Do you know if your employer checked your college record?

They were very particular about contacting all of my references but I don't think they even bothered to check my school to see if I went there or not.

That's because I technically haven't graduated yet. I still had to finish one more course from getting my diploma.

They didn't say a beep about that situation and gave me a job offer. 8 months later, I was promoted.

...the... hell? This is one of the market leader in telecom too. I finished my degree about a year into my work.

I know my employer checks to at least see that you do have the degree you have. The guy I replaced was fired for lying about having a college degree.

I had one employer even call my HS to make sure I was being truthful (to which I had to eat crow. :eek:)

My fiancee's friend lied to a company interviewing her about finishing school. She had one class left. They had initially offered her a job, found out about the school situation, and yanked the offer.

you've been trollin' your ass on every one of my threads, I've been ignoring your sorry ass but looks like you need to get a life. I'm surprised you manage to hold a vendetta against someone on internet.

I had a pretty extensive background check that included criminal, financial, and educational verification.

My company let go an employee of 3 years after it was found out he lied about having a University Degree on his Resume.
