Discussion: January 12, 2010 Ask The Headhunter Newsletter
In today’s newsletter: A reader without a college degree wonders how to win a job where a degree is required.
I have ten years of work experience, but I do not have a degree. What is the best way to answer when an interviewer asks why I do not have a degree? I know that my experience is more than sufficient to do the jobs that I am applying for. How should I answer this question? Can I get around my lack of a degree?
Can it be done? Have you done it? How would you advise this reader to tell it to the manager?
How do you say it?
(If you’re manager, when is a college degree negotiable, if at all?)
