I just finished my resume and I didn't even bother with an education section because all I have is 2/5 of an arts degree.
I had talked with admissions of a good school in my city last year about doing a CS degree there but the whole thing was so gross I couldn't go through with it. They're really just taking your money and your dreams and churning you out. It was when they insisted I wouldn't be able to complete the degree without at least 4 electives - electives I'd have to pay for - that I walked out.
But I'm realizing that if the hiring manager is only going to spend 30 seconds on your resume, having one line that 'proves' I know what I'm doing is a lot easier for them than going through my website and my github and my client testimonials etc.
I am going to complete CS50 with the certificate so I can put that on at least. I'm also going to talk to the comp sci department specifically, to see if we can work something out. I JUST paid off my student loans from art school and I'm not super keen to go back into debt.
Any other ideas? Am I bumming myself out over nothing? Is one good project worth as much to my resume as an education?
