The question is can HR managers focus more on experience than degrees in Nigeria? Let's take the interesting life story of a Young Man as a case study. 

"When I resigned from my last job, I really wanted another one, A marketing communication/Brand Management Job. I searched and searched and nothing was forthcoming. I even offered to work for some firms I loved for free, yet none wanted to take me on. 

They all wanted a Masters Degree holder. None wanted an experienced candidate with vast industry knowledge. 

I started freelance brand consulting and it's been fun advising small businesses and start-ups. 

Today, I can say that the state of mind is far different, i still wouldn't mind working for a brand I love, I must love the brand before i can work in the firm, but now it's a case of hire me if you want me for my experience, spare me the high end English or I would love to go sit in the park and get some air."

We believe experienced counts a lot we it comes to hiring. What did you think?
