Employers look for employees that will meet the demands of the job. Often those demands require specialized knowledge or a foundation of skills and concepts that come with a college degree or specialization. That isn’t to say that a person couldn’t self-study and have the same skill set, but the universities that have accredited programs by professional standard-setters will have an advantage.

Once on the job, a graduate will come with the fortitude and experience of working through a degree program, with soft skills that requires. Organization, motivation, ability to work in groups, a desire to learn and sacrifice are just some of the traits that a graduate may have over someone that was not able to match the persistence it takes to finish a degree.

The employer may seek workers that have proven their abilities in internships through their majors, and practical experience in a field would be another advantage to the graduate in remaining a valuable part of their work team.
