All bosses want employees who will offer up solutions to ongoing problems and go above and to get the job done. When you can point to real life measurable examples of your skill in achieving goals, in introducing innovation, and in adding to the bottom line, you will distinguish yourself from all the other candidates…regardless as to whether they have better academic credentials. A degree has diminishing returns over time compared to colleagues who may or may not have graduated but who are making a difference. Just make sure your pitch and your resume highlight these successes.
