I know the article says, "It depends". It really does, but experience can win out depending on other factors. If you're going for a job interview, highlight your experience and how it is relevant to the job at hand. Also, display your experience with CONFIDENCE. Employers like it when you are confident. It shows that you're able to take on any duties that they require of you. With all due respect to education, there's no better experience than actually applying the knowledge you used at a job.
I'm going to tell you a story. An internet marketing entrepreneur once told me that getting a degree in Internet marketing is somewhat pointless. Why? Doesn't getting an education help when it comes to marketing? Yes, but the thing is Internet marketing is always changing every day, every hour, every minute, every second. While you're stuck learning old concepts in school, Web 3.0 could already be out and marketers are learning to utilize it on the job. It's hard to teach good, old-fashioned experience.
In any case, if you lack experience, intern and/or volunteer. It's a good way to develop your resume. Having an education does help, but it's important that your current skills fit what employers need NOW.
