Most jobs, not all….. but most, that you recruit for require a college degree. This is a basic first requirement for a lot of searches that recruiters work on. Most of the time, required means required. Must have.

Sometimes, degree required means degree preferred. For the right candidate with the right skills and background, we can deal with them not having a degree.

Two thirds of adults in the US do not have a college degree. That’s a startling statistic when you spend much of your life looking for people with certain skills that have to have a degree. What that tells is, degree required does seriously limit the candidate pool. And, changing to degree preferred will seriously expand the candidate pool.
