Do Advanced Engineering Degrees Matter?

Did getting that masters or doctorate degree help your career? Fewer than half of tech professionals who have an advanced degree say yes

Job search site Hired asked 1,800 technology professionals that question recently, and 48 percent who hold such a degree think they owe their current job or salary to their degree, with 21 percent not sure and 31 percent indicating that they could have had their same job and salary without it.
