    I often drop my high powered MBA but keep my MS in CS on my resume when and where it makes sense. Yeah, you can become over certified, over educated and looking for another position ASAP types. Really, been on both sides of that argument if not deskspace on that one. Particularly having recently separated from the service (leadership and that above MBA) during a recession and little IT experience. Wasn't a winning combo till I dropped the MBA for a while.

    No, its not duplicitous.

    I live in the metro Northern VA area and have never had a problem getting interviews with only my AAS degree. For my particular situation, I found the time, cost and the energy trying to explain WGU was not worth the effort for me.
    So you never graduated? This wouldn't probably be a "post graduation experience" by definition. As far as them not knowing WGU, that happens all the time. Like dmarcisco said in his post, you just say that most schools have distance learning and people move on quickly from it. It's not that big of a deal anymore.

If I was a hiring manager, I would be confused why a person with a CEH, CHFI, MCSA, BS, and MS are applying for my entry-level job. I would wonder if you're just really stunted or your just looking to park at a job for a short amount of time.

    Also, there are a lot of internships and jobs out there in both the government and outside the government for fresh college and graduate school grads. In one of these recent "why isn't my MS getting me a foot in the door in entry level jobs" post from a few months back, I listed out quite a few. I'll see if I can dig it up.

    Also, try posting your resume with personal information redacted in a separate thread (so this one isn't derailed). It always helps to have a lot of eyes on your resume to spot what could be changed.
