BrandoComandoIt's true that in a conversation you can 100% weed out who knows their stuff and who doesn't. However, in order to get that interview, you gotta submit your resume. If there's no relevant education or work experience, that resume goes straight into the trash. Doesn't matter if the applicant is a savant or not. You need proof and that's where a degree comes in.
Why would a hiring manager waste an interview on someone with zero relevant education when there are multiple other applicants with degrees? That's not how the corporate world works.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAA as a really smart guy once said, college is about socializing and partying, and employers know this so they know they have to teach every new hire all the stuff as if they know nothing, because they do know nothing coming out of college. you learn NOTHING in college that you actually remember, if you are an average person. if you are above average and actually retain what you learn? cool good for you, but your resume doesnt tell the guy maybe hiring you that.
but if you tell them that you studied many topics on your own and list all the topics you are knowledgable in, and say you are happy to have a conversation to prove your knowledge, then ANY employer who is worth working for will be MORE interested in you than some random guy with a college degree. college degrees are all the same, but if you show you actually are responsible enough to learn on your own and study on your own, any good employer will LIKE that.
you seriously dont believe me cause you never even tried it, and because you dont know how to write a resume that is good that shows you didn't go to college but are smarter than someone who did.
seriously any good employer will talk to you, just call them, and in the first 20 seconds of the call, if you haven't impressed them with your knowledge and skill, you are probably too dumb for the job anywaty!
