    • Hi guys, I'm asking for a friend who's been working in food pharmaceutical industry lab side qc. Do companies accept degree in other area of studies, say if he were to do part time degree in economics. I mean will his pay rise? Or is it strictly no go for someone who has an unrelated degree asking for degree holder pay scale. Also, he's been working there for 4years. What's the practice like outside. Anyone from HR side care to clarify. Thank you.

    • Look who's talking again. You never went high. You immediately said ketchup and tomato sauce stupid analogy that was clearly not high at all. So don't come and talk to me you ever went high. I was simply politely asking for a reply to the qn above . If you don't have the answers then don't reply. Simple as that. Don't need to complicate things and be a manipulative person. Thanks bye.

    • Point is I've met a few people, one being my poly lecturer with a degree in life sciences but masters in business and something. She was still offered a place to teach in a polytechnic despite having a masters degree from another course. 

    • So I'm asking as to how pervasive this culture of hiring is having to take a post graduate or undergraduate studies in something that is not related just to advance your pay scale. Also, for polytechnic lecturers would require at least 5 years of industrial experience in order to teach. So I don't think my argument is stupid.

    • Very often you don't have to be in that major to be working in that related field, for example working in the IT line, many computer programmers have a degree in mathematics.  I guess it all boils down to the candidate with a mind that can apply existing scientific knowledge to develop more practical applications, for example: technology or inventions, aka applied science.
