How to get the previous answers ?

Hi @Mahmoud-Moustafa-Ahm !

I think where you live will play a significant role in how companies view degrees.

For example, in the states, it is possible to get a developer job without a cs degree but in other parts of the world a degree plays a significant part.

Having a cs degree will make it easier to land interviews for that first job. Once you get that first job then it will be easier to land another one.

I live in the states and my degree is in music but I was able to land a developer job through the connections I made in the industry.

Hope that helps!

Thanx its already helps .

Is your intention to find a job in the International job market, within the Middle East, or are you planning on trying to stay in Egypt.

Everyone I know from Egypt works in Saudi, or Dubai, granted none of them are in Tech… But they have been forced to take jobs and reside outside of Egypt, do to the Economy.
