This data shows employers are looking for experience over college degree

Future is not about your college degree, it is all about skills. In the tech industry, the signs are already visible and companies like Apple are not even looking for a 4-year college degree. This is because the degree is not advanced and does not teach the market trend and technologies. Those who are self-taught or get an on-job training are excelling in their responsive fields. As a freelancer too, the best way to make good money is to learn new skills and advance your career online.

A survey conducted by Stack Overflow has a shocking revelation to the preferences in the IT industry. It is estimated that about 75% of tech workers are self-taught. 39% of tech workers develop new skills with on-job training and only 43% of tech workers have degrees.
