A recent LinkedIn post of mine attracted responses from a wide variety of degree’d professionals — biologists, film, ethics, psychology. I asked what from their college education was most valuable today. None currently work in their degree area of specialization, but all could easily give great examples of how what they learned in college applied widely to their lives and professions.
Most position descriptions list a relevant college degree as a requirement. Just exactly which college degree would NOT be relevant? The ability to think, learn, and apply wisely coupled with insatiable curiosity is more valuable than a specific degree.
