How come a college drop out get the same or maybe higher position than a college graduate?
I've noticed a changed in corperate america. I have a buddy who is a college drop out and a buddy who doesnt even go to college and just go straight to work out of HS. They worked in a Mortgage company. One of them become an Escrow Office making really good money. I saw a guy in my company who got a college degree and just got hired for loan processing. If you dont know what loan processing is, it's just no brainer job sorting documents. A college drop out having a better job then a college graduate? Amazing. A guy can go straight out of highschool and work for a Mortgage company going through temp agencies. So does it mean a college degree is irrelevant?

it depends on a person. I have a simple answer, you don't have to be a college or bachelor degree holder if you don't have a brain; that makes a lot different don't you think? Smart people who knows their way around in corporate America, you are something!
