Is not having a degree stopping you in your career tracks?

Is not having a degree stopping you in your career tracks?

We felt compelled to write a short article on the degree culture we seem to find ourselves in after reading this article on “Degree Inflation”. Now more than ever having a degree is becoming a mandatory requirement for most jobs. The fact that someone has perhaps thirty years to offer in experience and skills can be overlooked because they don’t have a degree. From speaking to a lot of job seekers in the midlife bracket it is becoming an inreasing barrier. More so as there is an increasingly challenging competitive job marketplace as so many people are being made redundant or seeking a career change.
