Nice work, as they say, if you can get it. Make no mistake,
though, some employers (including the New York consulting
company I once worked for, the international consulting company
I once worked for [one of what they used to call the "big six",
but there've been mergers since then], and the organization I currently
work for, are not interested if you don't have a degree. Doesn't
matter what other qualifications you might have; the resume goes
right in the garbage.
