My late teens and all of my 20s were pretty much a debacle school wise. I managed to get about 2 years of college finished during this time period. Meanwhile, I landed in a field that I enjoy, and have accumulated a huge amount of experience over the last decade. I've never lied about the amount of education that I have, but as I've been hired in more senior positions, it's become much more of a hurdle to explain why my experience made me a safe bet without a bachelor's degree.
I finally got organized this year, and am on track to graduate in the next 18 months. How should I reflect this on my resume?
