Good luck getting a job as a financial analyst... Every single one of those jobs I've looked at requires a degree and at least 2 years of experience. The good news is that part isn't always necessarily hard and fast. They will lower that for the right people, you just have to work a heck of a lot h...

Of course, over half the nation works for minimum wage or a unlivable wage. The characteristics that are listed for ...

How can employers know about social skills when they're just flipping through the resumes? I agree with the OP-experience is far more valued than education. Is that the way it should be? Maybe.
