Do I need a college degree to work in the federal government?


In recent years employers have started to question which jobs should require a college diploma.

The idea of a college degree being a necessary asset for job seekers began during the 1980s according to research conducted at Harvard Business School. In a 2017 report, researchers found this “degree inflation” resulted in a “degree gap” where people working jobs that now required college degrees didn’t have a degree themselves. Managers searching for candidates with digital skills and social abilities were biased toward college graduates, according to Joseph Fuller, one of the report’s authors.
