I agree with you wrt software jobs, but overall it varies by field. The linked example is someone who is a Phd student, so I'd say it's pretty relevant to be at the top.

On the other hand, if you're a developer and still have your degree at the top of the page after 7-10 years, my gut-check-needle drops into danger zone and while I will read the work experience part, I do it with the knowledge that you think you've wasted all that valuable learning time. This is extra true for people from prestigious schools.
