I’m looking for a new job, working remotely, that doesn’t require a Bachelor’s. (I’m currently going back to school to get one, as I only have an Associate’s in Mathematics right now)
I had positions in private sector that allowed me to supplement having a degree with experience but not in public sector. I’ve seen coworkers get positions they aren’t able to do simply because they have a degree and then leave a mess for me to clean up but I’m not allowed to have the position. Any suggestions?

In many very technical jobs, you must have a degree; in some other jobs, you can substitute a degree for experience; in many jobs, no degree is required. If you have the experience only, you should be able to apply to most positions for which a degree is not required, AND you have the experience to qualify for. You can now filter for remote jobs in USAJobs and you can still enter "location" in the location search field to bring up "location negotiable after selection" jobs.

For government contractor jobs, a lot of our positions don't require a degree, or we can use years of experience in lieu of a degree. My assumption is if contractors don't need it, the govies don't need it.

I had a hard time finding a private sector job without a degree. I have 20 years of experience but no degree = not qualified. It was really discouraging. But I didn't give up and ended up with a great job.

You're right. For the vast majority of jobs, no degree required. Although, anything that sets you apart from the competition is helpful.

Is there a term used when you apply for a job with a change in title, the recruiter tells you you seem more in line with an “experienced” title of what you currently are, makes you go through 4 interviews, and when you get told they want you they also slide in that the salary you wanted at the beginning was for a senior role and since you are now applying as experienced the highest they can go is bs compared to your current salary
