Used to work...
... in a very small company where the rest were all titled physics engineers. One of them sighed that a cs degree meant you knew something practical. Hah.
Now-a-days titles have much devaluated, but having one, any one, means you can be stuffed into middle management if nowhere else. In fact, empty titles are a hot commodity in, say, the higher echelons of government(!). With luck the course wasn't crap and you actually have some skills and know how to use your brain to pick up whatever's necessary to make a living.
Me, I'm having great fun doing too many of those free online (stanford and others) courses, and maybe I'll figure out along the way to start my own company. Having burned out horribly and a protracted recovery the hard way means there's now a hole in my CV big enough to ensure no recruiter, heck no HR bod, will ever recruit or hire me. While the people that drove me into burn-out all but begged me back for my skills. Bitter? Of course. But while anecdotes do not data make, success has very little to do with raw skills, intelligence, or the 'right' industry. It's starting with some formal education paper, then steadily getting hired, building a long and impressive-looking CV, while substance takes a back seat. For that extra touch, regularly get a new, shiny, industry certification and make your employer pay for it before you hop to the next job.
If a degree or middle management don't appeal, there's always the basic skills that everybody needs. We need to eat, we want our hair cut. Crops need tending, kids need teaching, and so on, and so forth. Or go in banking. All you need for that is apparently being an utter wanker.
