My friend is looking for advice for a job application. He went to a
four-year college and majored in the field in which he currently works.
However, due to life circumstances at the time, he never finished his degree
and is a few credits short. He has solid experience and talent in his field.
In filling out a job application, how does he handle the Education section?
Does he leave it blank, or put in an asterisk and say "Ask me"? Does he try
to fit in an explanation in that tiny space in the application form?
He's got it covered on his resume (he mentions the school without stating
that he has a degree) and he's confident that he can explain it sufficiently
in an interview, but how does he make sure that his job application doesn't
wind up on the wrong pile?
