What is more important in a professional setting, your overall experience in the setting or your documented credentials like a degree or certification?

Answered by Ashlyn, Hiring Expert at Worthington Industries, on September 12, 2017

Hello!
I think this very much depends on the type of organization you're going into. Here, we highly value expereince within the field rather than the credentials of a degree or certification. While in some situations a particular degree/certificate is required, but I would say that experiences typically plays a larger role that your degree.
