  • Question

  • In order to work in some big comapny like Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Apple, etc. as Software Engineer, do you have to have degree from Computer Sience in US, or you can apply for job with any degree you have in computer sience/software engineer if the degree has an accreditation in the world?

  • A giant tech company is more likely to have the capability to hire based on merit and demonstrated ability, so a particular degree level may or may not be a firm requirement.

    In general though, any company hiring for entry-to-mid level IT/Software Development is looking for a US Bachelors degree or foreign equivalent.  So just ensure that any foreign degree is accepted in the US as a Bachelors-equivalent.

    Since this post isn't about the VB language it is technically off-topic and since I'm not aware of a more appropriate forum for this kind of question within the developer network, I'll move the post to the Off-Topic forum.
