It's been a long time since we did a challenge, so I think it's time to try again. I want to give this a broader range this time and invite everyone in the Hive community to give it a go.
A question that has come up from a few different people about education is whether a degree is relevant these days. I think the answers and thinking with this question will be varied, depending on your culture and situation.
Some ideas/topics that by no means have to be adhered to:
• Do you have a degree in an area that you never ended up going into?
• Do you think an apprenticeship is more useful to teach you workplace skills?
• Or is a degree now the least you need to even get a job at the lowest levels?
