THE DUBLIN WEB Summit is hiring 40 new staff ahead of its November event but it’s not giving equal credits to degrees from different third-level institutions.

They will only look at applicants who received 1st class honours from UCD, UCC, NUIG, DCU, UL or Maynooth, though anyone with a 2.1 from Trinity will be considered. If you’re coming from an institute of technology, you’ll need a Masters.

So we want to know, Do you think a degree should have a different weight depending on where it’s from?

Poll Results:

No (6236)
Yes (4418)
I don't know (661)
