5, it's about who you know.
Right now it seems jobs are few and far between. In the long run we all wish the degree we worked so hard for and will be paying off until we are in our later years will come in handy but most times this isn't the case any longer. But hold onto it there may be something that will come along and your resume will look good to the employer!!
In the steel industry, of which I was Director of Technology at an integrated steel mill, associate degrees were "throwaways"; one needed a bachelor of Science degree; better yet MS and PhD degrees were highly favored. So were MBA degrees from prestigious universities, such as the Ivy League schools, and places such as Northwestern Kellogg School of Business, and University of Chicago.<br />
Short answer: Definitely 8-10
I just scan the qualification I want from borrowed certificates,,, Always worked for me!
1 - A useless degree like Communication or Liberal Arts<br />
5 - STEM degree with no experience<br />
7 - Some college with experience<br />
