Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi all ive been planning for about 18 months now in the oil and gas industry, and im currently doing a HNC in construction, then considering doing a degree in construction management, looking around the job pages there doesn’t seem to be too many companies looking specifically for people with a degree, they seem more interested in experience.
if anybody has any advice on whether or not its worth doing, i would like to hear your opinion

Hi Craig,

The best this is to find a university program that is compatible with your company requirements and let them pay for the education. This way both sides benefit from paying for the education and spending time learning something that you will use in the future.

Good luck,
