Consulting is a weird place. Just recently I had a customer decide they wanted to hire me full time (I’ve been consulting with one of their internal divisions for awhile, and the company wanted to make me available to everyone) and they balked when they saw I didn’t have a degree. But then I turned the interview into a pitch for using my consulting services for everyone instead of hiring me and the worry about my degree went out the window. Somehow it seemed ok to have a contractor without a degree but not an employee.
