Discussion on: Do you have a university degree?

I don't have a degree. It can make it harder to get employed because some HR departments just require it and move on. I frequently have to point this out and have the requirement removed when I'm hiring.

Degrees used to be a nightmare, too rigid. Now they are really good. The learning, the skill and the ability are what count though - you just need to find employers who can see that and find a way to be sure you have it.
