Okay, I know Jobcase is mainly supposed to be for looking for jobs and finding answers and all that, but does anyone know where I can go to college to get my degree in Creative Writing? Do you know if ASU or NAU is a good place to go for that? I'm about to graduate high school in June, and I don't know what college would be best for the subject I want to study for. #college #degree #creativewriting #advice #education

I have had multiple interviews where the expected a degree for graphic design and i felt like it would be considered discriminatory to not hire someone with 10+ years experience and talent. Not just in my field of skills but anyone who has had experience in what they do. Do you have this problem? #experience #degree #graphicdesign #talent #skilled #talk

A college degree used to be a necessary Key to Success but the alarmingly high cost tuition, rising workplace competition for entry-level jobs, under-employment, and poor staring pay-rates has raised some important questions about the value of a college degree.

So, what do you think, is earning a college degree a good thing, a bad thing, or indifferent?

Effective, April 1, 2016 I was laid off from my employer was a business need. Unfortunately, the executives are paid bonuses and the other staff suffers without being compensated in eight years or more. I was lucky to land the job after coming from a corporate background. Initially, my mindset was to add value and be an individual contributor. I had taken a low pay-cut, because I was "HUMBLE" and more importantly thankful to be offered work. At any rate...I'm finding that its required to have a degree to answer telephones. I'm seasonal and have strong working ethics. Experience doesn't play a paramount role in even being afforded an interview. The climate is very challenging trying to seek work these days. After reading some of the testimonies, I realized that I'm not alone with the frustrations of trying to find work. I'm very customer service driven, great interpersonal skills, problem solving, anticipating ones needs, can do attitude and will support the mission/vision of any employer. I was the first point-of-contact at the largest non-profit organization. I paid bills, processed expense reports, front-desk receptionist, supported C-Suite and upper management team, office upkeep, etc. I too just want to work and make my contributions to society. I don't want to work and make contributions to society. PRAYER IS THE KEY!!!!!!

Hi Shonda, I recommend that you follow your passion no matter mistakes made in the past. Have you seen the Sentencing Laws and felony discussions going on in congress these days, Obama Calls for Less Prison in Overhauling Sentencing Laws. There's bipartisan agreement that things need to change in this system. There even talking about removing the ‘felony’ question from the application.

Depending on the charge and the age of the charge, you might be able to get it sealed or expunged for little to no cost. You may want to research that by contacting the county clerk office.
