Agree - I'm having the same experience, but I don't even have a college degree of
any type, only a HS Diploma. ( and some Certifications. )
May I propose that employers today have far better tools they use to identify potentially productive workers when they seek to recruit new hires. They don't
just look at job history and education as they used to do, but rather, consider
credit history, business activities, medical and legal records, and a wide variety
of other indicators.
Employers are learning how to identify and recruit high productivity workers at all
levels, from engineers like you to the janitors.
Now, if we can just get pay for performance.....
