Do hiring managers care about online degrees?

Views 0 Views    Comments 0 Comments    Share Share    Posted 13-10-2009  
You get a resume from a candidate with the education and qualifications you’re looking for. Do you care if the person’s schooling took place online?

HR managers care less than they used to, according to a recent Society for Human Resources Management survey. Nearly all (90%) of HR managers say online degrees are viewed more favorably that they were five years ago. And individual courses taken online are as credible as traditional courses, according to 68% of HR managers.

But still, more often than not, companies would rather see applicants who’ve attended traditional schools: 63% said, all other things being equal, their organization would hire someone who went to a traditional college over one with an online degree.

What’s your company’s take on applicants with online degrees? Does it make a difference? Let us know your opinion in the comments section below.
