Associate Degree In Radiology,importnace Of Degree ?
Q: I was wondering how important a degree is once you have experience. I want
to finish my degree, 2 years left, but have friends saying to just get an
associates degree or a certificate of technology. I have Exchang and TCP/IP
left before finishing my MCSE, and have plans to get a CCNA once finished.
I am just wondering how important that degree is once you have 2 or 3 years
of experience. What is your opinion?
A:A four-degree may not seem important to you, but it might help your spelling and grammar, among other things. If a job is all you want, then your friends are correct. People who claim a college degree is worthless are usually the ones who doesn't have one. Don't listen to them. College degree will help you to 1)get a job of your choice and 2)improve your opportunity for advancement once hired. Lastly, but not leastly, college education will enable you to think logically and make you an intellectually more rounded person, which is probably the most valuable reason why you should get your college degree. I have a 4 year BS in Computer Engineering from an actual university, and almost 20 years of experience. Potential employers (in Pittsburgh, at least) tend to look right past this and say "when will you finish your MCSE?" This is particularly annoying since the degree cost fifty thousand dollars and four years; and though MCSE varies, it takes considerably less time, costs less, and has been accomplished by those who are good at memorizing. (Please do not mistake this post for me knocking MCSE's... it's the recruiters that need some enlightenment...) I know don't make hiring decisions in the computer industry based on someone's degree. But I know plenty of people who will toss your resume straight into the garbage if you have a header that says "Importnace"--no matter _what_ your degree or experience says.
