Hi Lurker_Writer,

I take issue with the following statement. I spent 10 years working very hard to attain two university degrees and the pieces of paper which accompanied those degrees represent - to myself and to others - diligence, perseverance, dedication, ability, knowledge and more - traits that garner respect from hiring managers and others. Perhaps not everyone will agree with me on this, but I assert that pieces of paper on the wall, particularly degrees, do represent something and can bring respect.

Again, my two cents.

<rhetorical question>How on earth does a piece of paper hanging on a wall
get you respect?</rhetorical question>.
