Thats a really great thing that he is having o much interest in computer languages. I know it will not be advisable to go for degree, neither i would suggest you for that. Just go with your SQL classes, learn it from core. And you can start trying for some career and jobs forum. They really provide good jobs.

@mseagles:  Companies dont necessarily hire based on his college degree. I’d say he put on his resume the certificates that he’s gotten, as well as write out examples of the work that his accomplished in the IT field.  I would move onto pharm since it will be where the money is at! Again, experience matters, not necessarily the degree, so if he’s great at what he does, he can prove it to the next employer!

@mseagles:  Get as many certifications that he can! Look at the type of job postings of  he’s interested in and look at the certifications that they require.

He should start going to industry events, conferences and anything similar that he can put on his resume (and weekend workshops and other things like that too). Basically this just communicates on a resume that the applicant is up to date with education and very involved in their industry. He should network heavily, as much as possible!

@KoiKove:  Ditto this.  If a degree isn’t feasible right now, the next thing I look at is certs!
