As the title says, I have to retake 1 class in order to graduate. This is at an American university for a bachelors degree in mathematics, and the class I must retake is only offered in the fall semester.
Can I apply for full-time jobs and get an offer contingent on my graduation? How should I indicate on my resume that I do not have my degree yet (though I am very close to having it)?
I am expecting that most potential employers will not be interested in hiring me right away since I do not officially have a degree. I am considering applying for summer internships that might lead to a job as one optional to deal with this.
So, is there any way I can leverage having 98% of a degree to get a job? It seems like it would be a waste of time to apply to full-time jobs requiring a degree in May, June, July, while fresh graduates who have degrees are on the hunt. I am unsure what my best options are.
