James Neave, head of data science at Adzuna, said: “Today, many employers are recognizing the value of self-taught or on-the-job skills, and they are willing to look beyond formal education when evaluating candidates.
“Job seekers without a degree should highlight their accomplishments throughout their careers and practical skills relevant to the job ad in their CVs.
“Consider emphasizing industry certifications and job-related training.”
