    Alejandro Matias Ravasio That's hilarious, considering those are highly-desired jobs that pay very well. Anyway, the relation of education to experience can be very interesting. I went to culinary school for awhile, and I noticed a couple of things: 1. a degree was not a substitute for kitchen experience, but at the same time 2. without a degree, people would hit a cap on how much money they could make. For example, a su chef without a degree might never make more than $15 an hour, whereas, one with a degree is a good candidate for a salaried employee.

    But college doesn't give you experience...it gives you an education, which is completely different.

    The vast majority of the places I've worked accepted 4 years of college as at least 3 years of actual experience. If I spent 4 years designing graphics and animating, that's 4 years of experience of designing graphics and animating whether I was being paid or not.

    Kristi Noel Beck Meh, that's one example of one industry. As an employer, I'd rather hire the candidate with 3 years actual experience as a manager than somebody who went to business school and has a bachelor's degree. Real world experience trumps college experience.

    Alejandro Matias Ravasio Yeah, a real profession that makes me over 50 grand a year (not including freelance) and I've only been out of college for 2 years. *shrug*

    Ben Miller That's a happy medium, but that's the rare minority. In what most cases are, real world experience will trump college "experience". I'd rather have somebody who actually knows how to make a high quality pot roast from experience than somebody who learned it from a book or a controlled kitchen environment. I have been to college, got a degree in business management, and trust me...my degree did not prepare me as well as I thought it would for management.

    You stop applying for the job you think you deserve and get in a job at a place you want to work. Then get the job you want after you are there awhile.

    That's an easy one. You call your favorite uncle, Tell your uncle he's now your former manager or is a small business owner in the field you need experience in, and that you worked for him for 3-5 years. Then you simply lie to your future employer. Like a boss.
