Is it worth getting a degree?

I was considering going back to get a degree in this field is it worth it?



Possibly. I don’t have one. Made it to the top of several companies over the years. I dropped out of my degree, brokeup with my girlfriend, moved out of home and got a job all in the same week and didn’t look back. 35 years later it’s been irrelevant for me BUT that was before CV bots existed filtering all the job applications…. then again I only used a CV a few times, the rest of the time it was word of mouth referrals. If you can get in the door, are good at what you do, play well with others, the network you build can keep you employed. Get a degree because you’re interested in the topic not for what job it might get you short listed for I reckon. Good luck


Certs generally expire. A degree doesn’t. Worth is in the eye of the beholder. Would you use the degree? I can say I use mine. But I’ve also used my certs. I believe you need both myself. But that’s just my opinion.
