it will be built in Shandong.
Others have considered the issue of tuition:
Let Dogecoin be your tuition.
But Musk can do this school, maybe it’s about the same with a Tesla.
Some people added: Undergraduates bring a driver’s license, and accommodations include parking spaces.
It seems that everyone is really concerned about Musk’s running a school.
Oh, by the “Forbes” latest report, Musk became the richest man in the magazine’s statistical history with a fortune of US$270 billion.
ps: Just the day before yesterday, Bloomberg’s data rose again, and Musk became the first person in history to be worth more than 300 billion US dollars.
When will Musk, the richest man on earth, be able to build a university?
Let’s squat together for a follow-up.
