It sucks big time that they pass you over because of a basically worthless piece of paper that you get from a university or college.

My employer went through that phase a few years ago when the Vice President of the company decided that having a grade 12 education wasnít good enough and impilmented a hiring policy that they would hire those with post secondary education over people with actual experience. Turns out that his idea backfired on him big time not only were we not getting people those that were hired for the most part didnít last very long because even though they were well paid they didnít want to do work not in their field of expertise.

Ever since that post secondary clause was taken out of the primary hiring wording we have actually been able to hire people who are not afraid to get their hands dirty.

It is sad though that more and more employers value post secondary education over actual experience in todayís job market

I hope that things will work out for you in the long run
