    I agree a proven track record can go a long way :D University shows you've studied but a proven track record shows you will be able to apply

    I'd rather hire a guy with experience rather than a nobody with a piece of paper.

    By fake degree i meant paying someone from university to get actual degree. He can get it on so many places. Studying is waste of time and years of life. Everything in this fucking world is fake, and there are no people who made big money legally, but thats what rich fucks who control the world and the system u live in wants u to do. They want you to go to elementary, high school, university, get a job 8-5 and work until ur 70 and then die like a dog without asking too many questions how everything functions.

    Do no waste time with university. Buy degree, and move on.

    Not Always.
    But when we are looking for some big companies and for a specific level of positions they do have their own norms to follow in that case its an exception and you do need a certificate.

    I think degree is for proffesions like medicine, architecture, law. For digital marketing best option is short weekly/monthly courses which also might provide some paper of certificate. Or you can prove by your own experience as people talk here. I work as a programmer without any education and without being a geek or old coder. I just picked some course went thhrough it, built some websites as a portfolio, got an internship and they kept me after that, im still working here

    I asked this for a relative. Different people have different goals and mindsets. Some are afraid to take any risk at all which is there when you are doing things independently.

    That means the person is not confident in his abilities!

    Simple as that!

    I can understand the Indian mentality but why?

    It can be because of many reasons. For instance, to even get married in some parts of the world, you need to have a job. An IMer is avoided for marriage. Sad but true.

    First things first, if you are in INDIA, common folks/industries require a degree to put you up for a job. They don't see anything else. But again there is no centralized governing body that gives a degree for digital marketing.

    The trend is now changing and new brands are preferring SKILLS over DEGREES. So ultimately it is your choice, you want skills or degrees?

    Oh yeah, keep believing that.

    LOL what a moron. Best of luck, Bill Gates.


    ALSO

    Don't offer garbage advises when you have no fucking idea what you are talking about. Keep it to yourself please. It is pretty clear that you are un-employed, and probably un-employable too. If somebody followed your original advice, he/she would be in lots of trouble.

    It depends where are you applying.

    Most of MNCs would only offer a job to people who hold a degree even though they are skilled in their profession. The only exception they might make is if you've been working in the industry for many years and a good amount of experience then it saves them time and money to groom you so they might hire you, otherwise it's always a no.

    For SME's it mostly depends on how well you do in your interview and the impression you create with your appearance and knowledge.

    Digital Marketer?
    The person who doesnt even know what a user agent is, the person who doesnt know the difference between a Ipv4 and Ipv6?
    The person who doesnt even know what is doing besides copy some settings of a fake guru on Youtube and gambling with luck and other people business?

    I call the majority Digital BStters, they dont even know anything technical about what they do, tell me..

    Would you trust a doctor that learned empirically?
    Woud you risk your life or the life of the ones you love?

    There is a reason that some academic procedures are being made, and NO I am not talking that empirical knowledge is useless, dont use abnormal genius as example as its one in 1000.

    Man I thought you guys were kidding, almost got ruined because of that same type of person lies and BS, thanks I learned the lesson.

    Also.. using examples of rich guys that studied on Top US universities and that were rich isnt something realistic.
