Jim Skinner: From Burgers to the Boardroom

by Shaina C. Indovino

In the last few decades, more and more people are going to college to further their education. It's hard to become a scientist, a professor, or a businessperson without getting some sort of college degree--but college isn't always necessary to achieve success. Some people are ready to enter the workforce right after high school. Jim Skinner was one of those people. The successful CEO began working for McDonald's more than 40 years ago, flipping burgers and salting fries. Today, Skinner is one of the most celebrated CEOs McDonald's has ever had. Skinner helped to turn the company's image and sales around, working to create a healthier menu and better customer experience in each of McDonald's thousands of restaurants around the world. And what's most amazing about his story is that the food company CEO has done it all without a college degree!
