I left school with a philosophy degree. More amazing than the fact that I got *any* job is the fact that I got into a well-paying and interesting field like computers. Basically, I went to jobs when I was looking that were obviously out of my league on paper. But I would wow them in the interview with pure desire to do the work. That can go a long way.
in reply to Formal Education Required?
If I may, let me tell you a few places to look where they are less strict on qualifications, but will be long on getting exp on that resume:
- non-profits - can't pay, but man will you work!
- graveyard tech support
- small retail/mom&pop ops - often hire the nicest person rather than the best resume
Hope that helps...
