QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
A detailed answer and analysis of a tough interview question from Matt
& Nan DeLuca, authors of the best selling "Best
Answers to the 201 Most Frequently Asked Interview Questions"
(new edition) and "More
Best Answers to the 201 Most Frequently Asked Interview Questions"
What if a person has
years of experience, but no college degree to back it up?
There are many reasons why
an employer might make a degree a requirement for hiring. One is a
belief that essential training is received in college...writing,
communication, technical skills. Second, the employer may want to
upgrade its staff and believes hiring college grads. Third, to
maintain salary levels and promotional grades, a college diploma is often
used to demarcate different levels. A diploma is often used to
'graduate' from clerical to administrative.
That said, what to do?
Have you purposely not gotten a degree or was it simply not available to
you? Not everyone can attend college...but college is becoming what
a high school degree used to be a requirement, even if it does not give
the holder the practical experience someone like yourself may possess.
You need to make a strong
presentation of your practical skills and first-hand expertise. You
might consider taking classes...many schools offer life credits for your
practical experience so you would not have to start at the
beginning. You may enjoy this educational process. Lastly, you
will probably have more success with a line manager...someone who actually
does the work...rather than HR/Personnel. HR typically looks for the
check-off points in a resume or in an interview, seeking to exclude or
include individuals who pass the stated requirements. Line
managers, however, typically look for potential and practical
experience. You might try directing your resumes to these
people. If you can pass the gatekeeper, you will have a better
shot. The question you might ask is "Why is a degree essential
to the position?" and have strong responses to counter their stance.
