The time most of us waste getting a degree creates networks of contacts that can bypass interviewing at all or get you interviews and work you wouldn't have known about. The actual qualification is sometimes a useful bonus. All but one of the most interesting gigs I've had down the years came from personal contacts and "interviewing" was usually just an excuse to go to the pub.

For a career in IT support you're probably right about it being wasted time though.
