Was that for a sales role or something else? How did they come across in your discussions with them?I applied for a job with Tesla. Got first interview but I was not successful.
I would now be reluctant to work for them given their corporate response to Kevin Sharpe's battery issues!
Regarding the degree... I would expect that appropriate experience would be acceptable. I don't have a degree but they said that would not matter for the right people.
I'd be truly enthusiastic about testing their cars for them...I did work part time for them over last winter in London and I don't have anywhere near a degree... I think if you are a true enthusiast then they would consider you as well.
