Default No Degree

Anyone heard of anyone getting hired without a degree?

Do you know the details of this guy?
I'd love to know how impressive your resume has to be to compensate for the lack of degree.

I have no idea. I just heard from a guy who knows a guy... who heard of a guy who got hired without a degree. Allegedly.

There was one in my class that got picked up without one. I donít know what he did or who he knew, but it was not something he was proud of admitting cause he only revealed it to a few of us in class. Itís always better to get one, put forth effort and sacrifice and get it done.

I'd MUCH rather pay the piper in toil, get the 4 yr degree and enter through the same gate that 98% of applicants have gone though, than go to great lengths to try and stand out another way and try to enter through the gate that 2% try and beat that is guarded heavily with pitbulls and torches

Just get the degree!

(And I'm speaking as one who only has a 2 yr degree who plans to get a 4 yr soon BTW)
