Dear Evil HR Lady,
What would your advice be to someone who has an associate’s degree, but has risen through the ranks to executive positions and then laid off due to the economy? He has a problem in applying for positions because the ones he is otherwise qualified for require a bachelor’s degree. His plan was to complete an online bachelor’s through a for-profit university that advertises heavily in this area. Would that degree be considered a plus, minus or neutral by HR?
