Default Who has a degree?

Was wondering how many people actually have got a degree?

Who hasn't but still managed to get a job.

My husband has twenty years experience but no degree, as he came through the trades route to his position.

We are getting conflicting info so thought we'd ask you guys.

Thanks

I have a degree in Politics and master's degree in International Shipping and Logistics Management, a Postgraduate Diploma in Law and a Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice, but I'm probably one of the lowest paid posters on here.

If your Husband has come through the Trades route and has managerial experience he should have no problem out here

I've got relevant specific qualifications but no degree. Not a problem for me, others may find different?

yea, of sorts.....and no it makes not a jot of difference in my line of work...

All it proves is that you can learn to a certain level.

15 years of not managing to kill myself kinda proves that i actually know what im doing..

(Hope that last statement doesnt come back to haunt me)

nah just means too long spent and too many Uni's over 2 different spells.
2 spell means savings have been replaced by debt and I ended up back in my old profession earning a lot less than I was before I went and studied law.
