The NY Times has a great article today, “Skills Don’t Pay the Bills” by Adam Davidson. It is a relief for me. Sometimes I feel like I’m screaming into the wind when I categorically refute the idea that more degrees equal more and better jobs.
The article reminded me of a similar piece I blogged here months ago. The blog post was commissioned by my twitter friend Douglas Edwards after I went on one of my (in)famous twitter rants about credentialing. He said I should write it so he could cite it in his mega annotated online bibliography project. I thank him for the nudge.
Onward and upward.
