I have read that online students need to be able to motivate themselves and must have good self-discipline. For this reason, do you think some employers might actually prefer employees who earned their degree online? It does show that they possess the self-starter skills that are in demand in the workplace.

That is a very intriguing take on the matter. I don't know if employers are making that connection, but if I had a degree from an online school, I would be sure to be making that point to potential employers!

It would depend on the job your are applying for. Most companies would want you to have some social skills and to be personable. However, if they want you in a back room working on a computer all day, then there would be no problem.

I don't think there is anything about getting a degree online that implies one is not sociable so I don't see why that would stop somebody from hiring somebody with an online degree to work with the public. I think that self-discipline is a good trait that many online students possess.
