Mann-Lynch said how a degree doesn't exactly get you in the door to a job. Other than a degree, your skills and interests can help you get the job almost guarantee. With a degree are are guaranteed to excel in the work force, but not as likely to get paid as were someone with the skills necessary for that job.
