Is the absence of a degree limiting my career opportunities?
I have spent the last 15 years of my career working either as the owner of my own business or working in executive roles for other companies. Although I chose not to take the academic route, I have always been very successful in my career, until now.
Over the last couple of years, it has been more of a challenge to find companies that are willing to pay me what I am accustomed to. I’m wondering if despite my years of experience, my degreeless CV doesn’t stand up against my university-educated counterparts. SWOT Team readers, is it time for me to head back to school?
