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.
