US employers slow to accept online degrees (Aug 14/08)

While US employers and hiring managers say online degrees are more acceptable now than in recent years, job candidates with traditional university and college credentials are favoured, according to Vault Inc.’s 2008 Online Degrees Survey. While 83% of managers surveyed said online degrees were more acceptable today than 5 years ago, only 19% have hired an applicant possessing only an online degree. Over half said online degrees were as acceptable as bachelor’s and graduate degrees, but not as credible. 63% said they favoured candidates with traditional degrees, up from 55% in a previous survey.
