Hi, I’ve been studying, and learning Web development, and Computer science in general. But I can’t help but run into the same brick wall of should I go to college? Everytime I go searching for jobs (mostly just to see what’s out there while I’m focusing on studying) most of the web dev/ computer programming jobs say they require a bachelor’s degree. Some go even as far as putting don’t contact them if you don’t have one.
I know some people have jobs without a computer science degree, and if you are just to great to pass up in any field for the most part you can get a job without a degree (but not even most fresh college graduates are qualified or more than someone in my situation for that matter). I’m confident in what I know as of now and every day as I study it gets even better but I’m still not sure if I’m ready or when will I be ready? Which brings up the question is college a must?
Also please keep in mind college is super expensive and I am an unemployed student who like most people my age don’t have the money and I’m not gonna get student loans.
My point is I see many articles and people talking about getting a Computer programming job without a CS degree but my question is can you get one without a College degree, and what should you do to get it?
On a side note I’m studying Web development first, but my future goal is to get into mobile development or software programming that’s what I really want to do.
If you read all this thank you so much!
If you have advice thank you even more!
