As a Recruitment Executive I see resumes all day long (as you might imagine.) If someone does not have a BS/BA degree then for education I will often see things like Graduate of the Dale Carnegie course or Toastmasters, etc. It’s not the same.

Millennials often seek a higher purpose when it comes to their work.

This is even truer if you are a lesser-known organization that has little success when you must recruit side-by-side against better-known competitors.
In most businesses, this is really what the boss or a client wants from us. Results.
I’m pretty sure that right at this very moment you have your nose at the grindstone and you are sincerely trying to achieve the results that are demanded by your boss or client.
