    Probably not in CS, since there are so many CS professionals with bachelor's degrees these days.

    Unless you're unusually good at CS despite your lack of a 4-year degree and can demonstrate that to someone who can hire you.

    Most employers today want their employees to have a Bachelors Degree.

    Depends on what you can actually DO with what you learned. You might be able to get on with a company like nerds2go, geek squad, etc, if you can help people with their computer problems. Or if you are good with computer repair, etc, you might get on with "the tech wreck guys" at a place like Staples. There are no obvious choices with a mere associate's degree. It's going to depend on convincing an employer you can actually do something worthwhile. So why did you go for associate's degree in CS? What were you aiming to do with it? What are your career aims, goals? What are you good at?

    I'd say slim to none chance with a big emphasis on none. The industry has changed a lot since the days of the mid 90s were you could just show up and show them what you could do and you'd get a job paying 6 figures. those days are long gone bye bye. nowadays, you've got HR and they don't judge applications on a case by case basis. you're just another number in the system and if your resume doesn't have a requirement you get tossed out before they even get to see your resume. suck it up and get your bachelor's.

    The answer is yes, but it would be at a clerical/paraprofessional level.  Without a 4 year degree, you would have a glass ceiling preventing advancement in your career.

    Yes you can. You can get a job without such a degree as well.
