  • (n.) The belief that only people with proper credentials should be hired. If you go to college, you implicitly support credentialism -- or at least you do not reject it. If you refuse to go to college, then you show disrespect for credentialism. That disrespect may represent a threat to hiring managers who are credentialist.
