Fully agreed with what you have written, Bill.

I took a similar route some 25 years ago...attended a graduate college for 
an advanced degree, but what landed me a job in the USA was not the advanced 
 knowledge or the latest technology; rather it was my three year experience 
 as a Design Engineer in Pakistan.

To be fair, I would hasten to add that I found having a Master's Degree 
helped immensely in one respect, at least for my first few years after 
finishing graduate school: It got me a couple thousand bucks per year salary 
 over what I'd have had at the same level of experience (I had worked for 
four years as an engineer previous to obtaining my advanced degree) with 
"only" a B.S.
