Default Re: What is degree's long-term effect on a career?

3- I.E. How much are those degrees respected
4- and needed?
5- Well, I guess that all or at least 3 out of 4 definitely have job opportunities, but how am I likely to be accepted for an art or design position with any of them?
6- And how would I compare to other workers with more relevant degrees?
1- Yes. Anything is possible.
2. A lot.
3. It depends on who the respecter (or disrespecter) is, and what the situation is.
4. It depends. Needed by whom, for what?
5. If you want an art job, get an art degree and build a spectacular portfolio. If you want a design job, get any degree, choose an entry pathway, and build an excellent resume.
6. That depends on you.
