Applying for job at EY which requires a BS degree. I have an AS degree, 7 YOE consulting, and 15 YOE total professionally. Does the lack of a BS degree eliminate me from being considered?

Unfortunately, sometimes it is a company policy. My mom runs into this problem all the time. She has 30+ YOE but they can’t get around the fact that she doesn’t have a BS. But it’s definitely worth asking.

This is such a dumb rule. Sorry OP.

I got a job at BIG4 without a degree whatsoever.. I would say part of the trick around that is trying to get to know the hiring team before applying - reach out on LinkedIn and ask for a chat, and say something along the lines of you’d like to know more about the team and that you’re sure you’re the right fit.. it’s helped me with 2 BIG4 job interviews, one with Deloitte which I accepted and one with KPMG which I declined..

@D1 I was contacted by the recruiter via LinkedIn. I am not familiar with this team prior to her contact. Should I still ask? To add some context. My profile shows an incomplete BS degree from 2016. My resume also clearly states it is incomplete so I don't bring it up in the interview process unless they do. Unfortunately, I will not be able to finish due to credit limitations. (I was going to school and working at the same time). I am applying for a Manager role.

I know it did in cyber four years ago. They wouldn’t let me start until I had a degree. Not sure if that is across all service lines. I imagine non-client facing folks do not require one.

EY said long ago you don’t need a degree to get a job there so just give it a shot anyway
