What's more important these days, a good education or work experience?


With so many college graduates having little experience and so few jobs available, how will they fare? I still say getting the degree is most important.

    The need for work experience also backs why it's important to have good lab experience in degree programs whenever possible!

    Great points about how the value of solid experience has changed the workforce. Priorities certainly have changed. The degree holds more weight and does give needed credibility than experience alone. Thanks for answering.

    You've hit on all the points very well that make having a degree or work experience a lot more complicated than one would think. Thanks for offering those important perspectives.
