Well, I think it's not the norm, perhaps true for IT...

BUT in many industries (e.g. investment banking), to fulfill front office positions, education is the first item that many recruiter will use as cut-off.
Sure. I was just giving an example of how I'm dealing with my current recruiting efforts. I'm Not hiring an IT person.

I do know several people in IT who have no degrees only lots of certificates. My guess is they are older than the OP. Hiring practices change as the employment environment changes.

When I moved to Switzerland before the Free Movement treaty practically anyone with a work permit found a job quickly. Not so anymore as the pool of candidates is enormous!
