    If the position requires a degree, then you'd never get your foot in the door in the first place. How do you prove yourself if you're never given the chance?

    Ya and each company is different. I work for one of the largest companies in the world 150,000 employees and I won’t even look at someone unless they have a BS or an MS with some certifications. The market is too competitive too competitive.

    The other problem is long term experience is meaningless in many parts of IT/Cyber because of how quickly it changes. Windows 95 experience is moot for example, so someone applying to a position with 20 years of experience has about 15 that are obsolete.

    I'm 26 so I'm a millennial. After rent and all bills I have about $4500 of disposable income. If you live where I live (New England/North East), a 100k salary isn't very hard to achieve for fresh grads.

    Lol your application will never even make it passed the automated system, let alone HR and then the hiring manager. I guess it can work for blue collard jobs or trades work but in the white collard corporate world it's statistically impossible.

    That's really nice your recruiters work with that pool of applicants. I work in big pharma. We don't do that here.

    Yea, that's more up my wifes ally. And I get why a college education is needed in some types of work.
    IMO IT work is blue collar, people in IT don't like to hear that though, it upsets some of them.

    I absolutely agree a lot of IT work is blue collard. Hell, I even consider what I do blue collard work. I only consider very high level (PhD/MD) IT work white collard. And yes, you read that right, we have 'IT' folks that hold MD and PhD in clinical/life sciences.

    That's interesting, seems odd. What are they doing that requires an advanced degree in those particular fields?

    Yeah! The nerve of those old fucks to keep working at a job you want just because they’ve been there and can. Why don’t they realize that you are entitled to their position just because you want it? They should just die already... :rolleyes:

    Hey man, just calling how I see it. I know a few who actually retired on time as millionaires with their lack of college debt, stock options, pension plans and matching 401s. When you're working after all of this when you should be on a beach or a golf course or picking up your grandkids for a playdate, that's what's annoying. Just saying, retire if you can, if you cannot, then that's understood but I personally know much more of the 1st group then I do of the 2nd group..
    Buy an RV and travel the country while you still can drive, life is short.

    Again, you are right to decide how they should live their lives, how much they should have in their accounts, what they should do with it, how they should value their time, and most of all, when they should go.

    A guy like you with your obvious willingness to make those important, self-serving life decisions for others should be running things. Amazing that they don’t just step out of the way for you with those leadership abilities...
