Q & A

Do some employers penalize you for not attending college or not having a degree even though it’s not a requirement for the job and you are well-qualified? Also, because you‘re over 40? Can something be done about it or you just have to accept it?

    • I don’t think college education carries much weight in my workplace.   We are paid pretty much by productivity.  Those of us over 40 are the best workers and we‘re well compensated for the work we do.  

      I would assume it is very different in other types of work though.

    • This probably depends on the field you‘re in.  I’m in the consulting field and the majority of the people I work with have Master’s degrees.  I can’t remember if that is an actual requirement but I would think it is at least preferred.

      My particular company is known for hiring people with just a phone interview too.  And they have hired people over 40 recently.
