Custom-made employees

With the advent of Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs)  one of the bees buzzing in CEOs' bonnets is the idea that they can have custom-educated employees.  E.g., to get an entry-level position in such-and-such-role at MegaCorp, the applicant must have successfully completed such-and-such MOOCs. 

Of course, Gigantic Inc., whose offices are next door, might have a different course list.  I cannot but sympathize in advance with the job-seeker of the future.
