“You have great experience with Auto CAD and Microsoft Visio,” I said to the interviewee. “Really impressive knowledge. Was your minor in I.T. or something?”
“Oh, no sir,” he said. “I didn’t study anything technical in college. I have a degree in Journalism. I taught myself Auto CAD and Visio and I am studying to take the Cisco Certified Network Associate exam in a couple weeks, but I have been out of college for years. Just wasn’t for me. I learn whatever I want, now, through the web. I learned Auto CAD from YouTube videos and web tutorials.”
A college degree is a means to an end, but it is not the only means to the only end. You can teach yourself anything someone else can.
