Why is it so difficult for someone without a degree to get a job?

It is not.

College symbolizes many hours listening, interpreting, inferring, learning, developing, surprising yourself, having a mentor, learning to trust your judgment, correcting course when you fail, FAITH that the work is worth it and, frankly, simply learning to PRESENT and do what is expected of you.

So that's a good amount of hours an employer can assume that you know what you're doing and won't bail out when the going gets tough.

If you were to start your own business, it would mean that you learned the same things about your field and you would master the stresses that accompany that job. Would mean and

If you were to start your own business, it would mean that you learned the same things about your field and you would master the stresses that accompany that job. It would mean that you remained curious, focused, driven by results, and most importantly, you didn't waste it all on something destructive. You always kept your eyes on a higher goal.

So that's what employers are looking for in the people they hire. They seek, in a word, PASSION and PROOF OF PASSION.

You can do it! Forget about excuses, show people your PROOF OF PASSION and the world will open its doors to you.

Good luck.

What is really difficult is getting a job without prior work experience. Hiring someone is a great investment, a lot of resources will go into training someone to be useful on the job. So the employer needs evidence that you can do the job. And the best evidence is that it has done something similar before.

In other words, the first job is the hardest.

And education is a poor substitute for actual work experience. And, by far, it is not the only option. Find a way to have tangible proof that you can do the job, and the title won't be that important. "Yah, I can do it" is not enough. Test it.

In my field, a software engineer, some examples are: contributing to an open source project, having an application published in one of the application stores, making a website for someone, building a robot for fun…. It can all be as good as having a degree to find that first job.

Because employers use your education as an indicator of your work ethic, educational ability, and credibility. It's like an initial indication of who you could be. They don't know you, so they need something familiar to anchor in order to assess who you are. Your school and its reputation usually help you with that. However, I have seen many people succeed without a degree. It's definitely a bonus, but I've learned more through apprenticeships and mentors than from standardized tests and memorizing lectures.

Not having a title is not the problem. Having no skills, the real problem.

There is always time to get better and better, but there is absolutely no excuse not to pursue your interests and / or passions.

A job is not a ticket to success, it is the knowledge you may have that can lead to a successful career.

That doesn't mean that a college degree isn't a great source of education. But it is not for everyone, and there is nothing wrong with that!

Just as there are many successful college graduates, there are many without it (eg Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Richard Brandon…) and many more.

You may or may not develop an interest in college later in life. At least avoid going into debt, if you decide to go to college as much as you can.

For now, look for a specialty or sector that you like and become the best at something. If you are technically inclined, there are many areas that can give you a good career with great six-figure salaries, but you will get back as much as you invest to achieve it. There is always a price!

We are in a time when a high school diploma is not enough to get a good job. Gone are the days when people could earn a “family wage” by working as unskilled or semi-skilled workers on an assembly line.

High school graduates almost without exception need additional education, at a minimum, at a technical and career college or community college to compete in the workforce. These programs offer skills training for positions that require specific skill sets.

This is how the job market is changing in the United States. The completed and marketable four-year college degree is replacing the decades-long high school diploma in the job market in the United States.

Because they have less to offer. The more you have to offer a company, including education, the better and easier it will be for you to find the job you want. That is why we have resumes. By the way, never lie on your resume. Sooner or later they will find out and you might be fired. Not worth it.

I think applying for most decent jobs requires proof that you have the mind and discipline to achieve the scope of the job / goal. If you study yourself ... empower your positive gifts and attributes ... emotional intelligence ... no degree is necessary unless you need the specialized knowledge to be a dentist! Imagination is more powerful than knowledge ... know what you love and what you want ... keep going!

It depends on what you want to do. And where you're geographically speaking AAA travel company still offers pensions and 401k and you just need a great personality to get in and STAY.
