How Employers View Online, For-Profit Bachelor's Degrees - Jordan Friedman, US News

Recruiters say the negative perception of undergraduate for-profit education that some employers have held in recent years may be starting to shift, and not all are skeptical. "Although I think that still somewhat of a stigma might exist against the for-profit universities, given the current state of the job market today and the low unemployment rates, employers are starting to get really creative and are definitely placing more value on this type of degree than they had in the past, and are much more willing to extend an offer to these applicants," says Amy Glaser, senior vice president of Adecco Staffing, a worldwide employment agency. Employer views also vary depending on the program, Glaser says, and an applicant's undergraduate education is just one part of the hiring decision.
