Getting Hired with an Online Degree

Seven years ago, a study was released in which 70% of employers said that they felt online degrees were less worthwhile than those that come from traditional schools. However, in the seven years since then, online degrees have become more mainstream and widely-recognized, and now most employers agree that they are just as worthwhile as traditional degrees. Consider this information from Encarta:

When asked directly, well-known Fortune 500 companies such as Intel and Wal-Mart said they'd accept online degrees, provided they come from regionally accredited programs.

Of course there will always be people--recruiters included--who are have reservations about new kinds of learning. But, for some perspective, consider a survey by the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC) that found that almost 70 percent of corporate supervisors rated the value of a distance degree as "just as valuable" or "more valuable" than resident-school degrees in the same field.
