When you come across a job listing or advertisement that says "no degree or experience necessary," what does that really mean? Generally, it means that the employer is open to hiring people who do not have a traditional college degree or any specific experience in the position they're hiring for.

Additionally, this can be an entry-level position or a job where the future employer is willing to train you for that specific job. While it's not stated anywhere, it is assumed that a high school diploma or GED may be required.
