The President of Google started a trend in Business of hiring, not based on a Degree, but based on accomplishments.
“Do you have a webpage?”
“Do you have any published works?”
“Have you built anything that I can download and use?”
“What do you have?”
“A Master’s Degree.”
“Get out of my Office!”
If you want to write, then write. If you want to make games, then do so. If you want to be an inventor, nobody is stopping you from entering a Patent Office or filing a Patent Online.
If you need experience to get into the job market, then make it yourself.
That is the trend.
