Here’s what to expect from this episode:
Should you get a master’s degree in instructional design? While having a degree can look good on paper, if you’re planning to go into corporate ID, then a master’s degree may not be the best option.
In this episode, I’m going over why you don’t need a master’s degree to succeed in corporate instructional design. I’ll share the pros and cons of having a degree and what you should do instead to land your first job.
- The purpose of a master’s degree and when it is valuable
- Where degrees fall short and what corporate employers are looking for
- The scenario where a master’s degree may help to get a corporate ID job
- Showing what you can do from a practical perspective
