It is bothersome that a college degree is more important than demonstrable skills.

"You're so smart! Where'd you go to college?"
"I didn't."

    As if the only way to learn was to pay someone to read to you 🤣

    Idk I just don't think it's as bad as it used to be like 5 years ago. People are starting to give less shits about it, as long as the job gets done. But that's just my two cents.

    @jhh2450 when the old traditional folks all die off or go into retirement, they take their antiquated ideals with them. Progression is when new generations replace the old ones.

    If that question actual matters instead of being an automatic response - it's a good signal that you don't want to work with that company

    Remember, to get a job you need to pay someone to teach you something you can learn for free online

    Watched chappie, wanted to make AI.

    Go to Uni.

    This is complicated. And boring.

    Ah Heck it, I'll just buy a roomba.

    @antic what if by then, your new generation boss doesn't hire you because you're a decade older and your references are too old school? I'm sorry Mr but you're just not the right cultural fit for us.

    I have only ever encountered a handful of postings that had a hard requirement for a college degree. And they never required a technology-focused major. Just a degree. You could have majored in expressive dance. The remaining 99.8% had no arbitrary degree requirement. So if I've ever seen the requirement, I just laugh, tell them good luck staffing it, and move on to employers who are serious.
