Job experts say a degree can go a long way, but the right one can go even further

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - Degrees are more than just a simple piece of paper. For prospective employers, a degree is a stamp of approval. So, having a degree can mean the difference between landing that big job and still reading the classifieds.

Our career experts with the Goodwill Career Center of Yuma want those on the job hunt to get the edge on the competition to know which degrees could prove to be more valuable.

Courtney Nelson is the Senior Director of Marketing for the Goodwill Career Center. He said "universal" degrees are more versatile.

According to Nelson, a business degree is one of the most versatile degrees out there. Students are taught everything and anything about business, making them a catch to would-be employers.

Another universal degree is communications - a skill set that is often key in any business. Nelson notes that current trends show a computer science degree is the most in-demand, since most companies now rely heavily on technology.
