Re: Reality check for the President

My experience with the CS degree requirement was that it's BS. I was certainly brought in for interviews for positions that nominally required qualifications I didn't possess such as a four-year CS degree; I can no longer remember the specific qualifications for the jobs I've worked at, otherwise I would say I was hired despite my lack of on-paper qualifications. On the other hand, having a degree or certification is useful for checking certain boxes when you either lack experience or are facing hot competition for a position.
