Lately it seems to be trendy [on LinkedIn] to diss degrees. Quite a lot of “what is better, a degree or experience?” posts… Usually posted by people with 15 years of experience and an MBA. Seriously…. Get real. A degree is a means to land your first job and start earning that experience. Yes, you can get a job and get experience without a degree too, but it’s probably easier if you can show some qualifications. And in some cases it’s mandatory to have the right degree? Who do you trust to do surgery on your dog, a licensed veterinarian with an actual degree? Or somebody who’s “never been to school but I’ve been doing tplo surgery on dogs since I was 16”?
