[MTC Global] Why Skills Don't Trump Having Degrees?

Unfortunately, I don't think so. A majority of high paying jobs are still reserved for only college graduates to apply to. Even though firms like Google
​, IBM ​
and Ernst & Young have removed the requirement of having a college degree to even be considered for an open position, there are very few people who get hired into these established companies without that piece of paper in their hand.

There aren't even any public statistics on how many individuals are employed in white-collar jobs without a college degree.

I don't mean to suggest that its impossible today to get into a white-collar profession without a college degree. People with the proper skills and a plenty of experience in their field, but no degree, are still able to convince recruiters and hiring managers that they are the right person for the job.

But that group of highly skilled individuals in technology or professional services without a degree are few in number compared to their credential-wielding peers.

​Skills pay the bills but still Degree Rules.
