Can you be competitive without a degree?

Q. My career has spanned more than 25 years, and I have been very successful. I have managed large, successful sales teams as well as large project and development programs. Past employment was secured through relationships. I never finished college, and now I find that I can’t even get a call back from an employer, even for jobs I am perfectly suited for. Do I have to go back to school to get a job? Or is there something else I can do to get over this hurdle?
